So differend cars?

And weight, F30 have steel sub-frame and F30 rear suspension is all steel. Change material on aluminium potential weigth save 20-kg? It´s not enought, F80 still share same basic frame? whit F30 and it´s weigth is 1620kg. I think only choice to make e46 target weight is use lots carbonfiber. Maybe there is little suprise hope so.., i3 and i8 are coming 2013 and they got full carbonfiber body and Bmw may learn lots to make cf panels economically.
