New guy....need advice, is it worth using a 2000 323 sedan as..

the start for a track car build? I've been trolling for a while trying to gather as much info as I can about potential, mods etc. I haven't seen much on people using sedans let alone the 323.

I guess my real question, should I start with this car or will I quickly wish I had waited and used a M3 to start with. My concern is that spending the $ on a M3 will essentially use alot towards things I will be tossing or upgrading anyway.

The tricky part...the 323 would be a gift, it is the actual car I first took to Watkins Glen for my first HPDE, where I got a free trip to Skip Barbers school and then approached about truly pursuing a racing career. Needless to say I have a real job now and live about 20min away from VIR.

I don't want to get everything set only to kick myself I didn't start with a better platform.

thanks for all your insight.
