So, if you were looking for a 3.0CSL

My wife has talked me out of the f-word -- Ferrari that is (the two kids ruined the other f-word, but that's a different post), saying "get a touring -- you've always wanted one and they're cheaper, too!" She's right on both counts (although the Ferrari was a 308gt4, the cheapest of cheap Ferraris).

But now I'm romancing the idea of a 3.0CSL.

Two questions:

Which would you buy, 2002 tii touring or non-batmobile 3.0CSL?

Where would I find e9 post and classified, etc?

only in dry weather (and never where there is salt), there is nothing prettier (IMHO of course) than a coupe and the CSL's are very very special.

It would be an easy decision for me.

Cheers!

at least get a sweet sounding straight six. Maybe you can throw on triple sidedrafts...

I have sworn to myself that one day I will own a Ferrari. Even if it's only for a summer or two. You can get one for the cost of new car and the 308's are pretty robust (for a Ferrari).

To be the one with my foot on the peddle making that V-8 sing it's 7500+ RPM song. I can't can't go to my grave not having done it.

If I'm real lucky, maybe a 12 cylinder. Anyhow, the CSL is a very good runner up. Good luck and keep an eye on Hemmings and BMWCCA, one may turn up there.

Am I wrong? In other words I thought all CSLs were decked

out like the one in the pic. I think either way you're in ferrari

land as far as price-probably more than a 308. Just guessing.

I'de be happy with a clean CS.

for sale, totally restored, probably a year ago, it was

the same that showed up in the Palo Alto swap

meet two years ago, in the parking lot. Maybe the

organizer knows him. If I remember right under

15k. It is a buyer's market so it may still be

available.

My dream BMW car: an Isetta, but my wife won't let

me either!

ALUMINUM HOOD , DOORS & DECKLID AS WELL AS

PERSPEX PLASTIC SIDE WINDOWS FOR LIGHT WEIGHT .

NUMEROUS LESS OBVIOUS WEIGHT SAVING FEATURES WERE

USED - MOST CSL's HAD MOTORSPORT STRIPES .

OH , YES , THEY HAD A FEW EXTRA HORSES UNDER THE ALUMIMUM HOOD . IT IS THE "TURBO" OF THE CS LINE .

THE BATMOBILES WERE INTENDED AS RACECARS -

VERY FEW WERE MADE .

308s are affordable -- until you pay for a tune up. I literally paiod less for tii two years ago than the cost of a major service and smog certificate for one..... That's where the money goes.

way cheaper, so as it goes, and just as nice, if not nicer. also way, WAY faster. we had a chipped and tidily modded BEATUIFUL '88 model in the dealership today. i spent half the day drooling over the 300hp six-throttle biggie six. sssssssssssooooo sweet. and parts are way cheaper than e9 coupe stuff, although still pretty steep compared to 02 stuff. id take the e24 M over almost any other bMw there is... cept a nice tight 02 ;)

Sure you want a CSL? Aluminum roof, doors (maybe), trunk and hood (maybe) that dent when you look at them? Motor that's no different than contemporary CS's or CSi's. Plexiglass rear windows that don't go down. Rest of the car rust on the mere mention of light fog. Non-"Batmobile" needing work (non-rust) will start around $20k. A really nice one might get $40k. A true Bat? They seem to be starting around $50k these days, in questionable shape. One of the 19 factory racing CSL's, if you can get in the loop to get your hands on one, fetch either side of half a million bucks.

Seriously though - visit the e9 board. CS's of all flavors there.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
