    How do you protect your cars from thiefs?

    For what it's worth, theft was a major consideration for me when I was deliberating getting my C63 (it's what spurred me to join this forum and start this thread). In the end, I decided to agree with those who said that you only live once and to enjoy things without living in fear and am not...

    Mercedes Confirms New SL Will Replace GT

    What are people's views on the latest generation Merc steering wheels? I think they're worse than the previous gen (below), but then I might be a little biased...

    So, AMG owners, how’s your Fuel Consumption?

    Yup.. it's what happens when you use it as your daily driver in London haha

    Pretty depressing...

    My New to me C63s Saloon

    She's a beaut for sure! I'd be interested to see what sort of fuel consumption you're getting and how long you can hold onto the tyres that came with the car! Although, such concerns disappear the moment you put your foot down...

    How economical is your AMG ??

    I can manage around 20 mpg if I'm lucky around town and about 25-28 on motorways. However, once I put it in Sport plus, it's a very different story... I'm just happy Shell have a loyalty scheme

    Beautiful car! Can I ask how much that cost?

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    I’m just not sure if a full wrap is really needed. I think I should be able to get away with front bumper, bonnet, A pillar, wings and doors which would shave off a grand or so!

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    Yeah the quote drops to £2500 + VAT if I do the front bumper, bonnet wings, mirrors and doors so may just go with that.

    I love my AMG - But what next?

    As we know we are headed towards an EV only future (in 2035 or earlier), surely now is the time to buy, enjoy and savour the ICE (and its unparalleled thrills, character and soundtrack) whilst we still can?! If not for the small matter of money, I’d be interested in getting the V12 S65 Coupe...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    How much did you pay for the ceramic PP if you don’t mind me asking? For full PPF wrap, I was quoted £3.6k plus VAT from Topaz and higher from Yiannimize (until they learned of Topaz’s price and dropped theirs).. I’ve got quotes from them in the first instance since they are known and...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    Thanks a lot everyone for your comments - I decided to go ahead with the purchase and buy the W205 C63 which is more stunning than I imagined in real life (and gives me the fizz just sitting on my driveway.. - will post pics to the appropriate thread in due course). Ultimately I think that theft...

    E63s W213 vs M3 F80

    Interesting and raises the question of how many miles minimum per year do people think should be covered in these performance cars to justify the cost?

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    I would be interested in the estate if I was looking for a larger car, but your earlier post about wishing for it to be stolen kinda put me off ;)! Thanks everyone for their suggestions - I will have a think and another test drive before making a decision. As @MikeInWimbledon correctly assumed...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    Interesting read - I live in the borough with the fifth highest number of car thefts per the article, and have CCTV footage of thieves trying to open my car, which is parked on the driveway, on 2/3 occasions (although never by force - just using the keyless cheat device or simply trying their...

    I was sold my car as an AMG but my friend is saying it is not?

    No, it makes it a four MATic! Sorry, I couldn't help myself...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    All the feedback so far has been really useful, so thanks for that! @AMGeed, I find myself agreeing with your positive (/optimistic!) mindset (albeit Dorset seems much less of a crime hotspot than London); I don't think I should let fear of a hypothetical situation hijack the decision to...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    Wow, that's sobering... Agreed that it depends on specific location; I live in a suburb in North London where it is commonplace for thieves to try their luck with unlocked cars / keyless hacking systems, but theft by force is unheard of.. Thanks - I have been looking into immobilizer products...

    Interested in a C63 but worried about theft!

    Hi all, I’m new to this great forum and, as mentioned in the name of thread, interested in buying a 2019 C63 Coupe. Aside from the obvious impracticalities and costs, browsing through the various threads has made me quite concerned that the vehicle may be stolen (through vulnerabilities of...
