I have a BMW 340i with M Performance exhaust, and it pops and crackles so easy, when ever you want. Just put it in S or S+.

All I can say openly is, it's definitely being looked at, and not to panic!

Certainly don't be discouraged from buying this incredible car as I know it will be resolved and then you'll be crying if you waited. It's still epic now, just waiting for the cherry on top.

There is no turning back rocken. The car is produced, and in trasportation from South Ńfrica to Europe.

And i would buy the same car even if didn t pop. But AMG should pay more atention to what they promise and to what they really deliver. Because sound is important, and they even tell you that now you have the Performance exhaust standard!!!

So they shouldn t allow this Kind of Mess to happen.

thanks for your effort in this matter!!! I am sure it Will help us all.

Just an anecdote, I've been noticing a lot more pops with the car now at 3000mi. Still not quite like roken's video, but at normal op temps, revving in S+ or throttle past 4.5K makes some real nice noise

My SA (which has been very informative and helpful since I ordered the car) confirmed that if I take the car in for 1700 mile service (I have ~ 400 miles left; should take it in sometime next week), they will re-tune the car which will unlock some additional features such as Launch Control as well as better overall output. I'm not 100% sure with these info until I take the car in for the first service. I'll keep you posted once I have further info.

@b3ns.c63s.amg

iím not sure how ďinformativeĒ he is if he's giving misinformation.
the only thing done at 2000 miles is change the diff oil.
Launch control is there from the beginning.
the break in is 1000 miles . Just read the manual.
maybe yours is behind on the software but other than that Iím not aware of any 2000 mile upgrade.

Finally took the car to some technical roads today.

I must withdraw what I said earlier in this thread. When driven HARD in full S+, the car bangs and pops like crazy and frequently. I'll go through my dashcam footage and see if it picked up any of the noise.

Hmm. You'll see how good the press Wagon I'm reviewing sounds in the video next week, but unfortunately still not correct. There are some very specific areas that I would ask you:

Does it bang or pop at all specifically when downshifting? When revving, does it continue to bang indefinitely or stop after 4/5 revs?

If the answer is no to both, then yes it still sounds good, but it's not in line with other AMGs or how it is supposed to be. The pull of all modern AMGs is not having to drive "hard" all the time to play the musical instrument the way you want.

2019 AMG C63S
Just dropped off the car for dif oil change at my local dealer. There will only be a simple oil change and nothing special

I guess we either have to wait for AMG to step in with a software update or I'm going to delete resonator. My service advisor said if there's any updates, it can be done by owner as well...

I took the car to one of the closest roads I live by which lets you use all the HP and I notices some pops while I was on auto gear shifting + Race Mode when letting go of the throttle and coming back to it. I'll try to place few camera's next time and share my experience.

You're right, there's only diff oil change at that milage.
Launch control is also there but since I tried to take it easy on diff (before the first diff oil change), I never tried it and per manual, this is only available after the break-in period (<1000 miles).

Bangs and pops happen during downshifts but not frequently. Throttle is the main instigator for those. Also no indefinite bangs when revving, they stop inexplicably.

Good to know that the sound is supposed to be even better than this. Looking forward to a software update.

I think so as well. MB can be as slow as molasses in January on things like this. Will be interesting to see if this is sorted for MY 2020. I'm considering ordering a 2020 coupe. At this point I'm going to wait and see how this all shakes out.

Quick one to you guys getting diff oil changes at 3000km on the new cars: this is NO LONGER required!! It should stay as is for the first three years, this changed after later 2018 build cars.

Please check with your retailer, AMG will have sent them notification.


No update on the exhaust yet, but I hope to hear soon!

My dealer actually called me yesterday and told me one of his customer called and complained about the exhaust note on his '19 being too quiet. He asked me if I noticed anything similar...tbh I haven't been driving my car too hard and has kept everything in Comfort so I couldn't tell him anything.

Thanks, I will. Was just about to make the appointment for that very service (and bring up the exhaust note issue, too)

yep, exactly. Reading the manual really helps with newer cars. With so many features, itís almost impossible not to bury things deep in menus etc...
the thing I forgot to say was that race mode is available from day one, or in this case mile one.
i never tried launch during break in either.
i used it just to see it turn on and hear it for a minute when I was at about 200 miles.track pace also worked and the telemetry was there.
i didnt try launch mode until about 1025 miles haha... had to wait until i was off the highway on a trip or it would have been at 1001!
also- thanks for the new info I justbread about the diff gear oil not being needed to change at 2k miles. I was just getting ready to do that.

I purchased my 2019 C63 at the end of March, and they have emailed me the following:

Yep my manual says it too, but Iíve confirmed direct with AMG that it is no longer required despite this being in the manual; Europe/UK anyway. Believe me I argued, but was shown a release I couldnít argue with at dealer, then AMG Germany confirmed too. Canít see any harm in doing it anyway, so make your own enquires.

On topic: Iíve just put out a video of the 2019 C63S Wagon, you can compare the exhaust note vs the coupe I tested last year, really is markedly different, only bangs coming off throttle. Hope to have some update this week from Affalterbach.

They're both as bad as each other! Both new facelifts.

Thank you for driving this forward for us, hopefully we can get acknowledgment of an issue and some notification of a pending resolution.

Fantastic video. RBR convinced me to pass on the RS5 and get the C63S. Absolutely love the car.

Thanks for getting after AMG regarding the exhaust. Seriously, thank you! I drove next to a RS3 that poped and banged more than my facelift! Wtf!
