I think the difference in driving dynamics is more about the different philosophies between AMG and the M division. There's no reason this move can't lead to great M cars.
A quick google search brings up this article which says that Meyer "learned his chops working at BMW's M division and also racing BMWs." http://www.motivemag.com/pub/feature...k_Series.shtml
What was Meyer's role at AMG? Was he the "chief engineer of the black series programs?" If so that seems like a good guy to have. The black series' versions of the CLK63 and C63 are cars I'd prefer over pretty much any M car.
