Enjoyed the head to head with the M3 and C63. Why don't they ever use the E90 in these tests so people won't say how its a 2 door vs a 4 door?

I can see why they never let the Stig talk on TG.

awesome video. Tiff is definitely a better driver, which gives the merc an advantage in these comparisons. both awesome cars though, each in their own right.

M3 is overall a better sports car then C63 AMG. I was surprised though to see a recent Car and driver magazines best handling 7 cars assembled under $100K article. In which the M3 only placed 4th. It was disappointing that they did not include the new M3 with competition package in that article and instead choose one with 18" wheel and tires standard M3 coupe.

Why did they do that was beyond me....... Why would you not select the best form of M3 when you did that for all the other cars.

It probably still wouldn't be in the top 3 since the writers for C&D were so stern on the weight gain issue. What seemed ironic is that the cars on the top 3 shared one common issue: lack of power. You just can't please everyone.

Depends on your style of driving. If you like messing around the C63 will be more fun. Seriously what are you going to do with extra 2 second of your life?

That steering wheel literally dances in Tiff's hands. He's such a fun driver to watch.

The 2 seconds isn't just a track time advantage... the extra control can be the difference between hitting the guard rail or not. With the power of the AMG and the lack of a refined chassis, many drivers who want it to "mess around" are a ticking time bomb in that car. I won't profess to say that I'm a great driver but the M3 makes me a much better driver than I really am.

The ONLY thing the AMG does better is straight line acceleration. For everything else, the M3 is the better car.

Hmm.. M3 is a weapon (deadly in the right hands), C63 is a Sofa (deadly if it falls on you or catches fire under you)



Have now met Plato, Tiff and Stiggy Collins.

Nice vid ... Always good to see the M3 on top. Everyone knows the C63 has great speed but I love seeing the M beat it out at the track ...

not surprised at all. its like they took the originals and just hightlighted the areas that they focused on when they originally developed the car.
