Also in response to ^.

Directly from BMW documentation:

Unladen weight EU in kg:

335i: 1615 kg (3560 lb)
435i: 1600 kg (3527 lb)

Both with 6 cylinder and automatic/DCT transmission

The only way I can see that the 4 series is lighter than the outgoing 3 series is comparing 325i, 6 cylinder, MT vs. 428i, 4 cylinder, MT. The numbers in those cases are: 1505 kg vs. 1450 kg. But that isn't really apples to apples. It is because those are the most base models possible but it isn't because we want to know if the vehicle itself (independent of the engine) is providing weight gains or weight loss. The answer is clearly GAINS.
