The M3 CSL was available in only two colour variants, Black Sapphire Metallic and Silver Grey Metallic. This example is presented in the Silver Grey Metallic paint option which looks incredible alongside the lightweight carbon-fibre panels that define the M3 ‘Coupe Sport Lightweight’. The paintwork is superb with no major mark or scuffs around the body.
The carbon-fibre roof panel, front bumper support and rear valance are in excellent order along with the shadow-line window trim that remains in superb condition.
Slipping into the lightweight sports seats the CSL interior is a beautifully minimal affair, clad in Titan shadow trim, carbon fibre reinforced plastic and upholstered in Anthracite reflex cloth. The deeply bolstered sports seats are firm and provide race car-like support, upholstered in alcantara they present free from any protruding signs of wear and tear. Much of the same is to be said about the rear seats, showing minimal signs of wear to the alcantara with just a few minor marks present on the plastic seat backs and rear divider.
The three-spoke M steering wheel sits in excellent condition; still soft to touch unlike some of the more high mileage examples. The carbon fibre centre console remains free from scratches as do the carbon fibre door panels which continue the lightweight theme.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Opening the bonnet on a CSL is a treat for any motorsport enthusiast. The BMW motorsport division pulled out all the stops tuning the 3.2 straight 6 unit and it is the addition of a carbon airbox on a road production car that really sets the CSL apart from other M power models, providing the driver with an aural symphony of straight 6 induction and engine note.
The engine bay remains perfectly clean and in keeping with its well cared for life.
Transmission is via the semi-automatic six-speed SMG II system with automated electrohydraulic clutch, capable of making smooth, lightning-quick shifts whilst also equally adept at more sedate pace in auto mode.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Arguably one of the finest production car designs, the 19″ lightweight alloy wheels help to set the CSL apart with an aggressive stance being 0.5″ wider than standard M3 alloy wheels.
All the alloy wheels are in excellent condition, along with the BMW centre caps which remain free from any damage.
All four wheels are shod in Michelin Pilot Supersport tyres that still show an excellent amount of tread.
This CSL was first registered on 05/08/03 by BMW main dealer Schneider GMBH in Bergen, Germany. The car was serviced twice by the supplying dealer, including a running in service at 1,869km, before being exported to Spain. The original service book stamps then show a service at BMW main dealer AutoPremier Valencia before the car was put into storage for a number of years.
Imported to the UK in 2016 by the current owner, he has further had it serviced by BMW sunningdale marked as an inspection 2 in the service book.
The original book pack is present along with spare keys and past MOT certificates.
