That is pure marketing. It is just getting a 4-series badge, nothing is getting moved up scale.

BMW is definitely not the first car company to do this, this has been going on for decades.
They watched what Audi did with the A5 and they are copying

Upscale=we can charge more because the number is higher
It reminds me of when AMD was advertising their CPUs as 3200mhz + when in reality the CPU was running at like 2.66ghz
This user has been banned from the 4 series forum because he doesn't sing its merits like the admins want us all to
