4 Series Price Estimates?

So we know BMW is re-branding the 3er coupes as the 4 series.

Currently the base 328i coupe (E92) is sold at a $1850 premium relative to it F30 counterpart
For the 335i coupe the premium is a mere $100 more at $1950.

2013 328i:
Sedan - $36850
Coupe - $38700 ($1850 higher or 5% more)

2013 335i:
Sedan - $43150
Coupe - $45100 ($1950 higher or 4.5% more)

Some articles I've read estimate the base MSRP of the 428i to be right around the $40k mark. I imagine BMW will try to keep this number in the high $30s just to keep the leading price digit a 3.

So assuming the premium paid for coupes right now is around $2000, what do you think the premium will change to when the coupes are now going to be branded as the 4 series?

For an upper bound, the 528i comes at a $9100 premium relative to the 328i (sedan). The 535i is only an $8500 premium relative to the 335i, however.

I read somewhere some insider revealed BMW only plan to stay in the same price range. $2-3k extra.

Here it is:
"Rumor: BMW 4 Series Price Projected to be Just Over 2000 Euros More Than 3 Series"

Around 4500$, like the A4/A5 (unless the equipment varies).

after buying my wife's 335 and knowing what that cost me, I'm guessing the buyer is on the hook for about $54K when all is said and done.

I'm guessing that the 4er will be differentiated from the 3er in the same fashion as the 6 from the 5. Ergo, $4k+.

Maybe I'm just a pessimist though.

You're paying $90 a month through your company's plan no doubt. The premiums for a decent family plan are very expensive when paying for them as an individual.

Nope.
Brought it individually.
$90/month for my Blue Shield health insurance.
Must be because i'm single and have no wife/kids.
Really can't imagine having to pay $3k a month for it though.
