Had my c63 for just under two weeks now and I absolutely love it. Mine has the performance pack, which I preferred to drive over the standard model (and it includes the essential LSD). Great brakes, great steering but the suspension is quite stiff. It's the engine that seals the deal though, it's immense. But thirsty, of course. And the fuel tank is quite small, but those are issues any evo driver should be used to!

The only aspect of the c63 I wasn't sure I could live with was the auto box, but its fine. It's not as responsive as say, the m3 dct but it's good enough in manual mode to have some fun, and is much smoother in auto mode. The e92 m3 was on my shortlist too, but whilst it's a sharper/more responsive drive when you're driving at 9/10ths, the amg is better the rest of the time (IMO). It just feels more of an 'event' to drive, I'm happy to just pootle around with the windows down and listen to the glorious v8

Keep the EVO and get the mighty E55. Mine is the Matt black car. street tires, 2x 60ft and on a hot day. trap got better in the afternoon 123 but traction was a big issue.

It finally stopped raining long enough to take some pics of mine (it's slashed it down every day since I picked it up ) so thought I'd add a few here.
