You might be right about this one, but that's what ALL car manufacturers do. Also Mercedes sells different cars with the same engine but different power outputs. That's marketing. You can't sell an M5 if the M3 outperforms it AND is also much cheaper. Even if the M3 will be the fastest M, the spec sheets read:
0-100kmh:
M3: 4.8s
M5: 4.7s
M6: 4.6s

Either you accept this little game or you don't buy a perf car.
