I think they have discovered that it is far more profitable to make an MPE for the "right" to have your M car sound louder and more aggressive...IIRC there's different exhaust tuning between the base and ZCP F80, the CS has a different muffler and tuning, and I think the M4 GTS came with the MPE (although I might be wrong about that).

Not much different that the base and S versions of the Cayman/911 come with the "base" exhaust, but the GTS gets it standard...well, at least until the 718 came along, anyway.
