What will I pay in car insurance for my BMW 335i sedan?

What coverage amounts are included in this quote?
This estimate includes liability coverage for personal injury, with limits of $100,000 and $300,000 respectively, and $50,000 coverage for property damage. While far above all state minimum requirements, these coverage amounts (100/300/50), are certainly reasonable for a prestige automobile like the BMW.
Additional coverage in this estimate includes collision and comprehensive, each with a $500 deductible, uninsured motorist coverage of 25/50, and $25,000 medical coverage.
The average insurance cost assumes the principal driver has at least six years experience behind the wheel with no violations or chargeable accidents, and is less than 65 years of age. The quote also presumes that the vehicle is for personal use and being driven in a typical city/suburban setting.
It is important to note that car insurance costs can vary greatly from city to city and state to state. Not all coverage may be available in all areas, such as no-fault or uninsured motorist. While all states have minimum insurance requirements, most drivers will select coverage values that are significantly higher, in order to better protect themselves in the event of an accident.

Why is the insurance cost so much different for a BMW 335i Sedan versus a BMW 335i Coupe?
Though the $44,100 sticker price for the Coupe is only slightly higher than the $42,050 cost of a Sedan, auto insurance premiums can be much higher on average. Four-door Sedans are more often associated with families while the two-door Coupe is more likely to be driven by a single male, putting the car at a higher risk for accidents or other mishaps.
