I do have the plate S11EPS plate on it - these pics were taken shortly after I got the car - the NDM plate is a company one and it was first registered with that on, whilst my SHEPS plate was on my CL.

We currently have one big scheme running in Kensington (de Vere gardens, on KHS) and one in Chelsea (Henry Moore Court on Manressa Rd) so I'm driving in that part of London at least once a week.

No V8 this time round, the AMG power plant is a F1 team from Brackely-developed turbo 4 pot, with 360bhp, 4wheel drive and a 7 speed twin clutch box.
Only seen disguised spy shots of the A45 Si,but it looks good.

360bhp from a turbo 4pot sounds impressive,what sort of torque figure are we talking?

It's my next car. A45 not CLA, going to wait till a few are on the road first though to see if the reality is as good as it is on paper.

What is it with these C63's??

Mate of mine sold his 911 for one and loves it... his text last week was '126mph and only 3000rpm .. im gonna lose my licence with this thing'

Met him last night and he was raving about it....

Well I had a little trip to mb world in brooklands today so I could have a sit/play around with a c63 and I liked it a lot!

The sound from the Sls and the c63 gunning round the track was just unreal,a different sound all together than my m5 ( also having the tubis) that was a nice sound also,
So now it will be a sleepless night on Sunday worrying if I choose the rite colour combination !!!!! Keep looking at sheps and it dose look good in that combo but I got a gut felling I should go with white and red! Argghhhh

I haven't had a chance to speak to them yet as they were not open this weekend. Although I know that the extra premium will be whatever the optional extra cost is split over 23 so any one know what the cost of LSD is on the c63

LSD is a 1580 option so would be an extra 69 pm
I have been looking through loads of posts on various forums and I still can't make up my mind on it.
I only ever do a little fast road driving ESP always left on.
In all fairness I recon I would be able to decide Easier if I had any mechanical brain at all! But I haven't.

Jut had a quick look on the MB website; diff is 1,745.00 (I guessed at 1500 last night - not too far out, eh?!).

So, assuming you don't get any discount off of the extras, an it doesn't add any thing to RV of the car the diff will cost per month (asshmjng a 3+23 deal) 1,745/26 = 67 and some pennies.

I have an ex-company van that Carl can use better than I can, so running him down to the office for him to collect it. Despite it only being a run to the office for me, I'm sure with Carlos in the car it will be a mini-adventure of mayhem!

That Mart, much appreciated.
I feel very lucky to have it on the drive and still get a kick of excitement every time I twist the key.

That was palmnuts.
Probably the finest C63 in the UK.
Pretty much every box ticked, but with additional factory treatments such as leather dash. Truly awesome.
