Great car - it's more fun then the M3 to drive for sure.. (and it's holding it's value quite nicely, unlike the M3..)
Upgrade to a 3.73 rear diff from an E30.
Fun at all engine speeds!

And I'm still only sitting about 3200 at 70 in 5th.

Makes 2nd gear SOOOOOO much fun.

(I'm in an S54 Roadster).

Of course, that site didn't exist when the question was asked, 3.5 years ago.
