I did my first track day at CMP last year, as well as my first autox. I feel that the track day at CMP helped my driving tremulously in every way. I would recommend doing a track day as soon as you can. Some info in the link below. You will be in the DE class. They will have you remove everything from your car too, this includes spare tire and floor mats. You would certainly need some higher performance brake pads and fluid. On your car, at least carbotech xp10 but xp12 or equivalent would probably be better.
