It appears repairable - but a shop generally isn't going to want to fool with a really little job. Try some more shops - but I wouldn't set price expectations ahead of hearing what they say.

You are on the right path - check engine mounts. In fact - check all bushings under the car while you are there.

Driving this car on the track has nothing to do with subframe mount issues.

Sure - thats your easiest path.

Make sure you clean and apply copper anti-sieze to the rotor locator bolts every time you pull a rotor. Finger tighten RLBs - do not torque.

With a DE in 6 days - I'd just install the -08s and bed them to the new rotors. You can drive -08s there and back - just don't follow closely on the street with cold pads.

The receiver antenna is in the mirror. When you cut off the antenna - wireless locking has no antenna. Maybe you rewired incompletely or incorrectly.

Use the door key lock.

A car is usually totaled when the repair cost is expected to reach 75% or more of the pre-accident value.

Good luck with this. At least you aren't injured. Injuries don't go away as easily.
