This was true for the E46, the E9x, and it will be true of the F80. They were never very serious track cars and to answer your question yes I have driven my previous E90 M3, 135i, and 328i on track and they were fine at 7/10s or 8/10s but anything more was asking quite a lot from a soft street car.
According to BMW M, the F8x will be the most track ready "standard" M3 ever.
