Talking Finally Completed the ///M Trinity with E36 M3 GT !

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 ;

BMW M Registry - E36 M3 GT

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 ;

M3 GT Restoration PART I

M3 GT Restoration PART II

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

Beautiful collection, thanks for posting! I remember seeing your garage/cars in previous posts.

How do you get in/out of those cars w/ them parked so close together?

Congrats! I just skimmed through both videos, despite not understanding Turkish, and am absolutely blown away by the work you seemed to have put into restoring this. Please upload the subtitles ASAP as I'm sure many of us would be interested in knowing exactly what lengths you went to bring this gem back to its glory!

Wow! Incredible commitment to the car and the process to produce such results.

If you don't mind my asking, what financial resources did you need to accomplish this in Turkey? I imagine there are lots of taxes on parts and such.

WOW! Simply incredible collection

Kudos for your commitment and 7-year pursuit! I'm sure the feeling of having it in your garage after its tedious OE restoration feels pretty special.
