I remember reading about this particular model of M3, known as CSL. I skimmed through a road and track magazine that talked about it. I remember it saying something about being made out of lightweight material that is suppose to reduce the gross weight of the car. Other than that, is there anything else special? I noticed the body is identical as the current m3 models. On another note, do you guys think the current M3 body style should change? Personally, I don't really like how the new model bmws are looking. It's losing it's traditional style that I have grown fond of. IE the new 7 series. Personally, I think they should stick with the current body design. I like it a lot.

the CSL is an M3 which is quite a lot more expensive than a regular M3, it is lighter and has more power, and the colour is like a platinum (exclusive to the CSL)
the current M3 looks awesome. and i as well am worried to see what the new M3 style will look like. i know that BMW loves to up power in there cars. and that might be very exciting but as far as asthetics go......well look at the new 7 and 5 series.
as for the styling of new bmw's, you have an E46! that's a new style. and i like the 7 more and more every day. yeah they might not look so great (new 5 series) but i wouldn't mind driving a 745 or a new 545 with a 6 speed manual

I think it is called Acalantra or something. I dont know if it is real sueade, but it looks like it would be perfect for wrapping a steering wheel with. I would like to do that to my steering wheel when I get my car back, pending on how much the material costs.
