BMW will offer the new 2er Coupe/Convertible & 4er Coupe/Convertible.

I believe it is marketing, however, not in the sense that a stripper 3er will be below a stripper 4er. I think the change is directed at people who don't understand the chassis nomenclature. E90, E91, E92, E93, get divided into a simpler to grasp 3 and 4. The names were beginning to get ridiculously long too.
2006 M3: Individual Blue Onyx on Black. MT

2010 135i: Crimson Red with Black interior.

2004 WRX: World Rally Blue. My track toy.
