Some new information that I found interesting...

To make the CSL more sure-footed and responsive, the engineers fitted a front strut brace and employed metal-on-metal suspension mounts to reduce play and compliance to an abolute minimum.

Sounds like those might be useful aftermarket if they are available :)

Also, the opening shot has the car lifting an inside wheel before an apex cone :thumbup: :p

Yep. I love that pic! Is it available someplace online? I'd love to have it as my desktop background.

BMWCar actually has an article on it too. But they also lie and say the car has 18" rotors. I was like "OMG!" But then I started to think about it how they heck could they fit on a 19" wheel and I looked at the pictures. They're more like 15.
