Post I almost bought an M3...

Then, at the urging of a friend, I test drove a C63 and, wouldn't you know it, I bought one two days later.

I'd wanted an M3 since I was in high school in the 80's. But one stint behind the wheel of the C63 and I was sold. I turned my back on the M3 completely. Big torque is the SHIT! (Sorry, but... Wow!)

So, I've had it for almost two months. I've got 4000 miles on it. I'm on my second set of rear tires (after I post some pictures you'll see why). And I love this car 100%. I took it to Evosport after I put on about 1500 miles and they did the ECU w/ Powerchip and installed high flow air filters. The check engine light kept coming on, and they kept tweaking the maps until it was completely dialed in. It took a few hours, and I'm impressed that they took the time to make sure it was flawless. So impressed, in fact, I'm taking it back tomorrow for a pulley and airbox upgrade. The ECU remap made an appreciable difference in power, and I know better than to expect the same with the next upgrades, but I love the thought of having close to 600hp in a C class. Once the exhaust is done (X-pipe to replace the resonator box and secondary cat delete) it'll be there...

Anyway, it's a 2009 in Palladium Silver with black leather, carbon interior trim, LSD, P02 package and too much other factory stuff to list. I had it tinted, blacked out the window trim, and besides the Evosport treatment, it's all done. This is a real Hot Rod and I'm glad to share my experiences with any and all of you.

Thanks and enjoy the pics,
