So the idea of pushing a 1-Series-like interior to the $90,000 bracket is simply absurd. I think that very few buyers would have bought a $70,000+ E90/E92 M3 with an interior that looked like a 1-Series; I would have not. And what makes it even more absurd is that the whole idea of a 4-Series is to charge more than the 3-Series... but with the same crappy interior and less doors.
Well to be fair, the E82 interior is very similar to that found of the E92...

so even if the F30 interior remains the same for the M3/M4, it wouldn't be too different from what we saw in the EXX chassis.
