You need nothing but a car in good mechanical shape to autocross or attend a driving school. I suggest you run it stock at a few events before throwing money at it.

Run a whole season with what you have. Suspension will hide mistakes.

Me at Lime Rock Park in my then 16 year old E30 325i with the factory original 150k mile shocks/struts, stock non-sport package springs, stock 14 inch wheels with Falken Azenis RS tires, and disappearing clear coat



See the body roll? Much fun was had.
