I used to track my Cayman S before getting my '09 135. The stock handling was horrible, and I was pretty disappointed. I replaced the runflats with Michelin PS2 (225/245), put in the BMW performance suspension, and changed front and rear sub-frame bushings to M3s. Now it's pretty decent handling and the ride on a daily basis is good. Only one day at the track, and it still pushes a bit, but it's much, much better. A square setup would, of course, be better. It's not a Cayman, but it's fun and it wasn't too expensive. In the Porsche, I was in the White run group, so I don't push the car as hard as a hard core driver, but I can make it around the track near the top of my run group.
