Arrow Fifth Gear Comparison: BMW E92 M3 Comp Package vs. Mercedes C63 AMG Perf Pkg Plus

Quote:
The eternal comparison between a BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG is back. The fellows over at Fifth Gear have decided to put head-to-head BMWs M3 Coupe with Competition Package and the C63 AMG with Performance Package from Mercedes.

The usual flaming war between fans is expected, so be prepared for strong opinions on both sides. But before jumping into the video review, lets have a look at the technical specs of the two sporty cars tested.

The M3 is equipped with the Competition Package that brings many cosmetic changes to the already aggressive M3. Along with the visual improvements, the Competition Package further enhances the highly responsive chassis by installing a 10mm lower suspension and 19 wheels with greater offset for a wider track. Remapped Electronic Damping Control and Dynamic Stability Control systems, turns the M3 with Competition Package in one of the best handling production M cars ever built.

The M3 is powered by the S65B40 engine, a naturally aspirated, high revving 4-liter V8 (based on the S85B50 5-liter V10 that powers the E60/E61 M5 and the E63/E64 M6 to date) delivering 414 horsepower (309 kW; 420 PS) at 8,300 rpm and peak torque of 400 Nm (300 lb-ft) at 3,900 rpm, which represents a power increase of 22% over the previous generation E46 M3.

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG with Performance Package Plus increases output by 30 hp to 487 hp. The package also includes AMG high-performance braking system featuring composite technology on the front axle and an AMG performance steering wheel in nappa leather/Alcantara.

With the Performance Package Plus, the C 63 AMG accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.4 seconds and 0 to 200 km/h in 13.9 seconds. The top speed is 250 km/h (electronically limited).

The result is somewhat expected. The M3 proves to be a better competitor on track and while cornering, while the C63 AMG takes the win on a straightline.

Lets have a look.

justin330i is an unknown quantity at this point
Great Vid. I guess it really depends on what you want...straight line performance or lower track times. Question: Can you get the competition package EDC/DSC maps for a non-competition package based M3? I own an E90 M3 but would like the competition maps.

I would rather have the C63, only because it is ridiculous and fun.
