When starting a project like this, and if operating costs are the main driver for going for a less expensive dedicated track car, my recommendation is to look into the replacement/rebuild costs of a new motor for the different cars you are considering. The replacement does not necessarily need to come from the manufacturer. It could simply be a used motor your purchase on the market. All BMW M series motors are relatively expensive to rebuild or purchase new/used. And, don't just assume your motor will be fine.
