Very nice car, Congrats!

My father has a 2010 C63 (sedan obv) in Black in our garage atm.
Your right. Sound is simply awesome. We were slightly worried we might get sick of the noise all the time (LOL what a joke) but you just do not get tired of it. And i love it how when you turn the engine on, it gives it a bit of a rev.

Only problem is the tires. They last about 15k (less if you give it more boot) and they are a tad pricey. One question though, i didnt know you can get them without Keyless Go, i presume you just took start stop button off and use key or is that a new option?

Anyway i hope you enjoy it and have fun.

Totally agree on the start up. Even when warm it does the little bark thing. And the sound so far is nothing short of EPIC. Only ventured to about 4500rpm max and cannot fathom what it will sound like at 7000rpm. It also has some lovely pops and crackles as you slow down...

**excuse me while I go and change underwear**

Keyless go is an option even on C63.. go figure.. But like I said I prefer a key to turn.

Mate, I don't think I have a chance, I will be ripped asunder by the thunderous roar. Gonna have to look at the guys with meth to take that baby on.

Pretty disappointed I didn't get time to hit up bondi last night and check it out. Definitely a must do.

besides, you'd need a beefy exhaust to let those c63s know you won't go down without a fight! it's like a cheetah vs lion...

Looks very nice! I like to think I had some influence in bringing you over to the Mercedes side even if you didn't get the fuel efficient diesel
