Why? Because the boys at Toyota could build an incredible turbo inline6 10 years ago called Supra, then BMW, who's well known for their i6, has got to do it better for their iconic M3.
I started my BMW ownership in their creamy smooth I6, but i actually prefer a V6. I6 engines are naturally balanced, making them refine and smooth, but in an M car, those attributes are not so important. I wouldn't describe my S65 as creamy smooth. That would be inappropriate. V6 offers superior packaging advantage due to the reduced length, which if exploited in the initial chassis design, could either improve interior accommodation or reduce overall size.
