So you want an M3 GT tray on your E36. Until now, your only option was to pay a lot of money for OEM mounting, some of which has gone to NLA status. MSportParts now offers a mounting kit that allows you to bolt your M3 GT tray to a Motion Motorsport underpanel. All the strength, increased tray extension (more downforce) and less overall cost compared to OEM parts.
Note: You must run the MSportParts Tray Strut Kit with this method of GT tray installation. This hardware kit and the Motion Motorsports underpanel will not work properly without the tray struts.
Please read over the DIY hosted on M3Forum to see the full process of installation.
