How many of you guys actually daily your C63?

It seems many people don't daily their car or only drive on the weekends or nice days and whatnot. Or it seems if you do daily it the commute is very short. I had initially intended to do that myself when I bought my car back in June with about 30k miles but now I just hit 40k.

I am curious are there any other people like me that daily their C63? I am putting about 3k miles a month and drive all over long island, NYC, nj, ct.

Weekender only. I don't feel the need for it to bake in the sun all day while I'm at the office...thus the car looks like the day I bought it and I still get excited to drive it.

I daily mine but luckily I live 1.5 miles away from work.

I put on about 5-6k per year thanks to the closeness of work.

Long trips we take my wife's car in general because its more comfortable (she hates the bumpiness of the C63)

Daily mine. Average about 8-9k miles a year since buying it 2 years ago. I think it has around 107k on the odometer now

I drive mine daily. About 10 miles per day.
Sometimes I drive the longer route to work just so that I warm up the engine more and gets a spirited short sprint.
Done 6.5K miles since I got mine a year ago.

I absolutely daily mine. I bought the car to drive it and use it. I have no intention of saving the car for the next owner.

Weekend car mostly. I have a longer commute in the bay area traffic so taking the beast does not make sense in heavy traffic.
on the weekends, hell yes, every damn time.

Mines been a daily for the last 3 years. I got it with 13k and after two years it was about 50k. Now that I am back on the mainland this will probably be the first year I drive it less than 10k.

so true. I never understand the mentality of buying a nice car...and then keeping the miles down.

I daily my E63 to work, shopping, long drives, fast drives...everything. It's a brilliant car that ticks all the boxes. If it had a proper manual transmission, damn it would be the complete car.

Mine is my daily/winter car - have a convertible I drive on nice days and in the summer, so technically I drive mine mostly on rainy days and all winter (should be a terrible winter car, but have snows for it!)

DD my C63.

Summer and winter. With a set of winter tires the C63 is very easy to drive in the snow. For days where the snow is deeper than the front lip I take the Jeep or Subaru.

I daily drive mine as well. 10k miles a year. It is infinitely better as a dd than my Evo ever was. Man that thing was a box of rattles...was supreme in the winter months though.

I would drive it more during the week but I literally drive to the office, start at 7 am, then leave at 7pm and drive home. The poor car would just melt in the sun and outdoors all day getting door dings but soccer moms driving suburbans and having the Carbon Fiber turn yellow.

I wish I could DD or we had covered parking....

I learned back in 1987 that if I was going to spend the money on a Mercedes it would probably be a poor ROI to baby it and make it a garage queen. The firs car was a 300E 3L
SOHC I6.
In 1994 I got an E300 3.2L DOHC I6. I got it at 33000km and it left 8 yr later pretty pristine with 300,000 km on the odometer.
There have been 9 other cars since including 5 in the last two years while I sorted out living and parking space. 6 days ago I got a 2013 C63 AMG with the performance package, 19" offset wheels and a list of options that runs to 3 pages.
Daily driver? You betcha!

Daily drive it, and drive through out the day for work but I am in a reasonably small area. As a result I only put about 1000kms (600 miles) on it per month. I would gladly drive it more, as that would mean I was getting more highway miles. And I WANT to drive it more.

Somebody has to say it.....

Actually, what I said does not sense because I DD a 6 MT Audi in heavy traffic constantly changing from 1st to 2nd gear and back
why I dont take the C63 is because I am not too keen to park it in a public parking near my workplace.
