Report: BMW Considering 1M CSL ?

Seems as though they have not ruled out extending the 1M "family"

Quote:
'There is scope for a CSL version,’ BMW product manager James Morrison told us. ‘This car has certainly generated a buzz. When we planned for this car we were cautious, but now there’s some hype surrounding the 1M so there’s clearly going to be some people looking at what we can do next.

‘M is the pinnacle of engineering so if there’s a CSL proposition or something really different that we could consider then we would. If there’s something special and unique we can do with it then absolutely we would.

At that price your moving into M3 money so you could now say that that it will certainly be stepping on the toes of its older brother!

It seems this is the second article that appears to confirm that there is still UK allocation left.
A little disappointing as I would have expected all cars to be sold.

Yes, but it has only just been launched. Not all buyers follow forums like us addicts.

The article is very positive about the 300 already being sold is how I read it.

If there's gonna be a CSL version on this model 1M, I'm gonna be really pissed off at BMW, and demand they take back my standard 1M.

Why???
Enjoy your special little 1M. I would. They came out with the M3 E46 years ago and then came out with a CSL ONLY for the Euro market (no cars made for the US market) and limited edition. Didn't make any of us americans, who love BMW's, happy. But we are just as happy owning a regular M3...

The car is popular because of what you get for the price.

A CSL version which cost 20 a 25.000 euro more. Is a lot for a 1 series M.

I rather see a bigger performance line available for this car.

Sportier Seats / Race seats
Brakes from safety car/GTS
front splitter like Safety car/GTS
iighter Hood
Lighter rear trunk ---> more CSL style
Performance springs Lower!!!
Alcantara Steeringwheel with M stiching
Performance upgrade to 380hp and no speedlimiter with factory quarentee
18 inch lichtweight wheels like the GT4 one.

If this was made, it probably wouldn't make it to the US like past cars.
Plus when will this CSL get produced? 2012? It wouldn't have the n54 engine due to the emissions right?

Your probably right on all accounts. For the engine, it would have to have a new motor. As stated in other threads, this motor does not meet the new 2012 emissions standards. I think this is why the new N55 would need to be properly tuned and placed in the new 1MCSL??
As for it not coming over to the US, I certainly hope this is not the case. They did it with the E46 CSL which was a bummer. Hopefully not with a new 1MCSL. but if they did, I would be just as happy with a 1M

If a 1M CSL is made but not offered in the US, the LEAST BMW could do is bring some of the parts to the US... like the GTS-style front splitter

Why? If they made a CSL model, you would be able to install the upgrades on the standard 1M.

Scott26,

Can you give some information on the timing of additional news? I'm currently on the waiting list at my dealership. It would be nice to have an idea when some additional news might be coming out. It would be helpful to those of us on a list, in case we'd like to adjust our order (while we still can).

Thanks,
Leif W.

You really wanna pay 60K?

There are many cars out there for 60K that i would take over an 1M. GTR springs to mind!

How is that killing the experience??? You're getting a 1M right? You are one of the few lucky ones. Be grateful, sheesh!
They are only making the 1M for 1 year (actually less than that).
If they do make a CSL, it might not even make it over to US shores. So, that would REALLY suck (twice) for us Americans who wanted the E46 CSL. But we still got a E46 ZCP
