BMW M4 CSL Provides Placements For Your Race Helmet
Which other road going car has race helmet compartment ready.
For BMW M GmbH, the world premiere of the new BMW M4 CSL was one of the highlights of its 50th anniversary year. The production of the special-edition model is limited to only 1,000 examples and we were surprised to find a special compartment behind the drivers seat with tight stowaway netting for race helmets to be stored.
So, it is clear that this BMW is designed for some track day specials and with just 1,000 units being made, there will be a handful of owners willing to take their limited edition M car on the track.

They have a fixed backrest angle, forward/back adjustments can be made manually, and the seat height can only be adjusted in a workshop using a three-stage screw linkage.
The M Carbon full bucket seats also have detachable head restraints and allow the integration of a six-point belt system.
The M Alcantara steering wheel, anthracite-coloured headliner, Carbon Fibre interior trim strips, “CSL” badges on the seats, centre console and rear panel, plus M-specific displays also help to create the perfect on-board setting for concentrated driving pleasure.
Merino leather trim with extended features and M seat belts are also standard. Let’s not forget the two race helmet storage units which can be found behind the seats.
