CNET – Mercedes C63 AMG vs. BMW M3

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.”

2009 C63 Beige and Grey Leather Interiors and AMG Select Fabric

The 2009 C63 is available with 5 interior options. Having only seen the Black Leather (210), I was at a loss when Randall from California asked me exactly what the other interiors looked like. Since I couldn’t answer his question he visited a couple of local dealers and here are the results!

Sahara Beige/Black Leather Interior (205) only has the Beige Leather on the front of the driver and passenger seats. The whole dash, back of the seats and headliner are black.

Grey/Black Leather Interior (208) has grey seats AND a grey lower dash. The upper dash, back of the seats and headliner are black.

The AMG Select Fabric Interiors (701 and 718) which are standard for 2009, are still a bit of a mystery. We have not seen it in person but it should look something like this. The Mercedes-Benz fabric has always been very good looking and shockingly durable. It was standard on the 2006 ML’s for a brief time and I was very impressed with the high quality and appearance of the fabric.

Thanks to Randall for filling in this gap my C63 knowledge!

Mercedes C63 AMG vs. BMW M3 – Edmunds Comparison Test

Mercedes C63 AMG

“The M3’s V8 is as swift and sharp as a katana sword, while the C63’s V8 punches like a set of brass knuckles. And whereas the M3 sounds best when it’s being caned ruthlessly, the C63 barks like a beast when you simply twist the key and start it.”

“Despite boasting similar power-to-weight ratios, the C63 runs notably quicker than the M3 sedan in a straight line. It clicks off the quarter-mile in 12.5 seconds at113.7 mph, compared to the BMW’s 12.9 seconds at 111.1 mph, an advantage of 0.4second and 2.6 mph. Likewise, 60 mph comes up in 4.1 seconds in the Benz and 4.5seconds in the Bimmer.”

“But if powersliding hooliganism is more your style, then the C63 is your choice, since it’ll sustain a tail-out attitude around a corner until the steel cords show through the rear tires.”

“The 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG also crackles with character, something the M3 could use a bit more of.”

A lot of people are comparing the Mercedes-Benz C63 to the BMW M3. Everyone wants to drive this new car! For a long time, the M3 has been the top of the heap in the small and sporty category. Most reviewers are acknowledging that the M3 is still a great car, very balanced and capable, but the consensus is that the C63 is more fun! Take a look at the full review from Edmunds. If you are interested in ordering a C63 or being notified if one become available, please let me know!

C63 AMG – Edmunds Inside Line

Mercedes C63 AMG Motor Trend Review


“Where this engine will trump the forthcoming M3’s V-8 is not with its 30-plus extra horsepower, but with its titanic 148-pound-foot torque advantage.”

“Turn-in is quick, effort builds naturally with cornering intensity, and the chassis responds in ways that would make a blindfolded Bimmerphile surprised to find a three-pointed star on the airbag cover.”

“Perhaps the most intoxicating aspect of car is its engine note-pure NASCAR stocker outside (it’s impossible to believe this car passes the 75-dBA Euro noise regs), just enough mechanical music inside.”
