Yup

CSL is a stripped down version of the coupe. Its a full 90 kgs lighter than the M3 standard coupe by using some exotic materials while power is up from 343 to nearly 360 bhp.

This maybe the same M3 that I am referring to at the befinning of the topic.
I spoyted an Blue m3 last year at MAlabar hill exacty below the teen batti turning.

I thought , it must be Jay Mehta's but as all pointed out Jay has a black, so maybe this is the one amogh spotted

Coming back to V12s pics, it's not an M3, because there are no chromed slits/intakes near the fenders.

Hey guys,

Just saw a silver E46 M3 last night, im pretty sure it was an M3, it was comming towards me on the other side of the road with the bright lights....... believe me you cant mistake the muscular M3 for a sada beemer 3.
The car was at colaba...heading towards marine drive from the president hotel area (also known as ambanis residence?? what say?)

Oh...and its not the same one V12 posted above...coz this was a convertible!

Seen the Narangs M3 last week at their bungalow in Bandra. Looked really amazing. Also parked inside was an old 6 series and the Red Bull Octavia. But the best in the lot was the electric blue M3. Will try to get some pics.

Dippy,

The new M3 convertible you speak about does not have an SMG. A friend of mine will be sourcing the pictures...
