As to money-grubbing, that is the point of business and really the only point. BMW has never been more successful.
Even BMW will tell you that the previous gen M3 was not the fastest in it's price-range. That isn't the point; it is a balance of street with the ability to hit the track. Z28 is a monster, but there is not a huge overlap between people looking at M3/M4s and Z28s...very different cars. "
