i maybe i dumbass but this mod made the gtr strassenversion/street version steer WAY TOO MUCH (max upgrades)

like really too much especially once it goes off road.

even just a slight nudge to either side it has a big chance to make a really hard turn.

to fix this i had to use the addon tuning mod from 2017

the visual upgrades stayed which was real neat.

unsure if the modernization patch caused it or this mod since ive yet to try one without the other (lots of mods already installed and its a hassle)

I just wanted to leave a little "thank you" for making the extended customization stuff optional. I personally didn't much care for it, so being able to have the whole car and all features without it is awesome.

May I ask where to find Moto-GTR vinyl for BMW M3 GTR Strassenversion

Hi can you add an option in your next Update for your cars to add the m3gtre46 stock rims and spoiler in extra custimization for all other m3 models?

Not sure if these were intentional or not but there are some odd things I find with this mod:
The headlight glow is a lot dimmer
The stock wheels are darker
The hood mounted heat extractors and radiator vent became shiny, almost looking like stickers
The chrome kidney grill textures aren't that consistent when changing hoods. It switches between being a flat shaded texture, a flat unshaded texture, or a 3D model

It's nice being able to change the parts on the car but these bits have been bugging me
