I agree. And not being able to get a E92 335 with M-Sport to remove the bumper was one of the determining factors of a few friends that decided not to get 335. I don't' know what happened with the available options this late in the product cycle. I could understand at the beginning of the cycle but not at the end where everything has been established for the model.

Do you remember what the price was for the coupe over the sedan? I want to see how much they charged with the E9X and how much more with the name change.

EDIT: Found it. Seems to be about a 9k difference between sedan/coupe. I thought they were much closer so the name change doesn't really make sense to me still. If it were say $3-4k difference in price and the name change would allow BMW to make it to the $9k it currently is I would say sure, makes sense.
