It looks/sounds as sick as any other M4...so nothing particularly 'extra sick' just because it's got a CSL tag.

I'll wait for the M4 GTS Nürburging Full Carbon Full Electric edition with swan neck wing and canards on the front wink

The grille IRL isn't so bad but agree it looks awful in pics - but looks like it will really shift!

Haha - no GTS anymore. I think it looks like it will really shift. I think it would be a lot of fun!

Every one i've seen 'IRL', whether M3/M4/M440whatever, yes they are really that bad. Plus given how few of them i've seen around here compared to F8x models when they were released would tend to suggest that everyone else is still able to see clearly how fking ugly the cars are.

Would honestly take an F80/F82/M2 Comp and leave this latest 4wd batch to those that need the extra capability, couldn't pay me to drive one of the latest ones. As someone who's been a stalwart of BMWs since the 60s/70s, this latest generation of cars are so far removed from the brand's core values they may aswell be Audis/Mercedes - a load of homogenised crap.

So go on then, what's this 'sick' M4 CSL going to weigh - as little as 1600kg...? rofl

I think it looks fine IRL, but let's agree to disagree. F80 / F82 got a lot better towards the end of their life and the M2 Comp is brilliant.

The E92 M3 weighed 1580kg, so wasn't exactly lightweight at a time when BMW made brakes out of milk bottle tops. The new M3 is genuinely awesome to drive - so if the CSL is 100kg+ lighter, it should be brilliant.

Well 'sick' is certainly one way to describe it.

Haha - no. But I am surprised that there aren't more car enthusiasts in the M power section of PH. I mean the M5 CS won EVO COTY and if this thing really weighs about 300kg less than that, isn't that something that people like us should be excited about?

Haha - I think with a number plate IRL, it looks OK. Better than an Alfa Giulia Cloverleaf with a number plate in any case!

I'm personally a big fan of the turbocharged M4's, so I'm looking forward to seeing what this will be like. I've had the S54 NA in a E85 Z4M, and the S65 NA in a E92 M3, and for me personally those engines didn't suit their kerbweight all that well.

I much prefer BMWs turbo engines in their M cars, because they help to hide their weight, and the torque really helps to offset the weight I reckon. The M cars with the NA engines only feel quick right at the top of revs, whereas the turbo M cars feel quick everywhere across the rev range in comparison for me.

Yeah - that's very true - my E92 M3 only felt truly quick past 6,500rpm. So you had to be really pushing it to get the most out of it. I loved that engine though!

Yes and it is a cracking engine for sure! thumbup

I'd really love to experience that engine in a lighter car though. I've always wondered what the S65 V8 would've been like in something like the Cerbera I had, because that only weighed around 1200kg.

The induction noise from the S65 is heavenly I reckon. cloud9

Completely agree - I did read somewhere that somebody put that engine into an E30 shell - can you imagine!
