Comparatively speaking, it's easy to swap over suspensions, a diff, etc. than to swap an engine.

One reason why IMHO, it's hard to justify a 1M vs. a 135i (well, at least at used-car prices).

Now all BMW is doing is turning up the boost on the "regular" engines.

Yet, that's not reflected in the price. Before you were paying for a special engine.

Agreed. the difference between an e46 (or e36) m3 versus any other 3 series offered was completely staggering and worth the price increase for the performance alone, and the niceties of better interior seemed to come as icing on top. Not so much any more with their crap m line garbage and directions like this.
