My Ride: BMW M3 CSL
Yes this time its real not a render. Heres the story :

I never thought i will be able to get my hands on the csl so fast but i was lucky enough to find this good deal at mobile.de The car has 60k km and bought it for 39k euro in Düsseldorf. The car was stolen and had one accident, the whole front was damaged but it was replaced with new parts by the dealer. I received the necassary documents from the Police that the car has been found and can be used.

Last offical bmw check was at 55k km. So i risked a lot with this car cause i couldnt possibly know what happened to the car while it was stolen, but fortunately service told me that everything is all right. Needles to say that im crazy fanatic about this car since 5 years now and that was my happiest day of my life so far to buy this car and own it more pics coming soon this was taken at Salzburgring last month.

As much as I absolutely love the CSL (your car is gorgeous), it disappoints me that they weren't made in 6-speed manual.

thanks man but why do you think its dissapointment? its a track car, gear shifts must be fast. My smg received an update it changes gear now in 2 miliseconds. love the shift paddles too

I suppose people take tracking cars differently in Europe.

If I had a CSL over here, I'd take it to the track maybe a couple of times a year? I prefer manual when I'm driving around the city/highway, but at the same time, I've never been in an SMG M3 or a CSL.

Nice pics btw, any big plans for the car?

its fine on road too you can choose the speed of the smg, there are 5 levels, 6 if you turn off DSC. so if you want to drive in the city you choose the second level of the smg then the gearchange is not so fast. on the track you use maximal level. Im planning to get the Alcon CSL Cup brakes, thats the best brakes for the csl and also change the exhaust to Lightweight Titanium, and KW Clubsport suspension. So far i made a software tuning, so it has 390 hp and 400 nM now, and bought new CUP tires.
