Here's one I'd consider.. but it is West Coast.. 3.0l, sports/5sp/ (supposed) LSD in Alpine white/red, low milage

This one is nice, if you want that blue color.

The only detractor is that they come equipped with the e30 rear trailing arm setup, which isn't that great. Also, certain colors make it look very much like a girl's car... (IMO)

I've driven Kessel's car, and was like .5 sec from my AS prepped 135i times, on my first attempt.

If you could verify the 3.0 M54 Z3 had a LSD.. that would be the car to get.
it does have a lsd apparently and if not, dinan sells one so I am sure others do too. the 2001-2002 z3 M roadster would be an awesome autocross car.

The M roadster features a 3.2-liter DOHC, 24-valve inline 6-cylinder engine with Double-VANOS "steplessly" variable valve timing, 315-horsepower, and 251 lb-ft of torque; 5-speed manual transmission; Independent suspension with M calibration; M RoadStar light cast-alloy wheels with Satin Chrome finish; near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution; Dynamic Stability Control; All Season Traction with limited-slip differential; Rollover Protection System, 4-wheel BMW M vacuum-assisted ventilated disc brakes, many other standard features. See the M roadster Gallery.

I would lean toward estoril blue, because the interior on that sucker is awesome. Or a silver with the red/black interior. badass

A good friend of mine just picked up a 99 m-coupe for 15k in Maine, that thing is fun as hell, i'd imagine it would be a handful at the track.

Get an M-roadster, it already has an LSD, it's not too expensive (Z3 version at least) and is fun as hell to auto-x. I have a 98 M-roadster, which I prefer because there are no valve adjustments (bc of S52 engine rather than S54 of 2000 on). The 98 also has no traction control (in 99 they added it for some reason) so there is no way you will start off your run with power being cut to the wheels when you forget to push the damn ASC+T button like on the newer models. Who needs traction control anyway? That's just not fun.

The way we class cars, you'd be nuts to get an M roadster. Andrew is in D class, and has a ton of room for mods.

I verified that the 3.0 ZSP Z3 does have LSD from the factory too.

The M Coupe/Roadster will put you in A, with barely any mods. Nice car, but not a good base to compete with.

Bring her over. You can use my truck to teach her to drive a standard. What do girls know, anyway!

A few reviews from 2001, and a handful of ads that state the car has an LSD.

My ex got a Z3 after he totalled his motorcycle on a first ride. My only objection was that it was bright yellow, but I still talked to him. It's what led me to getting Orca - I wanted a little room to keep a purse in. Maybe that's Megan's objection.
