As I've yet to receive my M3 yet, I can't comment on the car in specifics;however, if it's like all the other sliding caliper designs, it's not too bad...but I wouldn't do it at the track, at least not me.
My friend has a lift and I change pads the day or two before to bed them in and make sure the stock compound deposits are off before going to the track.

Yeah, the race-compound pads are loud and squeal like bloody murder, but that's what makes me switch them back when I return...or else I'd just leave them in all the time.
