Out and Out race car is the GTR i love it and still love the E46 M3 GTR. Somewhat based on the E92 M3 lol. Shares less parts with the road going one than what the E92 M3 road car does with a cooking 3er.

That only shares door skins and boot lol

Ah but an E30 M3 (the real deal) only shares the bonnet with the 3 Series.

Old car rules again

Give it its correct name Carlos, GT2.

The road going M3 doesn't even share its bodyshell with the E92.

No the chips still there.

lol just the once, it was a wreck when bought by the previous owner. Though the first thing I'm doing when I get it is having the bonnet resprayed lol it has had a dodgy paint job done on it, not totally dry when sprayed.

Not concours but the only marks are two small dents at the rear of the car, no scratches or rust!!

If you would be willing to travel to Derby to get your car sprayed we have two excellent bodyshops, Wilkinsons who do absolute mega projects and Chartwells that deal with more modern stuff, though you won't beat the Wilkos.
