The irony is that you're pushing on an open door - I haven't read anyone suggest that the M156/9 is anything other than an incredible engine, especially the sound which is what you major on most in your comments.
It's difficult to even suggest that it's not iconic engine - it was the engine which transformed AMG as a brand, and it led to the M159 which is still used in GT3 racing to great success - not too bad for an engine which was introduced in a road car 14 years ago.
It's your vehemence and persistence in suggesting that "everyone" is unfairly criticising the engine that bemuses me and others. You must read something into comments that few others can see.
Vive la difference.
It is a masterpiece, I'm glad you concur.
