The C63 is a terrific car, I know this has to be the perfect daily driver for me because of the following:

1) Its size
2) Terrific SLK like ( track ) handling and not a cruiser like the other AMG's.
3) Panaromic roof, great when the weather is cool and terrific
4) Power it has a strong engine and with its lower weight, its great for tuning and improving the power to around 500 +
5) Price is decent and it will be fairly limited over here as more people go for the larger E-class
6) I love C-class in generals, its more of a sportier car than the E in general
7) Its a new car, will last for around 7 more years max until the new one comes out
8) 4GB hard disk to store music + ipod integration, mp3 compatible command
9) LSD and very large breaks
10) Sport seats that are gripping and close to a black series as it can get.

If I had one, I think it will match the SLK nicely side by side.
