I see nothing wrong with this if it allows the traditional M models to be focused on even higher performance and being better than ever.
I understand what you mean and it's definitely BMW's way of following Audi's S Line models, but the "M" name is just being used a lot by BMW on their new model lineup nowadays.

It's basically a 135i acquiring the N55 engine from the 335is, so IMHO 135is sounds better.

^^^My point exactly man!^^^

M750iL sounds like a motor oil blend. LOL! Hahahaha.
Isn't the 335is powered by the N54? Isn't the 135i already powered by the N55 now?
