If you are talking about AMG, then yeah, all they do is put in a larger engine and brakes with stiffer suspension, that's it. But M is different, or is supposed to be different.
you just proved his pt rt over here.

in terms of Worldwide sales. Both BMW X5M and BMW X6M outsell the M3 Sedan. The current E90 M3 Sedan will be gone before the end of the year.

The BMW X5M and BMW X6M have their market and have proved to be successful especially for emerging markets where luxury products are in demand.
Surprisingly the X6M is favoured by the female demographic in China.
For them it is an ideal sports car.

I'm really surprised by the low M3 sedan sales.

Well I'm not happy with some of BMW's products either like that freakish GT.

But I'm saying how should he know? Does he work at BMW? People here make grand assumptions without really knowing how M works. Does he know what really goes on inside M? Has he actually driven a X-5/6M? I am betting not.

And now we have a 1 M that is supposed to satisfy the hardcore group, but judging by these responses, I think there is no satisfying them.

So what's the problem with BMW making an M model of every chassis? So many whiners. If they make one M car that you are in the market for then who cares if they make a dozen or even three dozen that you don't like? If they don't make a single car that you like currently then the fact that they are making M versions of nearly all their models simply ensures that if you like any BMW model, there will be an M version that you would want.
