    How does the S model make extra power over the non S model? Is it software only or larger turbos etc? Regardless if I was In your position i would 100% spec the S version. If u are spending over 70K already then really another 5K isn't a huge Amount. Without a doubt an S version will be worth more than a non S version in the future. Also if the S comes stock with those AMG buckets then it works out really well. Why don't u go for an S and spec the carbon trim. Will be worth it when u have the car, trust me..

    Interestingly I've been given the option to take a S model in blue (my second colour choice) sitting in stock. Given the price difference, I expected the monthly payments on PCP to be significantly higher. To my surprise, on a 2 year PCP, the S model adds only £7 to the payments vs. a non S model over 4 years. This is down to the strong future value of the S model (£43K in 2 years). I didn't expect it to come out this way but just goes to show - different configurations/options can really make a big difference to the future value and in turn, not impact the finance payments as much as you might think.

    The difference between the two models is £6,910 for the extra outlay you get the following on the S variant -
    A gain of 34 bhp
    Electronic diff as opposed to a manual diff
    Red calipers
    Performance seats
    Grey seat belts as opposed to black
    Dinamica/leather steering wheel as opposed to leather
    19" alloys as opposed to 18"
    Worth it ?
    That's a lot of money for a marginal difference, a friend has ordered the non s model and will be getting his calipers painted red and the dealer will be sticking an S badge on the car from new.

    That one
    The only thing you can compare the value differences to is the W212 E63 and the E63S, and there's at least £5k if not more between those as second hand cars.

    Get the 'S' in Brillant Blue. Look after it, keep it tidy, DON'T kerb the wheels. Treat it like a baby.

    THEN give me a phone in 2 years! :bannana:

    That was my experience when I was in the market earlier this year. The E63S is very rare, plus it was priced at a £10k premium over the standard car, so a £5k premium on a (say) 2 - 3 year old example is pretty much in line with the additional price.

    Thats interesting. The Finance guy said its roughly £20 a month extra for every £1000 increase. so 5.5k should be around £110 extra a month.

    My spec which came to 68.8K before discount.

    Selenite
    Premium pack
    Night Pack
    Driver Asst - I'm getting on bit :) :)
    Performance seats - gorgeous
    360 camera
    19" wheels

    The way I looked at it was that, the moment my figures got close to the 80K
    mark, then I might as well then start looking at an AMG GT or a used GTS.

    Either way , I'm sure you will be happy with your choice.

    What's the difference John? The 'S' badge on your E63 is also stuck on (albeit at the factory) :D

    It's the little touches which make the difference and tbh when spending big money buying a new car 6K isn't much to for a better spec and those beautiful seats. Adding the S badge to a non S is tacky even if MB are doing it for him.

    Personally I'd take the blue S already in stock and you won't regret it. It's a nice colour and u can have it immediately, if not spec an S exactly how u want and wait

    Because a C63 isn't a C63S.

    (My post was making the point that all badges on all cars are simply stuck on)


    Another bad joke. I must try harder.

    There are also some cosmetic differences on the S version:

    There is a black front splitter instead of body coloured, chrome side skirts and a chrome trim on the rear diffuser.

    I can't decide if I like these or not...

    No, it's at a dealer close to me in Hertfordshire. Just here right now waiting for the sales guy.

    The spec is what I want except for the lack of privacy glass. I'm guessing it shouldn't be an issue to have this done after market though.

    Given I have an order elsewhere with a finance agreement approved in principle, do I need to cancel that first before putting the new one through does anyone know? I'm thinking it might flag with MBFS if I apply for finance on a second vehicle...

    They can put a note on the proposal to say that that proposal will be in replacement of the other
