I think itís looking even better than the current grill.

For the people who think BMW isnít going to triple down on the big grill thing it might be time to find another brand. 10 years from now the kidney grill is no longer going to be functional. In electric cars itís not needed. The Kidney is their identity. So they are going to do other shit with it. Like making it really big and stand out.

I need to ask, if G80/82 come with the option of 6MT, why not the CSL? Why is G82 M4 CSL rumoured to come in auto only?

Any thoughts on this please?

It's sad, but the M3 has always had a manual transmission, and the CSL/GTS versions have always been automatics.
E46, E92, F82, and now the G82.

Because BMW said the manual can't handle the competition horsepower. No way they're going to decrease the hp on the CS or CSL, unfortunately.

But the competition comes with manual (or so I'm led to believe)

It does not. Only manual offered is in the base model, which is detuned from 503 to 473 horsepower apparently due to the fact that the manual can't handle the power.

BMW's rationale is that the CSL/GTS cars are more track focused and the fastest way around a track is with an automatic these days.

I hear you but it still has Street functionality. Not everyone who buys one does so solely to track the car.

Even if I was to track the car every weekend, that still leaves 314 days of the year for Street driving.

I'll be ordering this as soon as I can. If you hate this package - go put money down on a Taycan or something.

LMAO

I've already put a deposit down on a CSL months ago (hoping I'll get allocation somehow) - I'm not hating it, just stating facts. The CSL will not be a GTS - sure, it'll be track focused, but not built solely for track use (if the E46CSL is anything to go by).

Besides, why are you getting your knickers in a twist? I'm raising a legitimate query; having a manual 50 Jahre edition would be awesome.

Don't disagree, was just stating BMW's likely rationale

Something different about muffler in these photos. Blue and gold hue to the metal used.

Different muffler than with G80/82? Or just a 'non-polished' muffler?

Likely titanium.

I am all about this. Ti exhaust, even more stunning mesh style wheels, hood and spoiler.

Sign me up.

Nope. Looks better and more aggressive. Follows the style of the DTM car.

Can it really not handle the power, or is it an excuse of some type? The manual is probably the same from F8x M cars and those weren't that far off for the ZCP models. I have a 6 speed F80 pushing more power than the stock G8x ZCP with no issues. So it makes you wonder what the real reason is

This picture looks pure evil and a proper mean machine. The grill looks like devils horns on the inside and with an really evil grin. Like proper you are f* moment when its behind ya. If the current M3/M4 series drives like a mad lad on steroids the CS/CSL will be even more crazy.
