Now I know I'm REALLY going out on a limb here... but did you ever consider the fact that E46 is bigger than E36? E46 M3 is only 200lbs heavier than E46, or about 250 lbs more than E46 M3. That's not much considering how much bigger it is.

Now, if you want to save weight by getting rid of extra fluff like stereo, sunroof, power seats, AC, exhaust, I've got no complaints. Tell BMW! Tell your dealer!

But don't start bitching to me about how the E36 was lighter, while at the same time knowing than anyone who races them seriously puts another 100 lbs minimum of chassis parts to get the stiffness and strenth that an E46 M3 delivers from factory.
