How does the 130i perform / handle on track?

Hi guys,

I'm currently looking to buy a 130i this wkend as fancy a change from my TT that has been set up for the track and before I take the plunge wanted to see how the 130i performs as on the good old google searches I keep getting different reviews.

If you guys can help I would be really grateful.

Thanks guys!

Matt

I've seen a few setup for track work with the standard stuff: LSD, shocks/springs(or "coilovers"), pads or 135i front calipers and pads.
Wheels/Tyres.
Bmwp- intake/zorst/(brakes?)
Remap.
