The same model has a much lower price tag in the US than elsewhere in the world. Unless you can offer your own math to dispute my contention, for example if you think BMW will cut cost on the 320i, making it much cheaper to manufacture than the 328i. Otherwise the $4k lower price will hit profit margin, there is no way around this.
