This is a first that the M version of a vehicle will have a different chassis code?

The E90 3 series sedan was still called an E90 M3 and the coupe and convertible was the E92/3 M3 just like the 328 and 335

I had the same questions when I started looking into the new models some time a go, but it does seem to be the case that they decided to give the M3 a different model designation, it will be the same case in the coupe models....there's been a lot of discussion on this, evidently there is so much different that they decided it needed its own delineation.
