I like it :bigpimp:

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

A car like this doesn't need a radio :bigpimp:
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 ;)

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!

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.
