Xenons, Climate Control, BMW Business Radio and CD player, Park distance control, Pop out rear windows, M-sport mode, Sport button, ESP, ABS, Central Locking, Electric Windows, Carbon roof, Lightweight equipment.

EXTERIOR
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 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 considering the cars mileage. There are very few stone chips to the front end to note with only a speckle on the front splitters to report. Smaller details such as the front and rear BMW badges and waist line trim also remain in fantastic condition.

INTERIOR
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, with a small show of wear to the drivers side offside bolster. They are bound in grey Anthracite cloth, which is showing minimal wear to seats bases.

The three-spoke M steering wheel is clean and showing no signs of wear to the wrapped alcantara, which still feels smooth to the touch. The carbon fibre centre console remains free from scratches and damage and retains its factory limited edition plaque. The lightweight theme continues to the door panels being decked-out in yet more carbon fibre.

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.

HISTORY FILE
This CSL was first registered in September 2003 by the supplying dealer, Bowker BMW of Preston. The service booklet shows regular inspections throughout the cars life at the correct intervals at the BMW Main dealers as well as further interim oil changes over and above BMWs service recommendations. Alongside this there is also MOT paperwork dating back to 2007 and a vast collection of invoices outlining various work done of the car since 2003. The next service due, an Oil change, due on time, in March 2020.

Having been sold by us in the past, with a further inspection in house this time around, as well as residing in the care of a well known detailer for a duration of its life, it’s safe to say that despite its mileage, the care this car has been subject to throughout its life is evident in its superb appearance, condition and service history file.

Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
