Well you have to understand that BMW needs to test and produce the cars for a variety of situations (from arctic cold to dusty desert). Given that the M car is designed for a wide range of uses and a wide customer base, BMW needs to be extremely conservative in terms of what they use as far as performance related upgrades. They also need to take into account emissions when designing the intake which varies by country and even by state.
