Point taken, though the GTRs in Japan are speed limited to 111mph until the GPS detects it's at a race track and then raises the limit. So they have to expect some form of tracking/abuse.
Someone's comment about BMW not replacing things due to excessive wear seems like the best compromise, but who knows. I guess the safest thing to do is not tell your dealer you're tracking the car!
