It might be legitimate. That won't be around long. Let the games begin. I am no expert but in his description of the CSL there are a couple of irregularities. I thought the bootlid was plastic? He says it's carbon fiber.

that seems pretty real to me. the effort that goes into transforming an e46 m3 into a csl model that looks like this takes too much money and time. i dont think someone would do it to try to make a profit. this is the real deal

Along with the description of the car I also question why he is selling that car on Ebay and not in the collector car market. People in the know will pay top dollar for that if it's legit.

OMG


If the car was listed on a private collector market as mentioned in an above post, I would be all over this if I could fly and get it checked out. Seems legit but personally as tempting as this is I would never buy a car off of E-Bay.

I believe in order to register and insure it, it would have to be a kit car, I think, which might scare people away

I think AA has a e46 CSL. This might be the same one.

The little detail that the CSL was never EPA/NHTSA/DOT you-name-it certified for the USA is conveniently obviated fom this auction.

Yeah you're right, power was increased by 17 bhp from the 343 offered in the 'standard' model.

Pretty sure the car is genuine though. I've never seen a data plate faked before!

i think this is a legitimate CSL. If i'm not mistaken, i've seen a thread of a guy who had a CSL in Florida being displayed in a after market tuner shop

Quite a breathtaking car, but it's amazing how dated the car looks now compared to the E92. I question when someone shows magazine articles instead of the original window sticker and owners manuals. If he bought it new, where is the window sitcker. Too many csl parts not to be the real deal though. It would costs thousands to create a car like that and you certainly don't get your money out of it.

The car is probably legit but unfortunately not street legal in the US...Its possible that it was done the "kit car" way & there is a VIN placard, but even then its a royal nightmare to actually register the car in most states.

It used to be fairly easy to register gray market cars in Florida in years past. Lots of GT-R R32's and R33's in FL got in that way, but those days are long gone. I doubt the car was legally imported into the US...only legal "non-crazy" way I know off is for someone in the military to be deployed in Germany and buying it while on tour, then having it shipped back after deployment.
