I guess the way BMW are looking at it is existing 3er customers won't stop buying the 4er just because of the name change and they can now attract new sales with the image change.
True, Audi didn't have a real coupe for a long time until the A5 arrived. I guess this is more of a rebrand, rebadge deal for BMW.
