Looks like the front bumer will have a styling change to add some more aerodynamics, not sure if that's the final design, or just a test piece.

Soooooooo....... what? A lot more money for a effin CSL trunk spoiler?

A CSL for the current M doesn't make much sense. How much more do they plan on lightening the car?

the E92 M3 weighs more than the e46 M3 (and it's not because of the engine, the V8 is lighter than the I6), it will make a lot of sense.

Ya, i'm sure it would, but seing as how they already have the CF roof, and are using the lighter engine i don't see how the CSL price tag could be justified (you know it'll be quite a price jump).

They'll use a lighter interior, like the E46 CSL, but what else? The E92 seems more luxury then sport, so i don't see them taking out power windows or radio's and all those other good things!


And how much more power are they planing on squeezing outta the V8? They planin on TT it?

Just because it has a CF hood and roof, doesn't mean there's a lot of other things to lighten on it. the E46 has lighter seats, no rear seats, the center console is greatly reduced. Seeing that the E92 weighs more than the E46, I'm guessing there are that many more things to lighten on it.

As that picture stands, there are less alterations on the E92 M3 than there are on the E46.

I actually like it. It's just not molded into the trunk like hte E46. But the early prototype E46 spoiler was like that too.

I'm no expert on the topic (especially on the CSL's), but from discussions I've been involved in with the E30 M3 crowd regarding weight for track cars, there's a LOT of stuff that can be done, especially with exotic materials to save on the mass. I'd hazard a guess that the new M3 is fat to appease the general masses and fat bastards who want an M but to ride in comfort.

All kinds of stuff can be done on the suspension side to get rid of weight.

I'd guess that the interior of this new M could go on a BIG diet too.

Get rid of some of the softer BS conveniences as well............. especially in the electronics and touchie-feelie department.

Tinkering, depending on how far the development of the M3 V8 was taken, is likely under the hood too............. exotic materials once again, different exhaust......... and so on.

Anyways, it will be interesting to see regardless. And it will be EXPENSIVE !!*drink*

Oh, and I think with a twin turbo....... it may then eclipse the Audi RS4........... which is apparently just fantastic.

Pics don't work for me. :( Keep another thing in mind guys: the E46 CSL was ligthened in lots of ways (no radio standard, no A/C standard, cardboard composite trunk that couldn't be used for carrrying anything, etc). One thing for sure though: the CSL won't be worth the money, just like the E46 CSL wasn't worth the money.
