So cool. I've driven the short course at Bedford (was in Oxford for a business trip) in their track prepped M3. Had a ton of blast.
Also stayed at Lake Como during another business trip. Mind blowingly beautiful out there.
Have you considered switching out your shift knob with a ZHP one? THat was one of my first modifications on the M3.
