This is incorrect and I blame MB (AMG mainly) for perpetuating the idea.
Just because they throw more crap at it doesn't make it better. The newest M3 is arguably proof of this. Most AMG progressions are scientific proof although the fact a lot of them weren't good in the old iteration doesn't help.
One of the gentlemen who had a heavy hand in the E30 and E36 M3 once joked that the 2006 M3 was going to have 550 HP, weigh 4600 lbs, cost 100K and have a TV in the trunk or something to that effect. I think Mercedes took this comment as advice.
and I will now stop ruining a clothing thread.
