But then, I don't have...
I'd seriously just get a lightly used E90 M3 before I'd bother with this. Thanks to EDC, the days of the M3 being less "livable" on a daily basis is a thing of the past.
I liiked the Z4 M Coupe from the get-go, and still think it's a beautiful car. Others I also really like, still in production: BMW E92 3-series coupe Audi S5 Audi TT coupe Chevrolet Camaro Porsche Cayman S Used, there's all sorts of stuff out there for under $80k. I think that would get you an Aston Martin V8 Vantage or Bentley Continental GT nowadays.
^I had one a while back. I had romantic notions of being a novelist and wrote my first manuscript ("The Cain Principle") on one. It was cool, sitting there day after day cranking out the pages with a homey clacking from the typewriter, the satsifying "ding!" as I finished each line, the pauses filled with changing ribbons and loading fresh pages. Unfortunately, I lived in a studio apartment at the time, converted from a girls' school dormitory, so the rooms were tiny...

I always chuckle when people bring up the handling to justify the .1% of buyers who may take their Porsche to a track 1 day a year. People don't buy these cars for the "handling". Pretending so is just plain silly. Again, you could say that about anything. State of...

But no modified car will ever have the fit and finish of a production car like this, because the Porsche turbo has been built by dozens (maybe hundreds) of talented professionals with considerable resources at hand. You're not going to...

I bought my M Coupe new and plan to keep it until I'm so old I can't get in and out anymore; for that reason, I wish they'd offered leatherette. The BMW vinyl, like Mercedes-Benz's, lasts and looks good forever. The leather, not so much.

Which is likely the real issue - because you had your own insulation, you didn't learn how to dress properly for a Chicago winter. Get a decent coat and some gloves, maybe wear a sweater, you'll be fine.
