I think it has a lot to do with color of most spy shots. Remember back when we see coupe spy shots first surfaced on the web, only until spacegray and white coupe spy photos came then we truly appreciate the lines and curves of the car. The larger CLS wheel with lower body stance also made difference on the PS from Alpine.

Standard E90 body is slightly wider than E92 coupe, about 1.3 inch wider. If BMW engineer made wider body in proportion both on sedan/coupe M model then the sedan tends to look a bit wider on the fender flare.
