I'll have me a stripper please.
That really depends on whether BMW will make a CSL version. If they choose to position the M3 as more of a Gran Tourer, with the CSL as the low weight version then it will come specced with plenty of gadgets.
Since I have my name down against an E92 CSL, I suspect it will come out and with BMW bringing out the 'M2' with a high-revving straight six they might well choose to position the M3 as more of a 'junior' M5/M6. Hopefully that still allows the M3 to be around 3500lbs, but I really doubt it will be any lighter than that.
