    Next generation C may get it although then things will truly be bananas.

    So far just the big boys. Next car to get it will be the SL.

    Gotcha. And when is the next gen C going to debut ? Also...has AMG said when they will stop building the M156 ?

    M156 will likely last the C63 BS and SLS production runs. So a few more years I would think at most.

    Next gen C should be debuting next year. Likely a 2013 model.

    Not dumb necessarily. The SLS is supposed to more raw/responsive and you want a high revving NA beast for that. The SLS is designed to do more than drag race.

    Exactly...and the motor in the SLS is very different from a regular M156...not to mention being dry sumped. Can't wait to see if they really do make an SLS Black Series. That thing will be the baddest mofo on the street.

    why does all the cool stuff happen when im not there??
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Agreed... if that happens, it'll be terrific.

    Since this was already negative DA, and turbo motors don't really respond as much to DA fluctuation, getting another quarter-second out of it without any further mods might be tough... at least, not a slam-dunk certainty. Look at the results already... going from so-so weather, to pretty decent (negative DA) weather, only picked up 1 tenth. And assuming it was SGC piloting it, there's not much "driver-mod" to be gained - he's proven to be one of the quickest/fastest experienced MB drivers around.

    OT, but to me this makes the 997.2TT(and S) w/ PDK even more impressive, to be able to do 10's literally bone showroom stock is crazy. These suckers weigh a lot more, but still, impressive.

    I haven't followed it very closely, but that sounds too soon, to me. The w204 just got a pretty major facelift (minor exterior, major interior). I expect it'll be around for more than one model year before the w205 hits.

    It isn't a slam dunk but it is within reason.

    A possibility is the coupe is around longer than the sedan.
