Not worth it. You can get one with low miles (around 10,000 or so) for close to 15k off. Let someone else take the depreciation hit.

PS The new C63 AMG coupe Black Series looks amazing but it's GTR money new.

Doubt there will be anyone selling the coupe this soon.. Even if there is anyone selling it wouldn't be that much cheaper than a brand new one.

You are correct. Thus the reason I won't be getting a coupe even though I prefer it.

It's 80k new.

Base c63 coupe FTW! No options. Maybe just the performance package.

Shit, maybe I might just get the sedan.

On my 335 with a Procede and all mods all highway 25 MPG and with the M3, only 7,100 miles on the clock all highway, I am getting about 20 MPG. Not bad at all...

Exactly. And it's the same with any British performance car, too. And certain Italian versions.

Completely agree. You could easily argue the M3 depreciates more than the C63.

All I said was the C63 depreciates fast not faster than xyz car. Depreciation is a great thing for second hand buyers and the C63 drops value like a rock.
