Beautiful build and great looking car. Love the mods list. By the way you need to move your trunk badge up like on the CSL.

Once I install all the parts then I might move the badge. I have not earned the badge yet to be a CSL conversion yet in my book.

Bro

It has nothing to do with u putting CSL parts on your car

The correct position for the badge is the correct position and it should be higher than where it is now. Just saying as it looks odd where it is now.

The little things make all the difference, nice ride.

Anyone else notice the factory fresh E46s and E39s in the backgrounds of the images in the first?

How many OEM CSL parts are you planning to have in your CSL?

The major CSL parts that matter. The rest are upgrade parts that anyone with a CSL could change to make it go faster / handle better.

Big box should up today with some of the parts you all have been waiting to see. CSL intake kit less a few parts cause the dealer screwed up and did not sent a few parts. So have to wait for the last few parts need to have the complete kit. Also included was the CSL door handles to make the custom CSL doors. Slowly getting all the parts in still.

I am not too familiar with the CSL upgrades, But isn't that you need to have a manifold+intake+cats combo to get more low and midrange torque. What would the intake alone DO? I am just curious..I hope is not only sound. Again! great thread.

Edit: the CSL intake for this spec case. We all know what an intake do in general.

CSL intake is does not give you much unless you do the cams with it. The headers, cats help with mid ranges or high ranges. So unless you are willing to do cams as well the intake is not worth doing.
