2nd run was a bit more difficult at an AutoX that was setup in a parking lot but it was last Sunday where Hurricane Sandy had left the area well very sandy. They brought in a street sweeper but did not help me as I was sliding around the place a lot. My times weren't too bad but the all wheel drives owned that day for sure. I am not sure about the results as yet because it hasn't been posted as yet.
That's pretty impressive as Miatas routinely to run circles around cars costing 2 - 3 times as much.
At our last autox, a guy with a bone stock e46 330xi was absolutely slaying folks with full track setups. There's definitely something to be said for AWD.

Whilst I do like the exterior of the e92, the interior is the regrettably the same ergonomic mess as the e90. Thanks, though.
