    That car looks awesome IMO. What a beast of a car. Anyhow, I think they should have done a proper comparison against the M3.

    Autocar video review of the new C63 AMG Coupe

    This is much better than your typical Autocar video. For one, the car isn't being tested while it's raining since they are not in Britain and instead in Spain. We suggest they make that a permanent change. The car looks and sounds fanstastic, great exhaust note. It's pretty surprising to hear the reviewer claim the C63 steering feel is better than that of the M3. That is a bold claim as Mercedes traditionally has lacked vs. BMW in this area. The reviewer also ends up saying the car is more entertaining than the M3 which is another bold claim. Direct comparison, please.

    to the above, honestly the steering is better in my c63 than it was in my m3. I let my friend drive my car who is a very very good driver and he has an m3 czp and he agrees. the m3 steering is to electronic feeling, falsely weighted. no question the m3 handles better thou

    ^ I like that !

    BTW i prefer M3's steering, it's a bit light compared to previous M3's but it's much better than C63's vague steering.

    Awesome car, just not sure about the looks Click here to enlarge I see a lot of Accord coupe in it. And call me crazy but starting at 42 seconds from the overhead view the car kind of looks like the C230 kompressor Click here to enlarge I'm sure this car is purely a BEAST, but I just think the Sedan is nicer! Maybe I'll change my mind when I see the Black Series Click here to enlarge

    The back window does have a bit of Accord'ish in it, but other than that the car is a beauty IMO. The shifting sounds a lot nicer too with the new transmission. Almost like an SMG.

    Don't believe it is a new transmission?

    The refreshed C63 also has a redesigned suspension. Mercedes AMG has changed the front axle, rear axle and has widened the rear track, resulting in increased responsiveness and agility. The front damper and springs have been improved too.

    So it should be even better now.

    Have you driven a C63 with the new suspension redesign?

    Impressive the way Mercedes continues to improve the car.

    Why BMW can't do the same I have no idea.
