They floated this idea before the last cycle changeover. I don't think it'll happen.

^ Before the one before that, too. E46 coupes were almost 4ers.

I see the marketing appeal. A customer is more likely to buy an A5 as a replacement to an A4 as they see it as a different car. Then again, I think 3-series as a title holds too much weight to let go. We'll see.
