The history of the MXXX nomenclature that you are referring to, used to mean something. Those were real M cars, such as the fantastic M635 CSI which was sold as the M6 in the US. The new MXXX models are only a marketing exercise.
Regardless of the name, it looks like it's a great car. Everyone else that has reviewed it seems to think so too. Personally, I dislike the front too much to be able love it as a whole.
