Hi chaps,

Last M I had was a Z3M that was great but still struggle to shift in 2010. Looks like it would be £50k today! Always fancied a CSL and have been lurking. Cash now ready.

Anyone know this car? Anyone seen it?

There are two 60k ish mile cars on PH at the moment around this price. On at 67k miles still has BMW warranty.

Fair prices of good cars?

Cheers, Guy

Do not be fooled

You struggled to shift a Z3m in 2010 and it would be the same today, trust me. The prices these cars are advertised at eg Impreza p1, ford cosworth, csl are suckers prices

Go on the CSL Register and you’ll see the cars are on the market ages and people can’t sell

Csls are coming down in price and the market is flooded with them

It will take the owners a while to see this but prices are steadily reducing

Buy one if you wish but people are trying to cash in now

Worth searching/asking on CSL Register as the car may well be known on there.

Also agree with the comment on prices. I'd also say the somewhat 'specialised' nature of the car combined with the current market will mean a slow sell and this will no doubt be reflected in any trade-in price should you wish to move it on in the next couple of years.

Regarding warranty, the cost goes up quite significantly over 60k unless you are on the monthly payments. IIRC only the annual policy is transferable so I'm not sure if you could switch to a monthly at the lower rate when this policy ends. Hopefully someone with better knowledge can clarify this for you.

Fantastic cars.

OK chaps, will check the register website.

Agreed, they do seem to be sticking, but thought c£40k would be OK.

Every car is taking longer to sell and the CSL is no different.

We all know from your previous posts and threads started that you're trying to get the price as low as possible before you dip your toe or is it trolling..?

The CSL is nearly 15 years old and the majority are garage queens..the 15 year anniversary next year will hopefully get some cobwebs off and get them driving again!

Cheer up buddy.

Not trolling.

Whether they go up or down £10k is a moot point to me

I’m just giving my opinion based on what I think is happening

These cars for sale seem to be sticking. Have they peaked for the foreseeable or maybe even dropping in value?

Yes cars are sticking and appear to have peaked for the moment.
