My Ride: 2002 325i
Question Part-time racer

I own a 2002 325i (sport package, manual trans) and have been taking it to a few autocross events. I have even taken it to a track day at a local track. I would like to add a few things to make it slightly more competitive on the track, yet still be enjoyable for every day driving. Since I am still under warranty I obviously do not want to void that. What does anyone reccommend for me to enhance my car slightly for the track without voiding warranty?

well since almost anything voids your warranty now a days I think you should invest more in yourself take many schools and get more practice. Not that I think Im the most experienced person here but I have been tracking for 12 years now and I have seen almost everything and had my experience just as most of you first timer did, and I must add that the best mod was practice. Even now when I go to the track I see your typical rich kid in a super fast car (ferrari, Lambo, and even supped up M3's) gett passed by way slower cars. To fast of a car with very little experience can be disastrous as well. So the best MOD is go to the SKIP BARBER driving school or Derek Daly in las vegas and that alone will take a good 4 seconds off your lap time. Now if you want something for your car get a Nice set of light track wheels. Those will help the acceleration and cornering of your car and you might even consider some R-Compound tyres...My .02 Cents...Good Luck...
