Already have the taillights, exhaust, suspension, stage 3 software, limited slip,carbon fiber intake, etc.
my car: http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...specialty-file
Dont want a "proper m sport body". Have driven 2008 M3, CLS63, my 335 and for how I drive and what I like, the M is at the bottom of that list.

I dont like the look of the new CLS, and would never buy one new. They depreciate faster than they drive. 40-50% over 2-3 years. I dont want to save up my money then flush it down the dealers toilet, but if you have the money then knock yourself out.
You asked about Mercedes C63 compared to BMW M3 and you arent getting it for 2 years? Come back and ask then, 2 years is a long time and I am pretty sure the cars will be a little different than they are now.

I think the black is going to be in a different league than the regular AMG. The black is likely going to be in the $100k area. I'm surprised they haven't announced official pricing yet.

EDIT
Goggled it. Rumor for estimate is that it's starting at $90k. After options and tax I wouldn't be surprised to see this car costing $120-140k. That's M5 pricing, but probably worse because theyre a limited edition, so you'll be buying at MSRP.

Damn, your car was on Car and Driver??! Crazy.
I was just saying get M sport body for the looks. That's why I have it.
And didn't know the CLS63 depreciates that quickly. Might as well buy a used one in a few years!
And yeah, I know I should ask later, but I was so tempted and wanted to just know everyone's opinions.

You wish MSRP!!! The car is going to me marked up like crazy!

The C63 I cost was built to be around $82k online.
At the dealership, it was listed for $91k!!

That's about 10% higher!!!

Youch! I was being optimistic! lol

True, if there is a markup, the black series will be insanely expensive. I've found generally, that not all dealers play those games with limited editions and you can usually find one who's willing to do the right thing (sell for MSRP).

I decided to go M3 over C63, but I made that decision assuming they were the same price or, at the least, that I'm buying under MSRP. If I have to choose against a C63 at MSRP (or over), choosing the M3 becomes a much easier decision as those can be had for "invoice + $X" pricing.

You wouldn't like a C350 over a 335 it's not even close.C63 or nothing and still not sure you would prefer this over the Bimmer.I have driven both but if it's change you need like myself it's a definite maybe.

Saw one of these in matte black last night in Calgary, oh man what a sexy beast! I would personally never get a car in a matte finish, but this looked amazing.

And even my wife couldn't believe someone would compare these to an accord coupe...

exactly. it's c63 or nothing.
335 kills c350
I personally would even rather have my 328 over the c350.

C63 > M3 any day even though I think the M3 looks a lot nicer. With a software mod you can unleash the full power of the engine, even though it will smoke an M3 on the road if its 100% stock. An M3 with $10k of mods cant touch a stock C63 with just a software mod. Who cares about the track, almost everyone here drives their car on the street only.

In that case, you cannot drive that fast in the streets anyway, so it doesn't matter how much more powerful the car is.
After a week or so, I have come back to thinking M3 because of looks.

Well, its always nice to have a powerful car. I can go faster on the street with my bicycle than my BMW. Low profile runflat tires are the worst invention. I can't count how many rims and tires I've destroyed.

M3 interior is too much like a standard 3 series.
