This mod adds full customization to the BMW M3 GTR Race version.

Notable features:
- Full customization options
- New kits
- New hoods (including missing hood style 31 & 32, with LODs)
- Spoilers, Roof scoops, decals, vinyls, etc customization fully functional
- Performance upgrades
- Improved performance/physics configuration
- Vanilla MW-level quality
- LOD models
- damage textures

VLT performance configuration:
- sets base performance similar to M3 GTR Strassenversion (but better)
- sets top (fully upgraded) performance to original M3 GTR race, with some minor improvements
- performance data is stored in their own nodes for bmwm3gtre46, just to safeguard against issues.
- uninstall script fully restores all bmwm3gtre46 related VLT settings back to vanilla
- Removes m3gtrcareerstart from frontend if you have exopts with "ShowAllCarsInFE" enabled, so you don't have 2 M3 GTR E46s in main menu.
- Sets Final M3 GTR (the one you win from Razor) to fully upgraded. Apparently this breaks compatibility with save games.
- Optionally makes car available in Car Lot (but still only unlockable after beating Razor).

You must have extra options but NOT the latest version (until its issue is fixed).
Use version 9.0.0 and enable ShowMoreCustomizationOptions.

VLT Script upgrades performance, but is not required.
If you use it, you will need a new save game. It will work with older saves if you have exopts installed, but Razor's M3 GTR will be much slower.
If you only care about cosmetic upgrades (body/visuals), then no need to use VLT script. You just won't be able to upgrade the performance on the car.
VltEd download link:

Binary can be used to install this car, but its only purpose is to copy the files for you, which you can also just do yourself.

Is it possible to install this on the latest extra options now?

Even after buying turbo/supercharger, there's no turbo meter on the speed gauge. Please, look into it.

Erce (September 16, 2023 @ 18:03)
Can you add option to keep the performance as it is?

Erce (July 16, 2023 @ 18:53)
