      Well, we knew sooner or later the E-class would get the new twin turbo M157 V8 motor.

        N63 sounds way better , with performance package X6 5.0i sounds pretty damn good.
        it's 3 db louder than Camaro SS with magnaflow exhaust. (we use IPhone so It wasn't that accurate)
        But S63 sounds way weaker , the only good thing about it is spraying fuel into headers between shifts for getting a deep shifing sound ,but it doesn't sound that good.

        I truly like my 6.2 NA motor and it runs like a champ. I think it's definitely one of the best built V8s. But I'm kind of lusting after the new W212 E63 wagon. Give up the 6.2 for the 5.5 just to have the ultimate sleeper? Dunno...

        Now, if they'd only bring over the C63 wagon...... Click here to enlarge

        I love the 6.2L engine as well and will be sad to see it go, but I think it had a good run. In the E63, it ran from MY 2007 to MY 2012.... that's a good 6 years. In the C63, it may continue to 2014.

        The E63 wagon is an ultimate sleeper and looks so AWESOME on the road Click here to enlarge

        On the other hand, I've been hearing great things about the new TT engine. I will probably get one right after the E63 face lift sometime in 2014 Click here to enlarge

        The main difference will be the M157 will be so much easier to extract power from early on. We are just now starting to see some high end power numbers from the M156 with boost. The M157 will come faster and ultimately it will have a higher ceiling.
