Unfortunately the E90 is too big and heavy to be competitive at autocross. Smaller cars dominate due to the sharp corners and quick exit speeds needed in autocross. You can carry momentum better. Big high powered cars spin their power away with wheel spin or work the tires too hard.

Here is one of my autocross runs from last year. I get tail wagging every time I try to put my foot down. I am using the Normal throttle setting.
Wow that's nice, I would have got lost lol

They handle really well. Very toss-able. On top of that, they're cheap to buy, bulletproof, parts (stock and mods) are cheap and plentiful. They're basically the perfect car to buy if you want something that you can ride hard, put away wet and not feel guilty about.
What about bigger tracks? Like the autobahn in Joliet Illinois? That's my local track so that pretty much my only option.
