that e46 M3 would have been a great track car, so now you have to use the P car
You should buy your own helmet (or at least a head sock); not a big fan of sharing someone else's sweaty, smelly helmet
no special mods are necessary, especially the first few times out. you need to see how well your car handles stock and once you become a better driver, mods may be beneficial.
you'll need a tech inspection and I would recommend getting a brake flush done and solid pads
at our schools, instructors will ride with you until you can prove you are good enough on your own.
