FOR SALE; BMW E46 M3 CSL // 37K MILES // FULL BMW SERVICE HISTORY // XENONS

EQUIPMENT
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 a handful of visible stone chips to the front end upon closer inspection, but nothing out of the ordinary considering the cars low mileage.

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, upholstered in alcantara they present free from any protruding signs of wear and tear. Rear seats appear to have never been sat in and as such sit in near perfect condition.

The three-spoke M steering wheel shows some minor signs of wear to the wrapped alcantara, but 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 March 2004 by the supplying dealer, Wollaston Motors BMW. The service booklet shows 10 stamps throughout the cars life at the correct intervals, all with BMW Main dealers, as well as a vast array of invoices and a extended warranty report outlining almost all of the work the car has been subject to since 2007. The extended BMW warranty was active until 2017 and in that time covered thousands of pounds worth of work on the car, ensuring the car wanted for nothing and remained in the best possible condition.

Online MOT history verifies the cars low mileage, with a record every year since 2007 when the car had covered just 25,989 miles.

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