I was in the same boat as well. I had 2006 e46 m3 with comp. pkg. for 3 years. Took it to the track about 7 times during this period and that car (stock) was one of the fastest in the intermidiate group.When it was time to return it (was leasing it) bmw wanted too much for 3 years old with more than 50 k miles on it. So i decided to get new e92 m3. But i chose to get another car that would be street/track dedicated for the same reason:e9x m3 is too nice, too heavy, too expesive for HPDEs. Now i have 2011 135i with DCT as my second car that will see hopefully a few track days a year. Tis car is ok in stock form but suspension is too soft for serious tracking. My plan is to modify suspension and if set up correctly this car can be as fast or faster than e9x m3.
