Mercedes-Benz C63: Advice on buying used model

Answered by CarsGuide 3 May 2019

The C63 is a good car worth buying, if it hasn’t been thrashed and had a good record of regular servicing. With that sort of mileage on it you should be able to enjoy many years of reliable and fun motoring in the future. Costs of servicing can be high if you used a dealer, but you can reduce the cost by going to an independent Mercedes-Benz specialist mechanic.

Mercedes-Benz C63 vs Porsche Cayman GT4

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Jun 2017

Obviously you're in the market for a performance drive, and the biggest difference between your preferences is seats. Specifically, just two in the Porsche. So, despite the fact the Cayman has a pretty handy boot in the nose, it's never going to be as practical as a C-Class sedan. The 6.2-litre V8 in the (W204) C63 is a naturally aspirated dream. The sound and fury of 372kW/620Nm (in the Edition 507) driving the rear wheels is a rare pleasure, and on the right road, its balance and mid-range punch are sublime. The current (W205-based) C63 S's 4.0-litre turbo V8 just pips it on outputs (375kW/700Nm), but the biggest difference with that unit's forced induction is that all that torque is available from just 1750rpm. The new chassis is brilliant, and is even quicker point-to-point than the Edition 507. Then there's the Cayman. Although we've somehow missed seat time in the GT4, experience with previous ‘special' models, including the (881) Cayman R and GTS point to this being the purest (or purist's?) choice. The 3.4-litre atmo R produces 243kW/370Nm, the GTS 250kW/380Nm, and the 3.8-litre GT4 is at 283kW/420Nm. The Cayman's mid-engine layout, and ideal weight distribution makes it one of the most precise and agile sports cars on the planet. So if you can live with just the two seats (that aren't exactly easy to get in and out of), it's our pick in terms of outright driving enjoyment.

Options for retirement car?

Answered by CarsGuide 18 May 2015

If you're retiring and you have the cash, you should reward yourself. I would recommend the excellent Mercedes-Benz C-Class, but not a diesel unless you do more than 30,000km a year.

Run flat tyres on new Mercedes-Benz

Answered by CarsGuide 25 Jul 2014

Fitting run-flats is a commercial decision by the company, no doubt it saves money. Not having a spare is not a massive issue for most Australians who rarely stray too far from civilization, but obviously can be for someone who does venture into remote parts. Those people would probably be wise to carry a spare.

Should I buy a Mercedes-Benz C63?

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Jun 2014

I'd go for the 507 every time. It gets The Tick in a big way and is even more fun than an A45. The biggest cost will be rear tyres.

Mercedes mystery

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Jun 2009

I HAVEN'T and I couldn't believe it, but I contacted Mercedes-Benz to check anyway. It confirmed my belief that your friend's information was incorrect, but to be sure Benz told us it would contact you to get more information and hopefully set your friend's mind at rest.
