Tools Required:
1) Binary v2.4 (as of this mod release, the latest version of Binary is required)
2) VLTed

How to install:
1) Run Binary
a) Click the icon on the left to launch Binary for users
b) Select "Setup_BMWM3_Binary.end" from this directory
c) Select your NFSMW installation directory
d) Save.
2) Run VltEd
a) File -> Open -> select your NFSMW installation directory
b) File -> Import -> ModScript -> select "Setup_BMWM3_VltEd.nfsms" from this directory
c) Select "Install" option
d) Save.

4) Run the game and create a new save file OR patch your existing save file using the save patcher, included with this mod.
a) The save patcher is only useful if you haven't installed any previous versions of this mod before.
i) Run the "SavePatcher" exe and select your save game to patch.
ii) Then, use the "SaveEditor" exe, and simply open your save file and save it again. This is to prevent a bug that prevents the game from loading the patched file.

Seriously, thank you all so much!

Does this require the tuning mod?

am i the only one or this folder has a trojan, is it a False Positive, not only that, when i tried the M3 GTR addon on Binary, it says something like this "Stream Length must be non-negative and less than 2^31 - 1 - origin (Parameter 'value')"

This mod is not compatible with the English version of the game. Requires Denmark. And I cut out the rest of the languages
