I wish instead of adding tacky stickers and the already available areo carbon add ons, they would produce a quality lightweight exclusive that performs (ahem... E46 CSL).

Even the E92 GTS can't be compared to the E46 CSL because they practically have the same lap time around the ring (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N%C3%BCrburgring_lap_times). The more powerful GTS should have been faster if only it was less heavy- but I digress.
I agree. Including the recent Lime-Rock (LRE) model, all limited releases are simply trim changes. I would be nice to see a CSL or in the case of the former 330i, a ZHP variant.
