In Reply to: So let me get this clear the E46 M3 & 528i weigh.. posted by William Wallace on November 19, 2000 at 10:50:46:
Yes, we'd all love it if the M3 was lighter. Go ahead - decide which features you want to throw out. Skip the fancy rear differential? Save a few pounds. Toss the big brakes and wheels? Plenty to save there...
There are even some options on the M3 which you can leave out. For example, my car will be ordered with no moonroof which will save me maybe 50 to 60 pounds in glass, motors and roof reinforcing. Same can be done with power seats.
And no, we don't know what options that official 3400 pound figure goes with. When they start shipping the actual cars (wait wait wait), some of us can take them to a scale and we'll let everyone know.
