For what it's worth, I autocrossed my mothers (!) Z3 2.8 last summer when my 912E was still undergoing suspension surgery. Her car is an automatic with all season General XP tires and is completely stock. I turned off the traction control, held it in second gear and ended up with second place in the combined A Stock and B Stock classes (mine was the only B Stock car there that day so they stuck me in A Stock).

Anyway, the Z3 is fun to autocross. I don't know about the four cylinder, but the 2.8 has enough grunt to rotate with the gas pedal. These cars feel subjectively light in the rear. I don't recall any terminal understeer. I had a good time, but I would much rather run a Porsche.
