it's all in the marketing. there are a lot fo little things like that with BMW. like the 540 it is actually a 4.4L and the X5 with the same exact engine isn't a X5 4.0 but it is a X5 4.4
but 99% of all that kind of stuff is for a marketing reason.
just like the 318 is really a 319
and a old 528e was really a 527
or the 325e was really a 327
or the 1997 540i is really a 544
bmw's history is full of things like that.
the 325is on e36's is a 2 door but doesnt necessarily have sports package, whereas a e30 325is is also a 2 door but does have the sports package.
it (touring wagon),
is(sports package, or 2 door),
it goes on forever.
year to year they rarely are able to descide on keeping things like that the same
