It turns out that our rear bumpers have two 32lbs cast iron weights in the rear bumper at each corner. The reason is so BMW Marketing can claim 50/50 weight distribution. You can remove the rear bumper and pull off the weight.

As loosy goosy as the back end feels at speed I would feel very uncomfortable removing any weight from the back end. I've noticed the car feels more stable with even additional weight in the trunk.
