That's not a problem, any 1600kg car can smoke a pair of tyres with 300hp and above (except 4WD perhaps) IF THE OWNER'S RETARDED ENOUGH.

Porsche's 3.6 liter > Merc's 6.3 liter <- RETARDED DISPLACEMENT

It's only a problem if you go around every corner sideways at full power.

eventually one will turn off the TC for some fun, no one will be able to resist. still the tyres wont last for a very long time.

however i think that the other cars are kinder on their tyres, especially due to the fact that there is less torque and weight.

i'm pretty sure that anyone who drives that mercedes will be itching to turn of the TC, even if they own it.

Owners of the C63 AMG won't be driving the car Clarkson-style for long periods of time, if at all.

(The same can be said for the traction control)

Either the M3 or C63.

I'll buy both and use the C as a daily driver and the M3 as a track toy.

M3 for sure.

I was reading a magazine we get in australia called the Open Road & its quite Accurate on things and they had M3 was number 1 in its class and in 2nd place was the RS4 and so on...

So Yes i'd imagain the M3 in 1st place then the RS4 and then the MERC.

Dont get me wrong they are all imcrediable car and btw if i had a choice to buy any of the 3 it would most probably be the RS4.

M3's are everywhere and Merc's are just another Merc you rarely see RS4 in sydney.

C63 AMG has rear lights that help push the car down... for that alone, I'd get it!
