I think it's a 2017. I don't believe they started production on 2018 either.

Like the car, awesome engine. Can't get past how the back half of the car looks like a current generation Honda Accord coupe. Compare the C pillars on the two cars... it's pretty funny. In my opinion, the sedan is the way to go.

Funny! I have the complete opposite opinion. think the sedan looks far too pedestrian and if I were in the market for a coupé, the C63S coupé would've taken my money over the M4. But the M3 sedan > C63S sedan IMO.

This is, of course, strictly in terms of looks.

Agree with you Sir, The coupe looks a monster in real life and the sedan which i test drove many times is great but very generic compare to this!

I agree. I can't get past the rear view on the coupe or convertible (or the shitty leases). If I were interested in purchasing a sedan, I'd have at or near the top of my list. But since I'd rather lease a coupe (or maybe a convertible next time), I probably won't even look at one, as great as they sound.

This. I just don't like the styling at all of the coupe really. It just doesn't do it for me. To each his own I guess but the whole thing looks very generic to me and doesn't look special.

It has zero presence IMO.

Not knocking it, just my opinion. That engine though!!

The coupe looks miles better than the sedan. I saw a white convertible and it is a stunner. What stick out for me also was how wide it appears from the rear.

Good looking car overall, but I think it may have the same problem as the M4 with an overly elongated rear fender. And the lines of the car are too feminine.

I agree with this 100%. I would never consider the C63 sedan as I think the M3 looks so much better. The C63 coupe on the other hand looks great in my eyes and I personally think it looks better than the M4.

I just received my C63S coupe on Monday and I handed back my M3 lease yesterday. I like almost everything about the Mercedes. The engine, sound and interior are superb. On the other hand, the stereo sucks and the comand system seems inferior to the idrive. I love how it drives; comfortable, fast, effortless

Congrats the color is Diamond White? probably the best color for the coupe!

I agree with you the command online sucks and the stereo on the AMG is terrible and that gear shift on the steering wheel I thought they will put the one from the AMG GT instead they didnt, that touch pad sucks too

Lol, the gear shifter is weird indeed.

My color is actually Polar white (non metallic). They had one on the lot that I got to look at before I placed the order for mine and I really liked it. My M3 was mineral white.

I'm going to put a black rear spoiler on it. I ordered mine with the night package and it's silly that it doesn't also include a black rear spoiler

I saw the configurator they are charging separately for the black spoiler!

Why did u choose that over the Diamond white? which i find is the best color

I probably would have considered this car if it wasn't so heavy and more track focused. I've seen several around, murdered out, and they look sinister and mean on the road!

i think if you discount the looks, its an amazing car... I just dont see how people like the grand touring wagon like coupe style nowadays... the E92 M3 was the definition of a beautiful coupe, after that, the asthetics dept fell way down hill

I thought it looked great in Polar white as long as there's enough black bits to break up all the whiteness. I actually went to the dealership to compare colors... it was overcast on that day and perhaps I would have chosen differently on a sunny day ;-)
