Some facts for you...

<br>The official pre-production 0-100kph (not 0-60mph) figures for both the C32 and M3 are identical at 5.2 seconds.<p>Go to Edmunds.com and check the resale value of a '95 M3 and a '95 C36. The C36 is higher, even when you consider the tradein or retail value as a percentage of the original purchase price.<p>Check the reliability of 3-series vs C-class, the C-class is better.<p>M-B actually sells more vehicles in the U.S. than BMW. They have every year since 1997.<br>

Not really both are great cars and decision would come down to individual preferences..

As for the new M3, I would rather have a na straight six than the supercharged engine. I think Mercedes needs to build the C36 from the ground up instead of just trying to play catch up with BMW. To be honest, I don't think they are that concerned about the category as they have never really competed with the M3 in terms of volume.

Re: E46 ///M3 vs AMG C32 - BMW vs AMG

whooo whee, we do have a bunch of idiots here don't we? anyway i agree with the original author. M3 is the way to go. BMW does not need another company to make super cars, like AMG> Bmw does not need to create sky high prices. BMW is for those who want performance, luxury, and overall good car. Mercedes is for older people, who want luxury, and some semblance of performace. e 55-slushbox transmission, ugly styling, ugly exhaust, good performance. m5-perfect gearbox, perfect brakes, lovely styling, great quad exhaust, supreme performance. man what editor would want the e55 over the m5. man if i were to spend 80G's on a car, i want to do the shifiting, not some funky computer that trips over its own gears.

Re: E46 ///M3 vs AMG C32 - BMW vs AMG

hye buddy, i am buying an M3 cuz of its performance, not cuz of its luxury you idiot. yeah auto is a luxury, if i wanted a luxury car i would have gotten myself a 750il. but i want a sports car, so i chose the m3. besides clk's are for old guys with shriveled nuts. you will never see a young person openly admit to driving a clk. also you will never see an old guy in an m3. AMG blows, all they make are large, powerful engines while M makes smooth, powerful, engines. inline is the way to go, not some behemouth v-8. besides a CLK 55 looks like every other clk, what are the diff? M3 comes with 18 tires, 19 optional clk 17. m3 gearbox SPORTY 6 speed. CLK shrived nut shifter, m3 brakes supreme m5 brakes CLK typical brakes. besides how good are you going to feel when someone plucks your little mercedes symbol off your hood. also m3 can be highly modified with companies such as dinan, AC Schintzer, ECIS, Hartge, Bekker, AA TUrbo, Jim Conforti,and sharked. what can the CLK do? nothing its been modified to its limits, it can't go further. the m3 is only at the beginning it can be so modified it can break 400 hp. has any benz owner every dynoed their car> no, cuz its pointless, they are weak. hey anyone know the prices of yeah CLK 55-70G's stock, M3-49500 stock. hey i think i will buy the m3, and used the 20G's and modifiy it even more. <p><p><p><p><p>: : whooo whee, we do have a bunch of idiots here don't we? anyway i agree with the original author.
