BMW E36 M3 GT Individual

1 of 50 RHD cars built for homologation purposes for the Internationale FIA-GT Series and IMSA GT-Series.

Total BMW Magazine feature car.

Known to BMW Car Club GB and number 45/ 50 on the M3 GT Register.

Around a quarter of a million pounds has been spent on this car since 2005 on upkeep, servicing, maintenance and improvements all logged in the history file and can be tallied.

£16, 000 spent on the engine in 2019 at JC Racing.

£14, 000 spent on the bodywork in 2021.

Last MOT passed this week with no advisories.

HPI clear

Original engine, original stamped service book, and amazingly comprehensive history.

Aluminium doors – most GT’s did not have these, they were an uncommon option.

6 previous owners.

The car has done 200, 000 miles but due to the epic spend it is better than 90% of the remaining cars.

You may find this hard to believe (I’ll let you tally up the invoices if you are so inclined and end up buying the car) but around £250, 000 has been spent on this car since 2005 alone. That’s not a typo – I do mean a quarter of a million pounds.

This car has an incredible history file that is chronologically organised in two folders stacked full of paperwork going back decades. The original service history book is present with tens of stamps in the book including the all important running in stamp. Please note that a rarer point than you may think is that this car has the original service history book rather than a duplicate service history book (which many of the GT’s do) and original owners handbook. It also has the original (and rare) M3 GT handbook.

The car is on a correct age related ‘N’ Registration and the number can be changed (ie you can add a private plate if you wish) – for some reason a number of the 20 odd remaining cars have non transferrable N Registrations on them meaning you can’t change the number plate but you can with this one if you wish.

The owner prior to myself owned it since 2005 and it was his pride and joy and there are only 4 previous keepers prior to him. The car was an absolute labour of love for the previous owner who wanted it set up for regular track use for the Nurburgring whilst retaining the original look at keeping the standard parts where rational to do so. Things such as the brakes, suspension and engine have been upgraded with the best parts.

The car is well known to BMW Car Club GB and is also known to the BMW M3 GT Register – it is number 45/ 50 on there and you can read about some of the cars history on there.

This car has been driven by the legendary Sabine Schmidt and I understand she commented favourably on the suspension set up as it was taken to Stephan Mannhellers garage near the Nurburgring a number of years ago to have the suspension completely rebuilt to full Tom Schirmer specification including KW 2 dampers and springs, rose jointed etc. This was at a cost of £10, 000 in 2007.

AP 4 pot brakes were fitted in 2005.

The vanos unit was replaced by TM sport along with various additional work in 2014 at a cost of £4, 500.

A Quaife LSD was fitted in 2015 and during that work and servicing thousands were spent.

In 2019 the car went to the well renowned JC Racing in Thirsk (who look after BMW Road and Motorsport cars) and whilst there it had around £16, 000 spent on an extensive engine rebuild and much, much more. John has since commented that it has some great group n+ parts and that it goes really well and is really crisp – I’d echo those comments. Mr Vanos also looked at the vanos again. I have a rolling road printout of the power of this car to be 305. 5 bhp in 2019. The car still retains its original engine which adds a lot of value due to it being easier to export to Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia etc.

The money hasn’t stopped at just the mechanicals – hundreds of man hours have been spent on the bodywork and the invoices go on and on. Around £14, 000 was spent on the bodywork alone in 2021 and the receipts are very well documented.

There are receipts here there and everywhere throughout the history file for £1500, £3, 000, £4, 000, £5, 000 and they just go on and on. The history really is something else to see and it is all laid out chronologically in the file along with old insurance valuations, old MOT’s, build sheet details and much more.

I have a mint original example of the Total BMW Magazine that the car featured in and that will go with the car.

You may have read that the M3 GT’s came with aluminium doors but they did not all come with aluminium doors. In fact, the vast majority of them came with the usual doors fitted to an e36 M3 and only a few had aluminium doors. I personally feel that the original aluminium door cars carry a significant premium to the more common, heavier normal GT’s. I am pleased to say that I have the original build sheet for this car, chassis number EA85126 and this car came with aluminium doors (option code S919A).

I am spending more and more time abroad (including much of this year) hence making the decision to sell my M cars and this is the last one left. I feel this may well be the best E36 M3 GT Individual that you can buy (original aluminium door car, how it actually drives, history, money spent, the engine etc).

Please let me make the following clear to anyone that may be interested in coming to view:

The car has had paint and some panels which you should expect if thousands of pounds has been spent on restoring the bodywork in the past few years.

The car does not have the original GT wheels but the wheels as in the picture - please take note.

The brakes and suspension are modified with high quality costly items - the brakes and suspension are not standard.

The bodywork is not perfect despite the money spent - it is not concours although I personally think it is very good for a 27 year old car. As part of the restoration work there are a few things you’d notice such as the passenger side aluminium door not fitting perfectly and a few other bits and bobs.

The center console wood has the original wood on the handbrake lever and ashtray but the console around the gear lever has been replaced - as you can see in the pics.

The central locking is intermittent

There will be some people that quote one similar car that sold for a little less some time ago now (on an eBay no reserve auction to the trade) but I know most of the M3 GTs from viewing at shows over the years and have owned some of the others over the past 10/ 20 years. Take it from me that this one has the best history, bodywork, mechanicals and so on of the remaining ones that I have seen in my opinion so please don’t just compare values by comparing mileage and asking price.

The car is stored on trickle charge in a new garage and good to go having been MOTd (August 2022) and now ready to accommodate viewings.

The price is fixed other than the fact that I will knock off the cost of 4 brand new tyres for the owner.

Please only get in touch if, having read the above, you are 90% sure or above that you will come and buy the car - I am often out of the country so can have a family member show you around or I can do it when in the UK.
