Not much since the existing hood on the E92 M3 is very thin lightweight aluminum with no sound insulation. However, the proper baseline is the F30 335i hood weight which will likely be steel. The total savings for each is on the order of 10 lbs, so about 20 lb total. Probably a very high price for only 20 lb savings. I think aluminum is much more likely than CF.
