Default E36 M3 GT Restoration [VIDEO+PICS]

Hello everyone,

It's been a while since I posted here but wanted share my excitement with true enthusiasts ;

After 20 years of lusting and 7 years of persuasion, I finally acquired one of the dream cars of my teenage years, the infamous and massively underrated, E36 M3 GT !!!

For those of you not familiar with the car, M3 GT is the equivalent of CSL, SPORT EVO or GTS in E36 M3 family. Total of only 356 cars were made to homologate BMW GT racing cars. They were modified and lightened versions of 3.0L Euro M3 which pushed the power from 286hp to 295hp with racing cams, ecu and other BMW Motorsport items. They all came in British Racing Green with Mexico Green Leather and Alcantara interior and Carbon Kevlar trims.

You can learn more about the car here ;

As I said, it's been a very long battle to acquire this car from my friend. 7 years to be exact and finally convinced him to sell to me as it is the only one in TURKEY. My car is No:179 of 356 ever produced.

Unfortunately the car was in pretty bad shape when I got it but I knew that. Since this was a limited edition BMW M product, I was ready to got the extra effort to restore it to factory condition no matter the cost.

I filmed my entire restoration process in these two YouTube videos ;

Videos are in Turkish with subtitles.

So without further ado, I like to present the ///M community my newly restored, one of 356, BMW E36 M3 GT along with its stable mates
