So I was looking into leasing a GLC AMG 63 SUV but obviously they lease extremely poorly. So I figured I would go the CPO route. However, Canada got the GLC AMG 63S but US only got the none S version. Soooo I wondered if I could buy a Canadian CPO AMG 63S even though I’m a permanent resident of Pittsburgh PA.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? I would greatly appreciate any intelligent input. Thanks!!!
Moving to Off Ramp since it’s not a lease question.
Can you? Yes. Should you?
You’ll need to research the specific import requirements, and you’ll have a car whose dash is calibrated in Metric. There are posts elsewhere about getting that swapped (I’ve seen lots on BMW forums, not certain about MB).
If you think that engine is producing 469 hp looool, it’s all software management with amg tbh, that m177 is used in the c, e, even the s from 2017-2019, it’s probably producing low 5s, and with a tune pushing 600+ crank.
The v8 is a lot heavier than the 6 that’s used in the x3m, the x3m is track designed. The glc63 is more of a straight line performer… amg’s bread and butter is that nasty 8 cylinder sound, outside of the m5,x5m,x6m and m8 the 8 cylinder is not used that much for M, whereas almost every mb model has a 63 amg variant, glc,gle,gls,c,e,s,sl, etc etc
Like I said body wise they compete but not engine wise. Performance wise the x3m is probably better.
Fwiw I think the x3m is the better suv, weight distribution on an 8 just isn’t right for the glc/x3m.
