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.
Oh I agree with you that given the F30's price, it should reflect that but all I was saying that it isn't/shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the 1, 3 and 4-Series all had similar aspects of the interior given the E82 and E9X similarities. In fact, in one of my earlier posts, I was down on the 4-Series interior because it's not really differentiating itself from 3 if we want to use the argument that the 4-Series should be something like the 6-Series is to the 5-Series. But as of right now, it's not direction BMW is heading, the 4-Series is simply just a 3-Series, renamed and with a higher price.
