E46 CSL was a great car, an enthusiast M3!
Like the GTS is for E92.
So expect the F80 to be something like the E92 M3, but with a couple of turbo's, which makes it more easy as a daily driver.
Basicly it will be like the translation from E60 M5, to the F10 M5.
Again we should see a lighter car, not significant since the CF program isn't fully up yet, slightly more power, and about 30% more torque than the current M3.
But the 1M is where things are looking more exciting.
Remember M3 started with E30, a small nimble car, the M3 have grown out of this segment imo.
