    Getting old

    You know you are getting old when you have, not one, but two family car, and  I don't even have my own family yet ;)

    We did a performance comparison between the C63 and E63.  From 0 -100km/h,  they are both identical. From 100- 200km/h,  the C63 slightly edges ahead. On driftability,  The C63 comes with a LSD but E63T doesn't have an optional LSD or sport package. As a result,  the C63 is a much better drift car. On driveability and comfort, the E63 has the adjustable damper suspension setting, which makes it a much better daily car. Also E63 has a wet clutch type transmisson system (MCT), down/up shift is more responsive and less power-loss, but it still can't compare the modern dual clutch system. The exhaust sound wise, E63 is surprisingly louder, sounds very similar to one of those american's Harley Davidson. I think AMG tuned the exhaust sound for the american market, very muscle car like. BMW needs to learn from them on that department.

    Having two estate is a little redudent, most likely I will get rid of the C63 and debadge the E as my daily driver. Sacrificing performance for comfort is another sign of getting old Smiley

    Here's a photos of the family car.

    Thanks easy. Yes, I think the 6.3 NA engine will be a classic,  the last version of large displacement naturally aspriated production engine from Mercedes. As the emission standard getting more strict every year. Most high performance engine will be DFI turbo with smaller displacement in the future.  This kind of BMW's high-rev V10 and AMG 6.3 NA will not appear again in mass-production car.

    Re: Getting old

    Nice!  I wanted a E63 wagon but they don't bring it to Australia, so ended up with the sedan.  I also had a C63 sedan.  I could give you my C63/E63 sedan comparison if you like?  Lol.  As for the exhaust, the C63 sedan is definitely louder.  The E63 is much more refined.

    Yes I do like to hear your comparison. The E63 feels faster,  but after the real world comparision, I was surprise to find out the C63 is actually faster than the E by a small margin. I am not sure if it's because the E63 is still relatively new and haven't fully run-in completely. AMG should increase the performance gap between the two cars. Similar to BMW M products,  M5 is always going to be faster than the M3 in staight line performance.
