No need to get crazy over economics and blah blah

It makes perfect sense.

Small car
-1 series sedan and 1M
-2 series coupe and 2M

Mid size car
-3 series sedan and M3
-4 series coupe and M4

large car
-5 series sedan and M5
-6 series coupe and M6

larger car
-7 series sedan
-(8 series coupe) discontinued

I feel like they have finally "Fixed" their naming scheme since all of the larger cars followed the odd/even nomenclature for years.

A coupe 3 series has ALWAYS cost more than the sedan 3 series.
When the 4 series debuts, that price differential may go up slightly but don't expect it to go up that much.
