As Shakespeare wrote,
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

So it is with BMW's 3 series coupe, now being called a 4 series.
It's still on of the finest coupes on the road that mere mortals can afford.
Calling it the 4-series places it upmarket from the 3-series. The E92 and E93 were always offered with a more luxurious set of standard features than the E90 (bi-xenons, leather, etc).
