It does if you're counting doors via the New Munich math.
Take two doors off a BMW 3 Series, and now you'll get the new BMW 4 Series.
From now on, all coupes and convertibles in the BMW range with be designated with even numbers, the sedans and Touring (wagon) variants will have odd numbers.
It is not just a ploy to charge more for 3 Series hardware, although the cynic (who,moi?) might be forgiven for thinking so.
The differences in styling, suspension, features and equipment on the 4 are considerably greater than has been the case for previous-generation 3 coupe models.
Around Lisbon Portugal and - as I type - at the former Formula One Race Circuit in nearby Estorial, we have been driving the 435i, equipped with the 3.0 litre twin-turbo inline six. We will also get the 428i with the 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbo; both will be available in rear- or four-wheel drive.
We won't get the 2.0 litre turbo Diesel engine, worse luck. Great torque, fantastic fuel economy - what's not to like?
We'll have more details on this car later in the week, and in next week's Wheels section.
