I've driven both cars and both have their pros and cons. The m3 no doubt about it feels like more of a "driver's car" even though the c32 has more power. The SMG transmission is a great piece of machinery that I hope finds its way to Mercedes in some form. That being said, a Bimmer is still not a Mercedes - For comfort and prestige Mercedes will win on name alone - and the C32 also happens to haul ass. ;0)

I dont know where you get your statistics from, but in most credible Automotive Magazines, the C32 AMG beats the M3 from any 0- whatever run. True, the M3 might handle better than the C32, but in speed comparisons, the M3 has nothing on the C32.

As for the E55 comparison, its funny that this "slushbox transmission" devastates the M5 performance wise. "Good performance?" Psh, the E55 DESTROYS the "supreme performance" M5 in ANY 0 to whatever competition.

You say the MBZ has no tuning? Are you deaf? Have you ever heard of Renntech, Brabus or Kleeman? You know, Kleeman, the guys who created the worlds fastest SUV. Renntech tuned the the CLK GTX, a car that will devastate ANY tuned BMW.

Go ahead insult MBZ engines all you want, atleast the C32 enginge doesnt spontaneously EXPLODE.

I own a drop top CLK430 sitting on 19

I own a drop top CLK430 sitting on 19" chrome and let me tell you, from day one I have gotten more ass from that car than any other time. My co-worker owns a M3, nice car, but when we go out in his car, nothing special. BMW's are a dime a dozen, everybody and their mama has one. CLK's are rare (especially conv.) and not every person w/ a $15/hr job can afford one. CLK's by far is a better, more exclsuive vehicle, hands down.

Nope! No shriveled nuts here.

I just turned 33, Just bought my CLK55 AMG, and im happy to report no shriveled nuts here. I also dont think that 33 is considered old. A neighbor of mine, whos an NFL'er Is on his 3rd M3, 4th soon on the way. He did give me the hell tour, and hey I give props to BMW. This thing is a machine! It was was a tough choice for me when he offered to sell me one from his garage, perfect color, custom ordered interior, DINAN aftermarket producing in excess of 370BHP. Still I bought a CLK. I do want the tire vaporizing power, I do want the sharp looks, I do expect some luxury as well. these two cars can go head to head, but it depends what you ultimatley prefer. I want a head turning car that I can take out for a night on the town, still use as a daily driver, and still be able to run with anything out there. I think I have that perfect blend, plus I wanted something a little more exclusive. When I invest in a vehicle, especially a high end vehicle, I want something that might be a little tough for a kid in high school whos pumping gas every spare moment to afford to lease. If the Bimmer driver thinks he has something better, good for him, he made his choice on what he expects, I made mine. To argue a mute point on a message forum seems like time that could be better spent driving. As a matter of fact, thats where im off to.

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

Well, C32 is proven to have better brake compare to E46 M3. C32 only takes 118 feet from 60-0 compare to E46 M3 which takes 125 feet. No offense, but I also like BMW better than Mercedes, but now, Mercedes release better car compare from the past. <p>If you HAVE money, you can go with C32. E55 is not that bad, wait till you see the new 6 speed automatic transmission on 2003 E-class E50 (New body Style), AMG going to support the new E50 AMG with 5.0L V8 supercharge, which will produce about 450hp. Now, you can push this car to the limit.

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

C32 is proven better than the E46 M3. Read the automobile magazine. They reviewed S4, E46 M3, and C32. C32 is proven better than E46 M3, expcept the price. 0-60 performance is the same, 5.2 seconds, which I think is not that bad for automatic vs. manual. <p>

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. BMW-brings me women, mercedes-i have old shriveled nuts, but hey i got a nice car. <p>Hey moron do you not realize that Motorsport tunes the bimmers cars like AMG tunes benz. Neither manafacturer makes a supersport car without using AMG or Motorsport<br>

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

I completely agree. The E46 M3 is AWESOME. So much better than the Mercedes. Not to say the MBZ is a piece of junk, but I strongly support the M3. E46 is faster, cheaper, better looking, sounding, more exclusive, nicer interior, performs better in ALL aspects, etc. It's got everything. I own both benz but i love BMW. Benz isnt all that bad, just BMW slaughters. Some might like the C32 just because Benz used to be the most prestigeous, but the BMW proves itself better. I have to say again, BMW slaughters, simply too good for the C32. Not to boast, but i know SOOOO much about cars. The M3 is a clear winner. <p>

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

First of all, i would like to say that M3 are the shit.....i had a 96 was actually ownes by Aaron Neuman of Neuspeed, before me. I have to say that i had a lot of fun with that car. Also the mods, available for the M3 comes relatively cheaper than the Mb'z.....a lot more options, instead of a engine transplant of some redically priced Brabus 5.0 or Amg kompressor, etc.....stupid shit, wit the e36 M3 you can just about do anything to it.and the best thing is that it comes powerful enough to smoke the rice rockets of today, for those who have a tight budget. But i got to give the c46 its proper of my friends drives a 98AMG c46. And he used to smoke me all the time. Low end, high end didnt matter he smoked me. But i have traded in my M3 for a 00' prelude SH, dont laugh...i traded it in with one intention..........TURBO..i have spent over 20,000 in mods. No Fmax or Drag......but fully custom fabricated TDo4-Apexi intercooler, blowoff, HKS waste gasket, Jg throttle body....aem cams.....Vafc, 9 puck clutch, apexi N1 exhaust, MSD ignition, Blitz sbci-d, black widow kit, RH M5 rims wrapped in parada....yes the full 9 yards......and i gotta say i smoke E36 like nothing.....hahahaha, even my friends c46 suffered the wrath of the rising sun......but one last input....i have already ordered my e46 M3.....coming this Nov.<p>DOPE ASS<br>P-LUDE
