That thing sounded insane! You gotta love how the owner keeps the backseats down just to basque in the insanity a little bit more. I need to try that.

Nice C63 and nice mods, the sound is great.
Anyone noticed that the owner wrote in the comments section that the engine hydro-locked after the video shot due to faulty injector... engine dead... sounds terrible!

I was wondering about that and haven't heard of this before. I guess as a potential ex-press car it might have had a hard start to life but seems like the owner balanced that out with some care. Consequences of the car being driven too hard over it's life so far, or one-off failure? I'm not sure but sad to hear, and I hope the owner pipes up on here and reveals plans to get it back up and running.

i can't seem to find that post now, but when I read it last night I'm pretty sure it was a different name then the guy who is actually the owner. I'm thinking it might have just been a hater. Never heard of injector issues on this car before.

sage sokol it's not a bad idea to do as it is a very expensive repair to do if they fail.. Unfortunately for me one of my injectors failed few months after this recording and hydrolocked the cylinder causing some damage to engine block.. So i ended up trading her in

****!!! That's a bad one, you don't heard that happening to often.

I have a 335i and they are known a bit more for leaking injectors, but most people catch it before it destroys the engine, usually you get some codes and misfires/rich errors etc as it starts to leak. Too bad it ended badly!

Easiest and best mod you can do. That's the only way I drive now lol.

Not a fan of the glass-pack exhaust sounds.
Good to see the C63 get some press though.

I thought it was funny that the owner seemed to think that the car was babied since it was a demo car. Matt blind-sided him when he laughed and said, "you brave man".

Exactly. I too was like what? How is that a car that's babied?

Ya relentlessly thrashed for the first 4k (breaking it in) and then babied for the next 24k after the damage was done!

Watched the vid. That owner was awkward AF.

Seemed a little optomistic about its performance and hp too. 550 bhp and 3.6 0-60? Not that 0-60 is a good measure of anything other than grip off the line. And "track suspension" said about 37 times. Funny because other companies like porsche and even MB allow you to adjust actual track suspensions.

loungn14 03-16-2017 09:37 AM

lol too funny

I had just watched it as always checking out anything amg, and did a double take when he said it was EC tuned

Its now a running joke that its euro-who again?

LOL

tpliquid 03-16-2017 11:25 AM

the suspension was 1.5 inches lower than standard c63. thats wat he said. typical douchebag amg owner who prolly never everworked on his own car ever

Jasonoff 03-16-2017 12:05 PM

Was waiting for the white smoke plume mid shoot...

Oh this 2009 has a HB problem?

C SEXY 3 03-16-2017 03:25 PM
