Default C63AMG vs RS4 vs E92 M3

I was seeing the 10th episode of Top Gear's latest season for the millionth time today and they have a shootout between these three cars.

what car would you pick ?

Reasons dont really matter. For some people, it's all abt the passion and heart ruling the mind. For some people, it's all technical.

As for me, I would choose the C63 AMG. I have a soft spot for Mercedes and on top of that, the C63 has a certain character which I like. I personally find the M3 a little too German and too technical. The RS4 too suffers from the same flaws in my opinion.

I am not even going to consider practicality. The Merc wins that contest quite comfortably !!

None of the above , a E 46 BMW M3 CSL for me although from the current crop the BMW E 92 M3 will also do just fine, one with the M-DCT gearbox, black or space grey exteriors, red coloured interiors and Type 4 AC Schnitzer racing rims in Magic Black for me please

You said it man!! But that's why I wouldn't choose the E92. And Mercs piss me off to no end. The Audi it is !! Choice would be:

1. E46, then 2. RS4

I was way too inclined for M3 before C63 was launched. After hefty reviews came to a conclusion that BMW handles better in corners. But if I've an option for the 4th one in this category then I would go for Nissan GTR.

After I configure M3 and load all the options including navigation, dual clutch and stuff it comes to the same price as GTR!

I prefer the sensible and inconspicuous RS4 when it comes to sport sedans.
