This mod overhauls the BMW M3 GTR to be more real-world accurate, and no longer a "Pump Gas Kit Car". This mod improves the GTR with extensive additions of details on the bodykits, wheels, interiors, any details as seen on the real car! More details, download this mod first and you'll see the big change yourself! Now with customization, you can choose how your car looks, MW style or ALMS (real world racecar) style!

Please always check Changelogs below the screenshots to make sure you install updates properly, and not to miss out on something new!

- 2 Body Kits
- 3 Spoilers
- 2 Interior
- 2 Brakes
- 3 Headlights and Brake Lights

- 3 Tire Brands (Visual)


IMPORTANT before install, Backup your GLOBAL, CARS folder before!
Run "Binary Data Install.end" inside the mod files with Binary, then run "NFS Mod Script Install.nfsms" with VltEd.

CHANGELOG (For anyone who actively downloaded this mod from version 1.6 and up, just copy "Binary Files/_Main Files/CARS" into your game files from the mod files, if any new updates don't include Binary based customization/stuff. Found any errors? just reinstall the whole mod by running both scripts inside the files. The car got bugged after reinstall? make a new savegame!)

> Fixed bugged hood, reworked bodykit geometry and some textures
> Added interior details: Exhaust duct, fire suppression system
> Added window air caps from NFS No Limits

-1.8 More Customizations Update #1
(for you who have downloaded v1.7, reinstall the binary script then create new savegame for these to work. also BACKUP your GLOBALB before!)
> New Customizations:
- Brakes #2: Dark rotor with yellow brembo caliper (As seen on actual car)
- Interior #2: Dark blue seats and steering wheel (as seen on actual car)

- Attachments (Decals):
#1 - Castrol and BBS Badging (as seen on poster art of MW)
#2 - "BMW Motorsport", "Original BMW parts" Windshield, spoiler, and lower front bumper decal
#3 - Both of these two
- changed some parts naming, find an easter egg!

-1.7aqf - Quick Fix
> Small geometry fix on the cage, mapping fix on the Heat tail light.

> No Limits Rollcage (For more RL accuracy. If you happen to not like it, simply revert to v1.7's GEOMETRY.BIN. If you have installed v1.7 already, simply replace the GEOMETRY.BIN inside this mod into the game files. (you know where the path goes, lah!)

-1.7 Small Customization Update
>New, much more accurate #42 Vinyl made by Desanosan24.
>Added Bodykits

For those with low graphics I recommend going to scripts/UnlimiterData/BMWM3GTRE46.ini and set ForceLODA = 0 to 1
The LODs on the car have very narrow fenders and the wheels stick out

the version i want is the NFS HEAT version

Castiel (June 18, 2022 @ 19:02)
Can someone who already has the mod working, can you give me the link to download it? please

Castiel (June 18, 2022 @ 16:10)
when I install the mod, the game just closes, even though I copy the ''_Main'' files, the tire just disappears, what can I do?

VelocityGTR (June 11, 2022 @ 10:17)
Will you make the Carbon version?

Basically the same thing as this, but in Carbon
