I wonder what the "take rate" is for the F80 CS vs. the F82 CS? Could be a decent data point in terms of the likelihood of the CSL in the G80 or G82 (or both).

M2 CSL on the other hand...now that would be something to get excited about, just because of the smaller size.
My thinking is that if the CSL follows in the footsteps of the M3GTS and M4GTS as primarily track focused cars as stated in the OP, having a roll cage and no rear seats in a 4-door sedan kind of defeats the purpose.

For me, the ultimate ///M would be in the veins of the E46 M3CSL or E90 M3 CRT, track beasts that retain (almost) full daily practicality. Right now, the M4cs is what comes the closest to that for me. IMO, the M3cs is slightly more biased towards comfort while the M4cs is slightly more biased towards perfromance (more weight savings).

It's all about weight savings and power to weight or even hp per cylinder / weight.

So far 3655 is the number to beat ?

How much weight do we think can be ‘comfortably’ shed to put it at a refinement level similar to CS/L’s previously

I wish for 2890 or lighter
but...I'm not being realistic to what they'll most likely build us.

If they can shed 200 lbs of the regular car its going to be almost a miracle and anyways its going to look good to the general public so they will just stop there.

There are quite a few weight measures between regular m235/m240i and M2. Some parts cost more but they save money off some others for sure.
