The tech website CNET just released a great comparision between the BMW M3 and the C63 AMG.
“The C63 is an absolute torque monster, which makes it more fun to drive at low speeds.”
“The COMAND system is light years ahead of the old iDrive system. The system smartly uses the instrument-cluster LCD for things like navigation prompts, so it’s easier to use while in motion.”
“With the money you’ll save by purchasing the C63, you’ll be able to buy new tires after you burn through the first set doing doughnuts in the parking lot.”
In the end…
“We are bracing ourselves for the howls of BMW fans. Hey, we like Bimmers, too, but all things taken into account, the C63 won out. In most rounds, the C63 scraped by the M3 just a little, gaining precious ground for cabin tech features, exterior looks, and price. For all-around performance, the cars tied–the C63 boosted by its bigger engine, the M3 helped by its DCT. After BMW updates its cabin tech and electronics interface next year, the M3 will probably fare better in a rematch.”
