Uh no. There never was a 5 series coupe. So splitting the 4 from the 3er is something totally unique in their recent history.

And the 6er has a more powerful (tuned) version of the N55 than what you get in the 5 series. So again, it stands to reason that the 4 I6 coupe will be more powerful than the equivalent 3 series sedan.
