Nice find Jay. Yes that is a regular 3 series coupe with some good accessories to make it look like a M3...seems like a used import,dont see why someone would import this when the new versions out already.
Is the porsche a GT3?

No the 911 isnt a GT3. Its a 997 Carrera S with an optional spoiler. I've seen those M5 style rims on a Z3 here in Chennai like on that 3 coupe.

Seems like a normal 3-series coupe with flashy rims & a 911 Carrera S with optional GT-3 wing.

Nice pics, good find....very few 911's. And thats a normal 3 Series. And he's put M3 wheels and badges on it. Nice condition.

To understand the difference, perhaps this will be of use:

Hey Gordon i've read your above thread hence was able to tell it was a 3 series, else as soon as i saw it, i thought it was an M3...

Both the cars were in good condition and the Porsche was a stunner...

yup....the high boot line gives it away....

I am not too sure abt it being an M5 though.... I think it is a regular 5 Series...

probably the only hint of it being an M5 is the dual exhausts

Undoubtedly M5.
Quad exhausts and rear bumper are M5 type.
