A 640i GC is $17K more base price than the equivalent 535i base. I think it would be reasonable to expect a 4er GC to have a base price $10K higher than a base 335i. That would get it up to $70K with options. Certainly much less than the 6 GC, which can typically flirt with $100K.

A 4 GC coupe might indeed compete in price with a loaded 535i. But so does a 6GC compete with a loaded 740i. The design is what will set each respective series apart.
