Very cool conversion. I want to say there is at least one other real CSL with the manual conversion. I don't recall where I read about it. Perhaps it was here, M3cutters, or CSLregister.

Ah yes, forgot about that one (perhaps this is the one I am thinking of).

Either way, this will turnout great.

Concur. Easily the thing I should have done FIRST to my car, as opposed to just recently. Owned it for 8 years now and daily'd it for 50k miles...

Habibi, AutoSolutions makes this car a joy to drive. I went with a 45% kit which is aggressive but for the CSL, I think a 20 or 30 would be PERFECT. Swap out the UUC garbage bro.

Bought one because everyone here lauded it, and while the quality of hardware and customer service were excellent, I never really enjoyed driving the car with it. It was one of the reasons I sold the car. It was very notchy (and I only got the 20% version! 40% is way too extreme).
Odd. My 25% isn’t really notchy at all. Very firm, but I don’t get that crunch into gears. I do have his so-called “autocross edition” which has a bearing instead of the plastic cup for the shifter ball.
