Any good reason why they did this?
Yes,

The newer f20/21 is a newer model, it's more insulted, more refined, has less NVH and conforms to newer EU legislation.

The M Perfomance division who helped developed the car (Hence the M Badge) felt the interior noise of the engine didn't give the driver enough involvement or feedback.
They decided to go with a high tech sound symposer as they had with the M5.
