Time to find a new shop.

I get that too when i take my 1990 E30M3 or my 1994 NSX to the track. Hopefully you are not going in with that mindset (abuse or destroy). M-cars are built for the track and really the only place where you are going to even remotely come close to their true potential.

People have told me that my car is “too nice” when I take my LSB to the track. Reality is pretty much everything can be fixed and replaced and driving the M on track is just too intoxicating to ignore.

Plus a lot of track cars are less “ruined” then street M’s because they’re well taken care of.

Agreed. From my experience, cars that are tracked are usually maintained with better parts and have better service history.
