Is this the same setup for all M cars? I wonder

The Supra uses electronically-controlled dampers made by Monroe that are marketed as Continuously Variable Semi-Active Suspension with external valve technology (CVSAe). These are twin-tube dampers with an electronically controlled bypass valve (yellow) that can soften the dampers (or not) over a continuous range of incremental steps every hundredth of a second.

The EDC dampers on F2x/F3x are multi-tube, the ones on the F8x M-cars are monotube.

So does Monroe make all BMW dampers?

Nope. The M-cars monotube EDC dampers are ZF/Sachs IIRC. The F2x/F3x are Monroe/Tenneco.
