You really think the C63 has better steering feel than the M3? I'd have to beg to differ, especially on the road. I found the C63 positively vague in comparison to the M3.
I do agree that the ample torque and lower grip limits (along with much more intrusive traction control) make the C63 the safer and/or more usable car for the average Joe, but how many average Joes buy cars like these?
