I'd probably get one with shorter gearing while you're at it. 3.46 or something mabye. Stock is 3.08 afaik, so with a 3.46 you'll be putting down 12% more torque to both wheels. Combine that with software and mabye a wee extra boost, and that will be one fun vert.

How do the e93's feel? I haven't driven the new verts, i know with e46 and even more-so e36, the lack of b-pillars and a roof make the whole car feel a lot less stiff. I wouldn't want to drive one of those with 450 ft/lbs of torque without some structural reenforcement.
eww... $3,000 is was too much to be able to do a sick donut. I'm definitely not going anywhere near that mod for the while!

But sadly, due to living in piece-o-shit Canada its been too cold to actually make any real use of the top (I've put the roof down and closed it to show people how it worked.... ooooooh aaaaah LOL)... but overall the car feels solid. it has zero wind noise (omg, my 325 was a mess with that), and feels like the coupes i test drove before driving the vert... so we'll see when i start dropping the top how it goes... to be continued... lol
