    Hi all, just joined, bought an 08 z4 3.0si roadster in Febuary. Was dissapointed to learn my car is ineligible for the CCA driving school, but might hit an autoX event. Cheers, see you on the road!

    I feel your pain when it comes to using your ragtop on a track. I ran into that issue with my e46 M3 convertible and my z3 (evidently it safe for me to use in the real world, but not safe to use it in a controlled environment......).

    I'm in north jersey too, so if u spot a 2008 space gray M3 coupe shoot past you, honk.

    How do you like the AutoX? I have never tried, and honestly I have avoided it because the only one I have ever witnessed was a bunch of teenagers with Japanese imports at Giants Stadium.

    It really depends who is running the autox.

    At Giants Stad it is either Motorsports Northeast or Porsche Club NNJR.
    The last event I raced in was April 6th and there were over 20+ M3's - my 545i - a few Z4s and an M roadster - along with the rest of the non BMW's (911 GT3 and 911 Turbo) - 2Lotus Elise and 1 Exige

    They allow all cars to run but they will be classed differently.

    www.motorsportsne.com see their site to see what class you are in.

    Their courses are fast as they have a big lot compared to lets say the BMW CCA in Somerset Patriots stadium.

    I like the Somerset location because the courses are tight and great for smaller cars.

    Either way you can't go wrong -
