I get why the F82 CS is gonna exist. The EOP is 2020.

This is a pipe dream thread
I don’t see it as that big of a stretch to be honest - BMW made like 27 special editions of the E9X M cars towards the end of production. BMW will also be able to leverage lessons learned during the M4 CS’ development - so the M3 CS should be “easier” to develop if that makes sense (especially for things like suspension tweaks, software revisions, and engine tune).

I see this an an exercise consistent with a precedent they established before. It will be fun to see if it comes to fruition or not.
