I have a 04 S and it's my daily driver. I also track and AX the car
Currently mine is bone stock, just better tires.

Maybe I have just been lucky, but other than oil, tires and brakes, the only service the car has needed is a water pump (~$320 for parts and antifreeze and DIY), motormount (~40 and DIY), and a clutch (Parts and labor $1000).

I have put approx 30k miles on the car since I bought it in Mar 2014
While some of the modes mentioned are a good/great idea, if you are starting out or don't have a lot of track time, you really don't need to do anything to the car for the track other than brake pads and fluid and even that may not be necessary depending on how hard you drive.

Before doing any mods, if you plan on competing, you should read the rules of whatever organisation you will run with as well as what class then car would be in
