Uh, no. The e90 body has been out since 2006. The e92 since 2007 and the design is based on the e90 anyways. Besides, the facelift on the 2011 C class is much more significant. The 90/92 facelift was hardly noticeable. At any rate, It does not matter what year it came out. Some design ages better than others. The current 3 series has not aged as well as some other designs.

It's nice of the VW to lend the MK6 GTI steering wheel to Mercedes!

The RS5 looks big and heavy, the benz looks small and dinky, and the M3 looks just right However in sedan form, the C63 looks the best, then the RS4, then M3 IMO. Go figure

2 cars that should NOT have been built into a coupe is the CTS-V and C63. Imo they both look great as a 4door but the Coupe versions just don't look right. I do however love the interior on the new C63.

BMW DEFINITELY has the front nailed. The rest, I feel, lacks in comparison to the other two.

I hope the new M comes with some manly exhaust like the AMG.

I do like the Audi from the behind. Too bad I wont see it from my rear view mirror. The interior is nice in the Audi but I will always love the e92.

The E92 is looking dated. However, we all know the M3 blows away the other in terms of handling, fun, etc. Can't wait to see the F32 M and I predict they stick with V8!

I don't know, but a 6.2 V8 in a compact car sounds pretty fun still

The C63 coupe is like a Facebook chick's photos. From some angles it looks blazing hot and from others it looks kinda fugly. Need to see one in person.

Plus I'm holding out for the 5.5L turbo V8 to be dropped into the C class. Once that happens it's on.

They are all great looking cars but since only the m3 will be available with a manual transmission my choice is simple: m3. 3 pedals or nothing!

I think the RS5 is the worst in everything... Exterior just seems overly done w/ ginormous, ugly grill, interior looks cluttered and I'm annoyed of it already, and performance-wise it's in last too. C63 is purteh, and M3 is still #1 IMO, but RS5 is waaaay down my list of want.

BMW is the only that looks restrained, and I like it more for it. Audi is classy looking too, but the Merc is over the top - AMG tradition I guess!


they're all great cars, differences are design, brand loyalty and certain specifics character traits when pushed to limit. On every day drive, it's just about how they feel that wins you over. Thankfully we have the choice.

The flabtastic RS5 looks like a fat cross-eyed child forcing cake into it's mouth...

C63 looks great as a 4 door, but doesn't really work in this shape, looks too stubby.. and the rear wheels look lost in the expanse of metal on the side of the car... maybe a different colour would help.

M3 looks athletic, and although it's been around for a little while, I don't think it looks much more dated than the Audi or the Merc, considering the C63 saloon has been around for a little while, and Audi have been rehashing the same design for years.

Interiors I'm not too fussed about... The Merc is nice, from experience I'd say the Audi's is probably over-rated, and the M3s will just seem so familiar to BMW drivers...

All in, I'm hard pushed to fault the M3... and if the Merc was a 4 door, it'd be right up there too... but the RS5 is a long looong way behind.

+1

C63 coupe exterior is good for a Merc. It has some nice lines. The headlights are nice using the SL design. The Steering wheel finally got changed, which looks better than other two. However, I still hate the interior overall. AMG shouldve kept their 5 spoke design wheel or something similar. Multi spokes rims really kill it.

Exterior:
1. C63 (1st place, compared to C coupe back then, this is a winner from MB)
2. M3 (according to luckistryke, the exhaust tips needs improvement or on their new developed M Performance Exhaust, the single walled idea was good, could use bigger tips.)
3. RS5 (RS4's bumper was more aggressive.)

Interior:
1. RS5 (The steering wheel is lame... not sporty enough for a RS car.)
2. M3
3. C63 (I really can't stand the middle console, which really drives me away from the C class because I am sitting in the car majority of the time. Interior to me is important. M3 has the balance.)

Wheels:
1. M3
2. RS5
3. C63 (the current one, the design is so lame)

For DD: M3 is still my choice. More aftermarkets parts are available.
