After Break In Period - New Video

Finally got to push it past 4,000 rpms. Once done the fan on the car ran for about 10 minutes.

Video is here:

I find that slightly annoying. Do all high-performance cars do this, or is this specific to current AMG's? Specific to C63S?

A few members reported that the fan gets stupidly loud, even with the engine turned off.

335d xDrive, C63S on order
I think it's to cool the turbos which probably run hotter than normal because of being located inside the V of the engine.

Heard this after a test drive. It's not loud but is noticeable.

I think any car with turbos especially ones mounted in the top of the motor like MB and BMW do, is going to have this. They are placed in such a hot area to begin with. But I have no heard any issues with BMW's placement of the turbos, and they have been doing this longer than MB has.

I had a Honda Prelude that used to have the fan run every time I shut the car off. It's no big deal.

Compared to the 507, the car is noisier in day to day driving as it's a 4.0 litre block, versus the 6.3. But when you hit the gas hard and the turbos are really kicking in I feel the car is then quieter than the 507. The 507 would come to life, but only when you mashed the gas pedal. Otherwise it just purred with no effort during day to day driving. The new engine is more interesting during normally driving.
