I really didn't care either way what it's called but I did expect a little more premium feel from a car that I know will be quite a bit more expensive than the outgoing model. I thinking we will be looking at $60-65k for a fully equipped 435i M sport. That's a lot of $$$ for a 435i AKA 335i coupe my friend.
Agreed.

For sure, this interior does not belong in a $65-$70,000 car, much less in the $80-$90,000 M4 and M4GC. It is just OK for a $32,000-$40,000 no-option 320i/328i, nothing more.

If the idea was to create a premium Coupe then this ain't.
