Ok well iv been looking low and high for a nice example of a C63. What are your thoughts on this one?


Its got good history, had the gearbox service done at 34k miles and has just recently had another major service at Mercedes including all the spark plugs changed and the ATF changed once more. The guy has had it 3 years and the car has within the past two years had the discs and pads replaced.

Its had 5 former keepers which im thinking is a tad high. Ideally I wanted a 2-3 owner car but I guess these cars can go through a number of owners in a short period of time so not too alarming. I can have thee car for £23800 and he wont budge from that. The car does need two rear tyres and there is a small leak from the main rear seal and should I get that done its about a £700 job at a dealer.

Again the car has Full Mercedes history and appears to be looked after. Prices are all over the place but this looks a nice example. What are peoples thoughts?
 
Looks nice. Prices are mad at the moment but you can’t do anything about that. I’d have to de-black everything myself but that’s only personal taste. Looks like you’ve done your homework on this one - good luck!
 
Didn’t realise prices are this high. Mines a better spec which I was going to sell but changed my mind. Maybe I should think about it again.
 
Or does this PPP version look a better buy? A little bit more expensive but maybe worth it?

 
All other things being equal, I would go for a PPP car for more money, myself. But it depends also if you prefer a coupe And also what you think of the interior colour scheme of the PPP car. From the pix the coupe does look marginally better condition but that may be wrong.
I think you should be able to get a lower mileage car for this kind of money...if that's important to you.
good luck!

It’s a tough one. Most the time I think the saloon actually looks better in AMG form than the coupe….I’m a little torn. Both look nice examples I guess so we shall see what is what
 
I'd go ppp car over standard all day long not sure on the interior though but both look nice cars and neither have an LSD which is a must hopefully you will have better luck this time round not like the last 1 you had 👍
 
Defo get a PPP car neither of the above two are as tidy as the estate, set that as your benchmark.

Yeah I hope so mate. The history on both these cars look decent and that’s what I’m going on now. Saloon or coupe though? Hmmmm decisions

Interior is a bit garish on that.
Whichever you go for check the air conditioning works ok (common failure and an expensive fix) and also be prepared for cracking alloy problems on the 19s unless you’re very careful when driving.
For me, I think the earlier one you posted looks a better option than this one.
 
Well made the decision yesterday to leave a deposit on a 2015 F80 M3 instead. Buying it from a main dealer with twelve months warranty and only two former keepers.

As much as I love the W204 C63, prices are absolutely all over the place at the moment. Similar cars going from between £23k and £30k so it left me thinking it was a bit of a minefield.

I will own one again in the future when prices even out a little but always liked the look and performance of the F80 M3 so looking forward to trying it out.
