Autocross Prep / New Car Question

Hello all,

So I'd like to get into some autocross with my Z4 35i M-sport (Photos here)

I've auto-xed once before, but it wasn't my car.

Now that it is, I'm wondering if I need to do anything in particular for car set up. Can I auto-x on RFTs? Is there any prep I should do or make to the Z since it's still practically new and running on all OEM stuff?

I did a quick search but couldn't find anything specific for new auto-x drivers/cars.

I have the same car as yours, also stock, and on RFT's. The only difference is that I have the DCT instead of the stick shift.
I ran it in Autocross as is, and it was fine.

No doubt you can run it stock, but I wouldn't expect impressive times in this vehicle. While it is a pleasure to drive, tight and fast handling does not feel like a speciality. But, no doubt you'll turn heads and have fun.
