Point being, the F8X M3/4 weighed less than its top non-M counterpart, the 340i. There is no reason to believe that trend won't continue with the G8X simply due to the fact that it will have aluminum sheetmetal and carbon fiber roof.
Its true, that is the trend. But, now you have XDrive in play, and thats a couple hundred pounds easy, plus the ZF and all the standard safety equipment. Id be happy if it stays even.

Most probably the "PURE" version with RWD and Manuel will be the lightest.
That's a good point, but as far as being lighter than the non-M the M340i also has XDrive and a ZF so they cancel each other out.
