The 5-series, A6, and E-Class all make around the same HP as the M4. That doesn't mean that they compete in the same market, or are remotely the same kind of cars. The Ghibli competes with them, not the F80 or F82.

Apples and oranges.
It is priced similar to the cars you mention, but the back seat is 3 series size. This is the same size and proportion as an M3.

You guys may not know this, but when you buy other luxury cars they come with everything. You just pick the colors and it's loaded. If there is an option, it's something really bespoke like an alcantara trunk with custom luggage, or a $6000 studio sound system.
