but certainly, we won't argue that the m coupe at 3175 is not light, right? and that an m3 200 lbs. heavier than its predecessor is not light, right?

look, when i think of the cars on the road that weight 3400 pounds, my stomach turns. that's familymobile territory. like our saab 9-5 wagon's weight.

the idea is to engineer weight loss into the vehicle. but, clearly, market share won't allow that here.

so, yeah, light is relative. would you call the 911 or the modena heavy? relative to an acura integra, yes. compared to an e36 or e46 m3? light. compared to an M5? light. to a z8? light.
