Since you already have an M3 I'd mix it up for the four door! Get the Merc, 6.3 litres of fury.

Get an M3 so that you can use your M3 on the weekends.

I say C63, you already have an M3 and there is not much difference between sedan and coupe; except 4doors (IMO). The other issue I see you running into is that the Evo is AWD and better suited for snow and your stated choices are all rear drive.

In that case I would get a C63
(RS4 was only 6MT)

Lol! I agree but my cousin just picked up an isf based solely on the fact that he wants to keep it for around 5 years, and he doesn't trust the euro counterparts... Food for thought
