Are there any major issues with the W204 C63 AMG

Hello, let me put some context

My dream has always been to have a German sports coupe and it all started with BMW. I really wanted an E92 M3 but with the engine rod bearing issues and possibly the main bearing starting now and all it's really putting me away. I then looked at an older M3, the E46 which also have some issues and the damn rear axle plate carrier (known as subrame issue) to.

The C63 in comparison seem to be around 10k more expensive but for 2013, more recent than the BMW choices and they all seem to come with a 2 year warranty right off the bat from certified pre-owned. It sucks they don't come in manual transmission but hey. No dumb rod bearing issues... unless there are issues I am unaware off.

I did find out about the head bolt issue but it seems to only apply pre-facelift correct? And since the coupe came out with the sedan face lift all coupes are not affected?

So that being said, is there any major expensive issues known with this car except the one mentioned above? Also, I'm a DIYer, is DIYing still doable with this car?

Thanks for the input and replies!

No issues with these cars.
I use mine daily and I track occasionally

Not a great track car without cooling mods. Engine gets warm then goes into limp mode.

You're right about head studs being a pre-FL issue

I have a 2012 P31
Love it

2) GET GAS CARDS..... YOU'LL NEED THRM
