Wrong.

If it's a true M performance model, like the m550d and others it will have a ton of changes and unique parts all developed by M.

Most notable of which will be hydraulic steering, totally diff suspension down to the ball bearings, springs, coils, wheels, tires, anti-roll bars, transmission shift program.

I don't know about LSD or DCT, but wouldn't be surprised.
