I have only driven one C63 and it was far more than a regular C Class with a big engine.
The E9X M3 is getting more and more like that, compared with the rawness of the E46, as is the new M5 compared to the E60 M5.
The Mercs seem to be getting more extreme while the M cars seem to be getting softer and softer. Not a good thing imho.
That's fine, But it's well documented the Merc doesn't do corners very well. It also has 2.3 ltrs over the M3 and still loses out on just about every back to back I've seen.
My point is really if it had the same power as the BM. How far would it trail?
