M3 CSL review from Autocar

I like it :bigpimp:

When a car comes from the factory with Michelin competition tires, you know it's serious :yikes:

Just like many of the '95 M3 LTWs had aftermarket stereos installed, I predict this car will as well.

I bet at least as many will have the A/C REMOVED ;)
4.2sec 0-60 that's F360 fast. I guess there are more rooms for the already stretched 3.2L, can I borrow $85K?
I must say that I'm too much of a wimp to want any car that doesn't have A/C. :p
45,000 British Pounds = $70,699.50 at todays conversion rate.

You suppose they come with free carbon fibre mats, or continuing with the tradition will you have to biatch about those, too?
:lmao: :lmao:

$70K isn't bad. I'd take this over the 911, at least for the track :thumbup:

yes, but the base E46 M3 coupe over there is 39,340 Pounds= $62,000.

A similarly equipped M3 coupe here (they get more standard) would go for around $52,000.

Thus, the CSL may be closer to $60000.

yahoo!!!!!

now that's the car we're talking about, buddy.

didn't take the time to read the small print other than the specs.

did they include a 'ring time?

that car rocks. truly.

would be strange if it comes over to the US priced at more than a 911, though.

i'm looking at 68large right now and a very easy to get car.

versus 65k plus markup plus highly constrained demand?

I think the next issue of BMWCAR will have a 'ring test. The concept is supposed to be 30 seconds faster than the standard M3 (which is VERY fast at 8:22) :yikes:

I'll bet this one could turn an 8 minute time :yikes: You have to assume that BMW was shooting for a sub-8 :thumbup:

I've read it did turn an 8 minute Ring time, beating the regular M3 by 30 seconds.

I don't think they've officially run one. I believe the (sub)8 minute time was a theoretical one.

8:22 is definitely the M3's time around

Yep, did the 'Ring in just under 8 minutes.

Hella impressive for a ~$65,000 car if you ask me. But then again, with the limited availability you'll probably be looking at $15,000 mark ups everywhere except Cutter Motors.

Hey Jooooooooooooooooooooooooooon!
I'd also like them to test the CSL around the 'ring against an E46 M3 with the exact sime wheels and tires for a more accurate comparo.

So is it quasi-confirmed to be ~$65K pre markup?

At that price, I'd still have a hard time picking it over a 911.
Do we have any idea of MSRP on these? I bet I could switch my order from an //M3 to a CSL.
