5.2sec is the official time but some testers have done under 5 secs. Its got a lot of factors, tires, road temp, Fuel type,etc. But really then what is all that 9gran for anyway. Just buy a stock M3 and change the seats. The story with fuel is a sad one. I enquired once with AC Schnitzer for an M3 mod, and they said that becoz South Africa doesnt have 97 octane Unleaded Fuel the mod doesnt work, where as in Germany they do. In SA we have 95 Unleaded. What is it here?

You get Enzo Ferrari's official Seats for USD 9000. Why pay GBR 9000 for the Williams 'Tagged' seats.
I know CSL is way better than the standard, but it is not practical by any means. Everyone knows, they take away everything that a Standard M3 has to offer no rear seats, no luxuries (i mean its a Beamer).. And the worst part is, the stock tyres in the CLS are slicks, (they're awsome for track driving but not for practicle use). I'll still stick to the Standard M3 Coupe, and the this, Williams-F1 version doesnt take it to another place, even though just 25 made.

Absolutely Sam, but BMW HAS to give the same official specs as the M3 Coupe for this Williams BMW as well.

In india we have a few pumps which have what seems to be 93 octane.....but who knows if it really is exactly 93!
