Any chance of you removing your valve cover and looking at the cams to settle this once and for all??

That saloon is an odd beast. Not sure what's going on there at all. Added it to the Register for curiousity value more than anything else. Another one came out the woodwork the other day but it was in poor nick. Someone had rammed something pretty solid with the front end...

No evidence of splitter, internal trim or GT Class II spoiler on the saloon either - really just the BRG paint and nappa/alacantara seats.

Yeah that is strange, did BMW ever offically release the Saloon version do you know or maybe you had to ask after hours! My GT Saloon spoiler is genuine so maybe their were a good few more.

On mine I have a rep GT front splitter and genuine GT rear spoiler, carbon fibre glovebox bit with motorsport badge and the side moulding motorsport badges hence people think it's a GT! I've also replaced the rest of the wood bits with black interior couldn't justify the 900.00 CA wanted for full carbon trim

Like Losly said if you ever get a chance to look at your cams let us know

I have no idea what the saloon actually is... Mobile Tradition issued a certificate for it but considering they'd never heard of the GT Individual, I'm really not sure what to make of that.

Compare the saloon sticker with mine :

GT Individual :



GT Saloon :



BMW certainly produced GT Class II spoilers for the saloon - http://www.partsauction.co.uk/ had one for sale for a while.

I've found some more evidence to back up bmwmregistry.com's claim that the LHD GT Coupes are mechanically superior to the RHD GT Individuals. It's only my opinion but I think it's conclusive ;-)

http://www.qv500.com/bmwe36m3glance.php (& if you follow the link to http://www.qv500.com/bmwe36m3p2.php).

So, the only differences between a standard 3.0l M3 and the M3 GT Individual are the front splitters, GT spoilers, strut brace, the colour and the interior trim. The GT Coupe however also had suspension, gearbox & engine modifications (the full list here http://www.bmwmregistry.com/model_faq.php?id=14#6), and "BMW Motorsport International" emblems on exterior door mouldings & interior sill plates as standard.

Interestingly (& kinda makes sense now), the GT Individual came with a standard 3.0l owners manual whereas the GT Coupe came with its own GT Coupe owners manual (http://www.m3gtregister.com/pdf/supplement.pdf) showing the higher horsepower figure, which is what led me to ask questions and investigate the GT Individual more closely in the first place! ;-)

Only question to Duncan then, are you going to change the information on m3gtregister.com?? ;-)

Last point, I still think the GT's (coupe/individual) are awesome cars and I'd luv to own one some day... at the right price of course. ;-)
