Clarkson: head to head in the C63 AMG Black and M3 GTS
The Merc C63 Black and BMW M3 GTS both have a hardcore brief, but which is better?

Yes, the ride in the Mercedes is abysmal - the BMW is surprisingly compliant - but the other problems that blight my CLK (the Zippo fuel tank, the seatbelt clips in the bucket of the seat itself, and so on) have all been addressed.
You really could use the Mercedes every day but, if you choose to do this, I must give you one word of warning. Do not ever use full throttle unless a) it's bone dry and b) you are already doing 90mph. If you do, you will have a crash.
