Miatas are cheap (both purchase price and consumables), fun, and competitive. Its the no-brainer go-to choice if you want to seriously autocross.

If your 328 has the sport package and/or manual transmission a stock IS350 won't be as engaging to drive, but it will be much quicker. Whether or not it is more fun is a matter of your personal...

Keep in mind that article is from 2009. Most of the tires in that article have been replaced with newer versions by now.

245 is fine as far as width goes, but a 245/40-18 is ~3/4 of an inch bigger in diameter as well. I'm guessing you'll be ok, or have very minimal rubbing at stock height.

You have really got a set of competing priorities.

No. All tire manufacturers have recommended rim widths for their tires, but 10mm wider on both ends isn't going to put you outside of spec for the vast majority of tires. I ran 245s on 8" wide...

First of all since you have an M3 for real high performance driving, I don't see the need for you to go bat-crap-crazy with the 250. For that reason I...

Seriously, your best bet for matching paint is a junk yard. If you can find the right color at a yard that will sell just the tow hook covers.

My 2 cents:

265/40 18 is pretty big for the front of the car. Bigger diameter, bigger width, without a-lot of work you are going to rub all over the place. I wouldn't try and track the car with...

It is highly unlikely that a 9" wheel with a 35mm offset is going to contact an IS250 brake caliper. I tried a 17x9 with a 48mm offset and it BARELY rubbed the caliper on my IS350.

That is a really big tire for the front of the car. 1.5" + bigger diameter, and almost an inch wider than the largest stock tire that comes on a 2IS. I would expect rubbing.
