I owned an E30 M3. Loved that car. I got it new in 1088. It was Alpine White with black leather interior.

Best part about being a young man in that car other than the having it was that it handled better than it was fast and that is what I credit for having sold it in mint condition and being alive today.

Drive that sucker 178k !

I don’t think that I have ever seen an M3 CSL. BMWCCA is having their 10th annual M Car Days next month and over 200 M cars usually show up. But I haven’t seen an M3 CSL in the bunch.

I wonder how many made it over to the US?

Already watching it as I type this. Haha I don't think anything is overtaking the CSL in icon section. That was just the epitome of the M3.

They absolutely are numbered.

Be glad you bought it because the fabric of the car industry is changing forever.
