After 8 years of ownership, I reluctantly let the 540i M-Sport go yesterday. As I type this I am waiting for someone to come pick up my go-kart. Selling one's toys is always a little sad. However, the up side is that I am replacing everything with a 90% track focused car.
I've been shopping for the last few days and have narrowed the list to about 8 cars.
From most to least expensive
BMW E46 M3
BMW E36 M3
My focus is really on the second half of the list. I once heard that you shouldn't track a car you can't roll up into a ball and not cry about. That pretty much limits me to the second half of the list.
Streetable (at least for the first year)
Potential for serious speed
Reasonable maintenance (time and cost)
Allow me to explain why most comments you read about the Singapore start are wrong... - Hi, I'm back. I had to jump in, for what it's worth, to explain why the response to the first lap crash at the Singapore GP was an even bigger clusterfu...
