Sure the panels might be arranged differently but you can tell that it's it's was designed in a similar way to reflect the character of both car which is supposed to be more sporty than luxury.
The problem with your argument is that once you cross a certain price bracket the expectations of what you are getting for that price must match that price.
That's the reason that a 528i interior is much nicer than the $5000-less 335i. The same 528i interior must be as nice at $50000 as at $100000 (M5).
The F30 interior is not a $70,000 interior. It is not even a $50,000 interior. That's the problem.
