IMO. M3 all the way
Wtf are you talking about that the C63 is more expensive?

The C63 well equipped was $78K and the M3 was $88K similarily equipped when I was looking.

Edit: Currently the C63 bases at $63 900 and essentially fully loaded...including Performance Pack and Premium pack it tops out at $78 990.

The M3 sedan bases at $70 300. With the same equipment the M3 is $85 200.

(All prices are for Canada in CDN dollars)

The C63 is no joke with PP and one heck of a good bang for the buck. Handling isn't up to the M3, but the sound and power is nuts.
