F82 vs w204 c63 amg

For anyone who has driven both of these, how would you compare them?

Everything from power, dynamics, track ability, weak and strong points, etc.

I find the W204 C63 such a good looking car and looks so damn mean, i have 0 idea how mercedes went and ruined all that with the next generation.

I was thinking of switching over and won't have a chance to really test drive one until i commit.

W204 is a generation behind F82, it's direct comparison is E92 M3, not F82 M4.

Pros for W204: amazing N/A engine with character, with awesome sound.
Cons: outdated tech, outdated transmission, outdated interior, without p31 package doesn't have lsd.

F82 is leaps ahead of W204 in terms of all the cons I listed above. If I was to choose 1, I would choose M4 for sure. But W204 is a great piece of machinery with that glorious N/A V8. It all depends what you want to experience, as these cars are very different.

Ruined as in lookswise? They didn't ruin the engine, handling, or gearbox with the newest gen, which still lags behind M dct but not like it did in W204.

Track performance of the new gen C63 is substantially better than W204.

You'd bounce from F82 to W204 due to engine obsession, that's it.

As far as dynamics and track-ability, a well-modded W204 is off the pace of an E9X with mild track prep.

Seems like a weird comparison seeing as how the two cars are of different generations.
