Congrats, I owned a black GT3 until I sold it to pickup a .1RS. Black GT3 has suck a bad *** look to it.

In general, I'm not a fan of black wheels, but the gloss centers combined with the polished lips on your car are killer! Congrats.

I think that car looks badass. I wouldn't touch it.

Add a bypass if you want. Loud enough.

Coilovers? You already have them. Only bmws need coilovers to make them actually handle

I used to be a BMW guy. 10 m3's in all across all the vintages and I sold my last one after I bought my 997.1 gt3.

Enjoy.

Don't you dare go to the track and discover what a GT3 really is. Better stay on the safe side where BMWs play. ­čśł

Sweet buy! I was watching that car as well at some point last year. The only flaw to me are the rear tires. These are not OEM size and look a bit stretched. Probably because of a lowered suspension ?
Nonetheless congrats on the purchase and enjoy in good health.

Had I not previously owned and tracked multiple GT3s and GT2s and more importantly enjoyed a full season in GP3 as a reserve driver, I might take slight offense to the implication that I am somehow fearful of the circuit 😭 My inclination not to track it stems from the pristine nature of the car. When I race, I hunt the kerbs with scant consideration to the aesthetics of the car. This beauty is for peering pleasure only!

Good observation. They are in fact a bit stretched; 305s. I'm not sure what the OEM spec is, nor have I put it on a lift to determine whether or not it has been lowered. All in good time. I was too busy detailing and wrecking the Skyline run this weekend!

As a longtime lurker and rare poster, I am not surprised by the healthy rivalry (sibling) between Porsche and BMW. As for the exhaust, it already had a Sharwerks race pipe and hence I am fine with the sound. As for the coilovers, on all previous GT3s I upgraded to Clubsports and was quite satisfied. Indeed, the OEM dampeners are adequate, but adequate never quite did it for me.

Speaking of rivalries... To me, it is love at first sight!

Gorgeous rides! I too fancy gold wheels. I sport gold S101s on a few of my Ms.

Same here. Black on gold is always a fantastic look.

OEM on a .1 GT3 is 305. They always looked stretched.
