I also wish I could turn off active steering while at the track. Hmmmm, my wishlist is getting a bit bigger.
Maybe it would be best to just keep my car on the street and get a 350z or some other type of car I can destroy at the track.... all these choices!
I do agree with the comment about the higher maint & insurance fees for the M3. Those do play a factor in my decision as well.
In your first paragraph the answer is clear, the M3. But you did there for a moment consider a track car. The best, cheap one to consider is a Mazda MX-5.
