Default Drove it for the first time tonight. AWESOME BABY!

After three years of off and on work I finally got the BMW-CSL running and run it does. Instant throttle response. Awesome but civil sound. The car BMW should have made for their '88 M3.
'88 BMW M3, 450 hp ?, '01 LS1/6, 222/226
@ .050, .570/.570, Lunati springs, Ti. spring retainers, chrom-moly pushrods, LS6 intake, LS6 heads soon, Katech rod bolts, modified Holden pan, ARP head studs, Mcleod aluminum flywheel, Camaro 6-speed, '01 BMW M Roadster front and rear suspension. This little 2700# beast has been my daily driver since I fired it up on Oct. 16, 2005, and it runs absolutely flawlessly.
