What engine degreaser did you use?

Thanks. Your the second person I hear from that uses simple green. May have to finally give the stuff a try.

Great photos' thanks for sharing. The way the CSL front bumper id designed it really needs a clear bra film of some kind to keep it looking great. The E46 M car is aging so well so I can see this version being a holy grail later on in the future. The good thing about having a replica is you will be still able to drive it like you stole it without fear!

Not sure about putting the CSL badge on your car, just seems odd. But it is definitely a good clone!

Your car is seriously inspirational to my own E92 build. Heck we even have similar colors! I love that you left the chrome kidney grilles on there.

Definitely. My car actually came from LA, and I thought long and hard about taking time off and driving it back the whole way to SC.

I'd love to drive it out West one day though and do PCH. We'll meet up then

P.S. Steel Grey, Sparkling Graphite, Mineral Grey... all the same damn color!

Yes, that is a common misconception about the CSL. There are in fact very few with the radio and A/C delete. However, I must say that the stereo and A/C in my CSL suck beyond belief. Then again, living in Scotland means I rarely need A/C, and the windows are down any way to listen to the shreak from that airbox.

I didn't see if this was the case earlier in the thread, but have you put an airbox on the car? It really makes the CSL what it is.

Definitely has airbox. I think he's pretty much retrofitted everything available, which is what makes this build so incredible IMO.

Did he make mention of any plans to make a CF intake pendulum for the E92 M as they do for the E46? I'm not sure if they only did that one because the OEM CSL piece already existed.
