NEW BMW E92 M3 vs M3 46 CSL, Which would you take?

Wow, this video is just amazing. i’ve always been curious to see the differences of the ultimate m3 the CSL vs the new m3 with a v8 414 hp engine. Just amazing, i love them both, both look and sound nice but the new M3 is just better, it looks nicer, v8 sounds nicer and is faster which is really all that matters. These are both insanely fast cars that are just eye catching. In a way i kinda thought the CSL would be pretty much a tie on accelerating because i mean its a CSL. Check out the video and let me know which would you prefer and why? here are some stats i found online to compare with.

i found this online at rsportscars.com, but i find the 0-60 time on the CSL of 4.9 to be a little high, i read a lot of places a regular 333hp m3 is 4.8, so i would think a CSL 360hp would be faster. Heres Video
