Yeah' I hear you and you're not the first to admit how stupidly capable a car they are, sometimes fast can be too fast I guess, at least you can say you owned one.
Tell me about your 996 turbo? (see my signature)

Well, I normally get bored of my cars after 3 months , over the last 24 months I've gone from BMW E60 M5, mk6 golf r, BMW X5 40d (awesome cars!!) , BMW X6M , BMW M135i and GT-R!

However, I've owned my 996t over 5 years and cannot bring myself to sell , just goes to show how much I love it ! It's a 2004, tiptronic, convertible, running around 500bhp. With a naughty number plate....

Not sure if these links work:

How much are you looking at for one of them? I understand they have stronger engine internals . What would one with headers and map make compare to a regular C63 ?

Any with the Performance pack option will have up rated internals, but the 507 is just a little more special. Mapping performance wise I'm not sure, but they're more of a special item than a PPP C63

I think Shaks Special Cars has a 507 for 39,000, but think of the range of forty grand upwards is a good bet. There's a garage in Birmingham which has a white C63 with Accuair suspension and nicely modded which is up for 38,000 but it's not a 507

Ecain63 on here is best person to ask

Here's the one with the snazzy suspension~

Sorry Mike. I do have a really bad habit of sticking my nose in.

I get you now.

I'm always interested to hear about people changing from a GT-R to an E63 or C63 or a.n.other.

The reasons given above make sense though...

I have a guilty urge for a GT-R but I know I will end up dead or doing time which is one reason why I've not pursued.

I had the chance to buy a nice black 2010 plate with all the necessary work done and running same 600BHP as mine, still under warranty, for good money a few months back. I didn't press the button as being closer to 41 myself and not exactly light, I value my automotive creature comforts these days (and I can see that only going one way).

I do still like the 996 though - I love them when they came out... not to mention the GT2.

Even though I prefer the headlights on the later Porkers - the 996 was the first 911 that really did the figures in my mind.

Good luck with the hunt.

If you have owned a GT-R you might understand , they are not refined at all , have an extremely hard ride , clunky gearbox and a hot cabin! They are only really good for one thing .....SPEED
My friend got GTR and said he's not buying my C63 any more. But then, after another ride in it, he said it's more fun than his car.

I totally understand comments about GTR.

Doesn't make any difference if you are going to mod weather it's a standard 457bhp or a 507bhp model.
There is a urban myth that the light internals let it rev faster, which I could say is possible so that means the traction control light can come on faster lol.

Mine has pretty much stock internals and was a 457bho car initially.

Headers and re-map will get you roughly 550bhp.....but bear in mind with headers and the stock exhaust it will be loud.....as in your neighbours will all be woken when you start the cat on a morning.

There is a Dyno day at MSL on the 18th September and they are running offers on headers and remaps so might be worth giving them a shout

As Lee C63 says, there is a Dyno day at MSL in Birmingham on the 18th so may be worth coming along and having a chat with some of the owners and MSL to get a feel for the C, E, S CLS etc. in AMG form that are available and the various options

From what I read the E63 is the more rounded car IMHO .That's if you are looking for a more "leisurely" performance driving experience as you say above ??
