    Re: Picked up my C63 AMG Coupe PP

    Update on my C63 experience:

    1. Car is real fun but traction issues can be annoying at times, driving with ESP completely turned off on public streets scares the sh.t out of me (and of others for that matter... ), not recommended.

    2. The exhaust/engine sound is just pure heaven. I just can't get enough of it, the sound alone is half of the fun with this car.

    3. I started to enjoy oversteer, I actually catch myself throwing a car through a curve to provoke oversteer but I can't do that very often (public streets, not recommended). 

    4. The car has amazing power and whenever I turn the ESP sport handling mode on, I get reminded of it.

    5. Car feels lighter than it is but it still lacks the super direct steering and throttle response feel of my former Carrera GTS Cab, I just realized that. Still the sportiest Mercedes I ever drove, amazing for so "little" money.

    6. Everybody seems to like this car, no negative comments from anybody, which is something new for me. 

    7. The perfect daily driver: Enough and comfortable room for four persons (kids love the rear), a huge trunk for such a car, fuel consumption is around 18 l / 100 km...if I don't drive on the Autobahn. Then it goes over 21 l / 100 km.

    A last word: I still can't believe that the C63 AMG Coupe PP is street legal in Germany. The exhaust sound is so loud. When I have my windows and the sunroof open, over 3000 rpm, hell breaks loose and people on the sidewalk, even in a wider distance, turn their heads. Unbelievable. This is usually the only moment I get negative reactions from people...usually the typical middle finger.  Btw: Only the SLS and the C63 sound that loud, the other AMG models are a notch quieter, incl. the older N/A E63 and CLS 63 AMG.

    Christian,

    Now, you have great garage which makes sense for me. Your car choices of C63 Coupe, Panamera Turbo S and X5 M are great kiss

    Re: Picked up my C63 AMG Coupe PP

    Thanks, Onur. A 991 GT3 RS, GT2 RS or maybe a Turbo would fit in-between quite nicely but A. I still have to earn the money and B. I have no more room in my garage...4 cars at max. 

    I really want a "true" sports car from Porsche (sorry, Ferrari is just too flashy for my neighborhood) but like I said many times before, I can't afford a garage queen anymore. Unless of course I wouldn't care about cost but I'm not there yet.

    Even for those who don't like Mercedes too much, the C63 AMG Coupe is a very nice ride. Not the typical Benz people  would expect... indecision

    Re: Picked up my C63 AMG Coupe PP

    Christian,

    I think 3 cars are enough to make a garage queen ;)

    My Italia will be driven hopefully every weekend but will rest in the garage under its red satin car cover on the weekdays. I ordered myself a VW CC 1.4 TSI (to replace my E60 520d) so this car will be a cheap DD (1/12 price of the italia in Turkey) and I keep low profile when it is needed. My wife has an Audi A1 which is her first car. I would love to get her a new upcoming Cayman but with our taxes it costs more than 120k euro which means a lot when you add this over mu italia. So I'm waiting for the new Audi TT replacement for her.

    You see, even with 3 cars, you can still have a garage queen smiley

    was just doing that this morning Smiley

    the cool thing about the c63 that you can do low speed drifts due to the torque and flimsy rear wheels.

    and yes, traction is a real issue....but maybe we are oversensitive being 911 drivers.

    Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... That's what gets you.
