Simon,

I've been all over the m5board. It seems like an overwhelming vote for the Evolve Alpha-N, apparently the alpha-n conversion really improves the car a lot. Haven't found one single negative...

For the record... ordered some Dunlop Direzza Z2's for my 240z autox car. They were also under $500/set, and they're all the rage in the SCCA right now.

Has my CDV been removed?

For the life of me, I don't see one. Thought the car was stock, unmodified when I got it. Certainly no ribbed fitting that resembles the modified Zeckenhaus CDV that I bought... am I just missing it??
