That is a very good point. I believe the competition is getting closer and closer to parity and it is no longer a blowout when an M is compared to an AMG or RS car. I agree with each generation it will become more difficult to improve upon (from a purely numbers perspective), but if I were an engineer on the M team I would be pushing very hard knowing that more and more companies are in my rear view mirror. It's not going to get any easier and expectations are high.
