No it still doesn't make sense. The f20 doesn't have to undercut the f30 by that much, they could still make a decent profit on it. And, on the flipside, I don't think it will cut into f30 sales either b/c it is smaller and a wagon.
I, for one, would gladly pay over $50K for this M135i if it turns out to be what it seems to be. I think the real reason BMW doesn't bring this over is b/c of the disaster experiment that was the 318ti e36. I think those poor sales burned bmw as far as entry compact hatches/wagons for the american market. We are still suffering today.
