BMW development chief complains that everyone loves the e46 CSL
 
“It has to beat everybody in the segment in driving dynamics because all the Australian, UK and American journalists say ‘ooh the E46 CSL was the last real 3 Series’,” Frohlich told motoring.com.au. “I do not want to hear that shit anymore.”

LOL.

It bothers him enough whine like a little baby about it, but not quite enough to actually give us the focused M2 CSL or Z4M Coupe that would silence us.

Those just wouldn't create profits like luxobarges and M SUV's. Got it.

Lol. Comments were best part of that article actually.

And frankly I find it hard to believe that US customers - myself included - would jump at the opportunity to buy a (guessing) $100k + M2 CSL. Perhaps more, seeing how much the carbon fiber parts cost plus whatever motor (M4GTS?) would go in, etc.

I can already see the “lightly tickled GT3 instead pls” arguments (and I agree).

Z4M I could see being cool but I never thought the M division was great or not depending on a fringe car with such minuscule volume.

If the “base” M2/3/5 are great cars then the rest is just a bonus in my opinion.

If they made a $100K M2 CSL, would you buy it?
and no.... "Yes, but used" does not count

That's the point BMW doesn't build cars that don't sell well, which is odd they are continuing the Z4 while Mercedes is axing the SLC.

My point is that BMW is doing the right thing. So many other more desirable options are available at the $100K price point.
Not to mention the fact that the M4 GTS had a window sticker of $135K and no one wants them at even $100K.
