The question asked was why the Coupe costs more than the Sedan. No one said the Coupe loses money, just that the Sedan will always make more. When you have two identical products and one outsells the other 3:1 the production efficiencies allow the more popular version to sell at a lower price.

BMW isn't being greedy. From their perspective, every Coupe sale could have been a Sedan sale, have to keep the margins consistent.
Do you work for BMW in a capacity that would enable you to know what the cost differences and profit margins are in producing a sedan versus a coupe?

Where did you get the 3 to 1 sales figures?
