The sound of the exhaust, the engine, and the look. I like it. It's kind of suddle, but when you give it some gas, everyone knows you mean business.
So...Why used C63?
"This is a question for people who bought C63 used and using C63 as only car. I see used C63 goes for around 45k - 65k depending on model years, but with that price range you can buy other luxury performance cars like: M5, E63, S63, S6, S8... These cars were more expensive when it was new, but they depreciate much faster and they are in the pretty similar price territory with used C63...So, why did you guys went for C63 instead of other cars I listed? Other cars I listed have same 4 doors, much better interior and used better materials than C63 and performance is great also. "
How much are they in Aus? --Edit: Never mind. Just saw $265,000.00. That's obscene and offensive.
C63 BS for 172k
"And another smart person trying to make profit. I guess it's ok to give a link since sixspeed is owned by IB too."
Congrats on C63. I had an Evo 8 RS. I loved it. Man was that car fun, until I got the insurance bill every month. I was 23 and living in a large city. Scary expensive to insure! I do regret selling it though. Every time you get on a highway with the Evo, it felt like you were on the BEST ride at the amusement park.
Picked up a C63 the other day
"Hello, Sunday I took delivery of a CPO 2009 C63 in Steel Gray / Black interior. The car has 40,000 miles on it and is in excellent condition. I must say this car is a hoot to drive. I come from Japanese cars but I've owned a BMW 3 series and currently own a '00 ML 430 as the family/tow vehicle for my race car. My previous car was a 400hp Evo that ran on E85. The wife hated driving this car with the big cams, cold start issues with E85, Manual, etc. Buying the C63 to replace the evo was my compromise . I think I'm the one who one in this deal! Here is the only pic I have of her so far. I must say I'm a little disappointed with the COMMAND system. Does not interface well for iPhones (contacts, bluetooth streaming, charging). I've ordered a few devices to get around this. I'm ..."

C63 Black Series vs Viper ACR
"So what do you guys think? Which will win, both are priced similarly. Both are road legal track cars. Both have 2 seats only."
Tune it. I'm good with stock, but if you have the urge, you'll just keep asking yourself "what if?" I would just make sure to have it done by someone wih a proven track record with these cars.
Am I crazy to want a tune if.....
"I love this car but unlike some lucky people here it is the top of what I can afford and not the bottom. When I originally got a C I said that before I got a tune I would get an LSD to put the power to the ground better, and a brake upgrade to stop it better. Then I totalled that car. Now I have one with a P30 pack, so both those things are done for me. So now the itch for a tune has come back. My last car was a 335 and I put a JuiceBox 3 in there so I know how a tune can really wake a car up and I also know about warranty ramifications. I can't help but wonder if I'm a bit nuts cos a) I live in the city b) this car has issues with hooking up the power it currently has and we all have the baldies to prove it. So. Has anyone tuned and regretted it for any reason? Or perhaps thought ..."
Yes, I did see that. But it doesn't feel like the brakes. I will take it in and see what's what. Maybe a grease and go.
Knock when accelerating?
"Wierd and intermittent, but I release the brakes and hear a boing/knock when I accelerate from a stop. Coincides with moving forward and coming from the front? (Only once) Tranny, something need grease in a linkage? I hate going back to the dealership for a 3rd time since buying it a month ago. 09' C63 21K miles. "

C63 Longest Drift
"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_WXDwEigekI I know this is old, but I thought it would be interesting. also could somebody tell me the song they used in this video ??"
You'd have to think that people in an MB forum would be intelligent and have resources at their disposal. Why would you throw gas on this fire? Not to bright, but then again, I'm seeing a pattern.
NASCAR also advocates Ethanol fuels too. They can suck it! What I wouldn't give for some E-free gas in my liberal state.
What brand of fuel
"I just bought a 2008 C300 4matic Sport with 9800 miles on it. The nearest gas station is a WaWa- the name brands are a few miles away, and since I live in the Jersey Shore,the name brands jack up their prices to bleed the tourists. I have been using WaWa gas for the last 3 tankfuls,and my car runs fine on it. Does anyone know of any reasons why i should stay away from WaWa gas?"
Hey pot! Called to tell ya you're black (is Kettle)

I Highly Reccomend the Chrome Door Handle Inserts on a white c-class
"WOW! Added them today after picking up a set of OEM chrome inserts at fletcher jones for $70 bucks A beeatch to install, but dang they look sweet... really give the car a nice accent... when i had one side on and the other wasnt done yet, i compared the two sides(chromed and unchromed) and i cant believe how boring and plain the non chrome side looked compared to the other side... will post pics soon once i get my quad exaust and diffuser installed"
Do you even use the front tire?
I wouldn't want them to be fired. I would still take the car and ask for a 10k mile service to call it even. Heavy reprimand yes, but it's people just being people and having fun in something they will probably never own. I really don't think it's criminal. The only thing they are guilty of is not knowing how to shift. Mercedes driving school should be required.
I go without. MB is one of the few cars that I have always thought looks better without. All of the other cars I have owned had tint. But I like the glass on the Merc. It has a bluish hue to it. Not sure if it's just my crappy eyes, but I like the look.
To tint or not to tint. That is the question.
"Anybody decide NOT to tint and prefer that look over tint?? Anybody think tint makes the car look better??"
could've done a LOT better with the chick....yuck
so much for break in
Whoa!!--that is really off. You get what you pay for, but damn.
