I'm keeping this car 100% OEM.
I got the car with the track package which includes Brembo brakes. I also got Recaro seats. I bought this car with the intention of keeping it stock knowing I would be dumping it in a year or two. Hence going with a cheaper car which is somewhat comparable to a stock M3.

I've tracked a lot of cars over the past years. However, I do not track my daily drivers. The M3 was a daily. This Mustang is my daily. I tracked the hell out of my 03 Cobra as well as my other "and" cars.

Good man. Doesn't make sense to mod then flip. Hell mods almost never make sense. Not sure where I'm headed next. Would like to add a z06 as a second track car possibly.

Mods make sense but it always starts with one little thing then next thing you know you have $20K invested and you will never get it back.

C6 Z06 are great track cars. They are affordable, fast, handle well, and stop with room to spare.

Tell me about it. I'm already more than 20 into my e46 for the track. If finances work out I want a higher hp track car as well like the c6 z06.

makes me sad seeing nice e92m3s being parted out. Comes that time when the model era has come to an end.
