Figured I might as well have some Scotch and browse cars, and since I know everyone loves to hear what I might won’t buy, I figured I’d post again.

So after posting this IS-F last night, I don’t think it’s a real contender for me. It’s got too many miles and is more than I want to pay for that many miles. Regardless of wether or not it should run for a while, things that aren’t the engine wear out and need to be replaced, and I don’t want to have to do the suspension on a car I just bought and have a loan on. Sure I could pay cash, but that’s not happening. As a result, I let my mind wander. It came back to the thought that I’ve had for a while, why shouldn’t I just get a C63?

So I decided to shop for one, and there’s not that many ones near me. This is, in fact, a good thing as I can’t go buy one on a whim. That said, there is this 2010 on Carvana for a price I would pay.

Let’s ignore the fact that this is a 2010 and the head bolts might need to be done on that mighty 6.2L V8.

We can also ignore the fact that the interior in this isn’t the greatest.

What I don’t want to ignore is how much more I like the styling of the per-face lift W204s.

To me, it looks fantastic. Sure the E90 M3 is a better looking car, but that doesn’t mean this is also a great looking car. It’s also white, which is the color I wanted for my E90 M3.

So, for 23k would I buy it? Absolutely I would. I would forgive all the short comings to have it. In fact, I think I might start casually shopping for one.

By casually shopping, I mean I did see how much they’d give me for the 3.
