Also, the BS costs 115 EUR so it's 15k cheaper too. Although that is base price I don't know about the aero package.

Everyone will hate me for this but I love the silver trimmings around the Benz. Gives it a nice modern accent compared to the plastic looking M3.

The BS is so sick and purposeful looking!! MB is saying that this will be the best handling car they have ever produced, so I expect it to be super quick around the track.. what a beast. I still prefer the looks of the CLK BS over this though, that car was/is perfect:

I dunno, C63's front end remind me of X6/X5M, and the sides scream Mitsu Lancer Evo...

P-car GT3 RS for $135K list. No comparison. And it pains me to say it.

Honestly, that Benz is one of the coolest-looking and best-sounding cars I have ever seen.

Well... I think the C63 wins this by default... M3 GTS never even showed up for the party... and by party I mean the NA market

I have a feeling people vote for the Benz just to be different knowing quite well this will be a BMW-biased board. So to those votes I call BS especially when answers are limited to BENZ BECAUSE SOUNDS GOOD YUM.

Ok and the M3 doesn't sound good? I'd take a bone stock standard E92 M3 over the Benz anyday, let alone this GTS. There's more to a car than the ability to do burnouts. The Benz, of course, looks GREAT and I'm sure it's a beast in terms of grip, power, luxury, etc but it's still no driver's car. Can't throw coilovers on a car and go INSTANT DRIVER'S CAR. When the base car of both camps (328i vs C300) come out to play, the answer is obvious. It's no M3.

GTS is cooler but still it's a total bitch because it should have been a lot better. But yea, whoever wouldn't get a GT3RS over either car is nuts. The last CLK63 BS looked a lot better. That red BS looks like a Honda Accord with a Mugen body kit straight off the pages of import tuner. Lotta hating today because it's a Monday and only bartenders like Mondays.

Are you really that biased and ignorant? Do you really still think that this C63 BS won't be a driver's car? You've got to be living under a rock. There's more to owning a car than taking it to a track. I'd rather take the more unique looking, better sounding (admittedly both subjective points) Benz. I bet I'll have a hell of a good time driving it and my ego won't be crushed if someone in a GTS manages to be fractionally faster on the track or on some backroad because I'll have a shit-eating grin plastered on my face.

Have you even driven a C63? We have one. While it's definitely nowhere near as balanced on the limit (you can really feel the weight shifting from tire to tire) and the transmission isn't as good as an M3's, it's a hell of a thing to drive.

'Fraid you might have to get your eyes checked out, or you might just need to study up on your auto knowledge.

^^^ Well said. I'm a BMW guy too but you're a fool if you don't look at what rivals are now producing. I can't remember which review it was but the new C63 coupe supposedly handles really well.
