What would make this car special enough to warrent it over a 235i?

Are they calling he new iS cars Mx35i cars? (for a price premium?) This will be one of the first Mx35i cars to hit eh US shores and I hope its more than a tune and body enhancements, we deserve better. here's to hoping. And he's to hoping the M2 is not xdrive or 4 cylinger, automatic.
Also, yeah, I think that's how it's going to go for the US market. M performance will replace iS models. So we'll get-

228i
235i
M235i

If you look at the pricing/performance, I can't see the iS sticking around.
