As an experienced driver, I have to be brutally honest with you. The 335is was a very poor choice for a track car. Since you are already experienced, you can just throw on the mods now, so you can start to adjust to the way it drives on the track right away. You'll need the following to even begin to partially mimic the way the porsche drives on the track, and even then, keep in mind that this vehicle will give you a lot of headaches, and perform poorly at the track, especially during the summer months:

1. complete M3 suspension conversion (control arms, sway bars, rear subframe bushings)
2. KW coilover suspension, or at the very least, Koni yellow shocks
3. cross drilled rotors, and upgraded pads
4. Limited slip differential
5. After market oil cooler (Stett, or ER)
6. cobb AP or other flash tune
7. FMIC, catless Down pipes, Cat back exhaust (optional), Intake or upgraded filter, 02 sims for emissions
