The name brand of the 335i is being demoted to the equivalent of owning a 328i. Don't be ignorant. Regardless if the e90 335i can out perform the f30 335i the fact is that the 335i is now second in the line up of non Ms and this will effect prior 335i 's brand power.

This entices current 335i owners to get into the 340i. It is a marketing ploy.

BMW is constantly changing the numbers on the back of the car. There is NO reason for the top non M to be renamed to 340i other then to screw around with the pecking order.

To add i will not fall for their attempt to play with the #s to get me into the 340i. It's just the cheap attempt by BMW that insults me.

Audi on the other hand did NOT demote the the S4 in their line up.

Come on man your from NY you disappoint me.

EDIT to add the classy sarcastic .

Your post should have read; "Audi upgraded their S4 over their last model, why do you disagree with the way BMW handled the new model? What's the difference?"
