Really? Interesting - what were your parameters for 'marking' them? What did you find the BMW did better?

I can understand why the lease costs are cheaper on the C63 - it has been manufacturer supported pretty much since release, purely to get bums on seats and cars on the road; whereas I cannot see BMW heavily supporting a more 'mainstream' car so early in its life-cycle - if they had to do that it wouldn't be saying much for their confidence in the car's abilities to sell.
