Ugh every time I see a CSL video I start to think of how I can get one into the US now... lots of family in Canada where the 15 year applies...

I use my CSL as a daily driver & the door handles & centre console work just fine. You don't miss a centre arm rest either as it encourages you to keep both hands on the wheel.

It does suffer from a lack of storage space though - no cup holders for a start!

Cool video. The M4 GTS seems to be the second pick according to their commentary, surprised they didn't go balls out with that instead of the M2C... or at least the CS.

I like their objective and broad definition of what "makes an M car". In line with my thinking.
