    quite a lot of valve/tappet noise when it's idling - is that normal for this engine ? can't hear it inside the car, just when you open the window or are standing outside. not a big deal, just wondered.

    otherwise it's great - I swapped out of a 2013 C63 6.2 for this below and I am not feeling short changed at all !

    Yes it does sound like this at idle, almost diesel like. Sounds like a big truck engine when pulling away too...

    Your car looks great as an estate in that colour.

    thanks Luke and Harry - good to know

    yes I like Cavansite blue, my C63 was the same colour - my Cayman GT4 is dark blue metallic which is a similar shade.

    Just to agree with the others, nice car, nice colour.

    Oh and yes, it does sound like a sewing machine on tickover, though nice anywhere above it.

    thanks, very fortunate to have a few toys still - E63 makes a delightful daily driver.

    As others have already said, they all have a gentle clatter from the top end on idle. You only hear it if you're outside the car, but it's even more clattery with the bonnet open! Nothing to worry about :thumb:
