On the bright side. Porsche - there is no substitute.
Both great cars that I would love to own! haha More likely the Macan at this point than a M2.. My wife would not agree to a M car right now. haha

Dinan isn't factory warranty
No MPPK for M50i

M50i and X5M does not look anywhere close to identical even if you get a quad exhaust on the M50i

Comfort is important for a daily driver. I agree with you on that.

This has been a never ending debate. M is more than just bumpers and exhaust. look at all the bracing they did to stiffen the chassis, Seats, brakes etc. Drove the M50i and they are not even on the same planet as proper M cars.

This is so true. While I took a tour of the Munich factory, I asked the tour guide about this exact thing. They showed how the parts internal to even the engine are different, and not to mention the parts for suspension and other components. He made it very clear to make a non M car a full M you would end up simply rebuilding from frame out.. I know a bit sale pitch but you can identify within the factory the M spec and well the rest are all the same. Even the parts bins are different colored for M cars.
