It just leaves a bad taste in your mouth with how 'well' engineered everything is on the M models to them taking the easy way out.
This has nothing to do with exhaust note, just engine noise.

I don't mind this technology since it's the real live engine noises, just amplified.

Ask the M5/M6 owners. They don't mind and love how their cars sound.
