This same question comes up every couple of months. BMWNA, who controls the US market, decided some time ago to differentiate the 3 and the 4 by making the 4 a more upscale model. The F32 4 had merino interior options. The F30 3 did not. Similarly, the G02 X4 has merino interior options, but the G01 X3 does not. And I expect that we'll see merino options when the new 4 is introduced in the US in a few months. It's just a BMWNA/US thing. Go figure . . .
