Indeed true for many. But at least for a long time M's exclusivity was backed up with proper driving dynamics compared to the AMGs which were more coarse and brutal, less finetuned, more like just regular Mercedes on steroids. Now however the irony is AMG is catching up with M's driving dynamics on top of being a plentiful and diverse range selling in large numbers across the lineup. So the 'M exclusive' fanboys are losing their moral highground, while BMW now has lots of work to do to keep the quality up while increasing the quantity.
