Top Gun. Top dog. The best of the best. That's how I would describe the M3 CSL version of the E46 BMW M3. This Euro-only special edition dropped the weight and added the paddle-shift SMG transmission to make a great car even better.
We spend a considerable amount of Internet ink around here complaining that modern day BMWs are too heavy and not as enthusiast-oriented as they used to be. I'm going to offer some praise instead: I'm very excited about the M235i and 228i.
