Awesome read! I remember taking a trip with my family touring Europe in 2005 and talking with my brothers about all the cars we may see that aren't sold in the US. Jokingly, I was saying, "what if we saw a CSL!" We all knew that seemed unlikely considering how rare the car is. During our trip, we were in Switzerland about to board our tour bus. My brother had the camera and I look down the street and I couldn't believe my eyes that I was looking at a CSL coming towards us. I remember almost screaming to my brother, "THERE IS A CSL COMING TOWARDS US!!" I was so excited for that one moment. It funny how my most fond memory of Europe is spotting the CSL.
here are the 2 pics we were able to grab (you may have possibly seen these pictures on the bimmerfest forums before haha)
