Funny guys, did they actually not know what CS stood for? Or part of their carefree stick? Either way they do seem to get some nice cars!

I like these guys, been following them for several months. Although, I'm not sure I've ever seen anyone complain about the thickness of the steering wheel. For most that's a plus.

They actually know what CS traditionally stood for at BMW. I think they were just kidding around about it.

I enjoyed that video. Launch control seems like a beast. I didn't get a CS of course, but I'm sure launch control in my ZCP will be fun as well. I absolutely love the color and CF pieces. And that hood, OMG, I will be getting one for mine.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Way to go BMW.

The M3 CS is a joke. An M3 comp with a tune and some carbon bits? And they couldn't even be bothered to fit a carbon gear leaver and surround?

Poor effort and really shouldn't sell a single one as there is no real value here.

This has been BMW's MO for a while now....incremental changes, add a badge that resonates with the faithful, limit production to drum up demand, and profit big. Every review of this car mentions the absolutely ridiculous price.
