The E46 M3 and CSL were in different leagues and price ranges.
It'll likely be the same for the E92.
It just shows that although some people had the same concerns about the E46 M3 as are being expressed about the E92 M3, the E46 M3 was a pretty decent car. Run of the mill, I know. Nothing special. A decent daily driver.
Everyone is way too quick to jump to full conclusions based on a few limited reviews. Just kinda silly. That's all. Typical youthful impatience.
