We keep talking weight which is great, don't get me wrong. But aren't inline six's inherently heavier than a V8 due to the crank? That's what made the E92 M's V8 lighter the the outgoing E46. Say this is true, that the 6 is going to be heavier in the nose (worse spot) then where is the weight going to be saved? I thought the cars over all dimensions were slightly bigger and that means more of the plastic reinforced carbon being used, which is sweet but I know a concern of mine would be sacrificing a quality feel in the name of weight. Ever see the Audi commercial where the guy closes the door with that comforting "thud" and the car falls out of the tree? We Beemer owners are gonna be getting that with thinly made body panels
