Never really had an auto's interior influence my purchase decision although for me the less on the gadgets the better...Straight forward stuff and a Beast of a car will be fine.

Wait, you never had the part of the car you spend the most time in & looking at/using influence what you buy?

true, but not necessarily a bad thing.
It is IMO when you look at the price tag.

The general aesthetics of new Benz's kill me! They seem so 'cladded' in appearance, and have lost their edge. I have nothing against Mercedes, as my dad has been a long time owner and fan, and i'm very familiar with their products. He has an '06 S65 & '07 ML500 that he bought brand new, and have been impressibly reliable. He is refusing to go with the newer Benz's cause he hates how they look, too! I've always been a BMW guy- hence my X5 and 328. I think my dad is slowly converting. Regardless, people like what they like. To me- the C63 looks like a smaller, Accord coupe. The interior looks cheap, tacky and edgy. However, it's much different than a BMW- and that what Mercedes are for... to be a different competitor. It will definitely be interesting to see how the 'new' C-class does. I've seen some in Boston!

no question...if you are deciding between c63 or m3 then you play in a game that most of us can only hate on...

However - the c63 front end looks jacked up but the interior is AWESOME when compared to the m3. if i had to put my $$ down, i agree with an earlier post and grab a GTR and smoke both these cars.

Now that that is cleared up...

So I saw a Mercedes C63 AMG Coupé today and I really liked it. It looked really high class and elegant. It was black with a two tone black and red interior. I must admit, it looks much sexier in person, although the where the rear window ends looks kind of demented. The E92's rear window ends smoothly (which I personally like more).

Hard decision for future!!!! Help!!!!!!
(obviously I am not going to buy it or an M3 in the next couple years, but I am starting to actually consider a C63 over a M3. I just have to drive them one after another.)

Here's a pic, but as I said you really have to see it in person. The pic does not do the justice.
Buy whatever YOU like. Why the fuck do you need to ask for other BMW user's approval? Will you be buying car for them to look at and judge you by, or for personal enjoyment? As for your "poll", yes, I've personally considered it and yes, it is possible that I will buy one in future. And if it makes you feel any better - yes, I am (as a current BMW owner) allowing you to consider purchasing one too and will not laugh at you if you'll buy one. Happy now?

haha bro, I do not give a damn about what other people think about me. I am asking in terms of a holistic view (performance, reliability, features, etc.) of educated people on the subject. I could care less if you do not like what I drive. It's just I do not know much about performance and numbers on cars and I do not really watch/read reviews etc. That's why I am asking. I am not trying to get your approval. lol

My purchases are mostly based off looks, so I wanted to get the story behind the cars too.

Just an update.

Well, I have been thinking....
And I truly believe both cars are amazing.

After a week or so, I am leaning heavily back to M3.
I would probably buy a used e92/e93 M3 when lease is up (because I do not think I really like the f30 look as much as current gen based solely off of the looks)

There's no spare tire, duh. Is it possible? Yes. But is it practical? Hell no. I already have little trunk space since I have an E93. If I put a tire there is will take up my whole trunk and I might not even be able to put my top down. Don't try to be a smart ass without thinking about what you're saying. And on top if it, someone that spent all this money on a car shouldn't have to deal with this crap.

You won't be disappointed in the M3.

E is for older people.
And I am actually thinking of e93 M3 now.
The weather in LA is awesome, so might as well.

It is a great car no doubt (as are all ///M and AMG cars), but doesn't have the sexy, salacious look of a younger person's car. Sorry!

but between what you have now, get rid of the cls63 and get yourself a proper m sport body for your 335 with upgraded tail lights. save up and get the new cls if you really like it.

that's what I would do, but then again I'm on my first BMW; I imagine you are getting bored of BMW
LOL at you giving advice to a guy who actually has the bucks to buy the car, oh wait, he actually owns a CLS....
Why don't you keep your day job at Starbucks and keep saving before you give advice to others with money who can pull the trigger today..

who are you to tell me what I can and cannot say?

FYI, I do not work at starbucks and if I really wanted to, I could be getting the CLS, but I didn't see the point because I only used to think of cars by the look, not power. I love the red interior of my car and speed was good enough for me, which is why I leased it. If I were into cars and wanted a powerful car before I got my car, I could have gotten it. I just was not into cars and this stuff at that time. The car decision to my used to be about looks, not performance. So be careful what you say before you say it.

My advice was just based off what I saw and have gathered by reading different things on the forums. You cannot say my opinion is wrong or stupid. I obtain the rights to believe what I want and if you do not agree, that's fine. It doesn't bother me. Just do not tell me to keep quiet.

I don't wanna start any tension or anything, so let's just end this.
