    Spent a wet day at the Ring yesterday - was pleasantly surprised to see the Ring driving academy (not the AMG one) are now using C63S coupes. Look pretty cool with the Edition 1 graphics although they are not Edition 1 cars - rather they are very highly equipped S coupes with ceramics and carbon packs.

    One thing I did confirm is the Edition 1 definitely has wider side sill extensions than the standard car (along with bigger rear spoiler, front splitter and rear valance) - I wasn't sure until I saw the S up close.

    Did you take one out?

    What was your wet time on the TF? I managed about 13mins on my 1st lap (v wet)

    No, I was there in my M3 as it was a track day not TF and I didn't time myself as I didn't like it in the wet - pretty slippery out there so only did 4 laps all day. In the dry I have done 8:07.

    8:07 is really good. What BHP is your M3 putting out?

    It's an e46 and was stock then, about 325bhp iirc on a dyno - since fitted a carbon airbox and it's now 347bhp. Guy I was with there went round in 7:47 in his z4m coupe earlier this month!
