M is fine for the Pacific region BMW CCA schools, but spend a bit more and get a lighter one if you can. It will be more comfortable at the end of the day.

+1 on HP Autowerks. I recently switched from dealer service to HP, and Peter and Harold have been great with really careful, conscientious work. They caught things the dealership didn't even see.

The 350Z in the right hands is a very fast car. It's comparable to an E46 M3 on a technical track like Buttonwillow.

Thanks Terry. I found a couple of your posts on the old Phatnoise forum through Google's cache, and saw many of those issues (as well as the Perl script) mentioned.
