Secondly, the M4 will be lighter than the new M3.. (notice cf roof..?), which is lighter than the e9X M3. That is not hear-say, but fact!
I'm not disagreeing but what's the source for the M3/M4 weight being a "fact"? BMW has, in fact, gotten porkier every generation. I'm not debating that they may get lighter this time around but everything I have seen has been speculation.
