I don't know about that. I noticed the difference when I went from the lighter-weight Style 220M wheels to the slightly heavier Style 359M wheels on my E92M. And the delta between the steel and CCBs on the F80 is greater than the delta between those two wheels.
Do we know what that delta is? I remember reading in more than one place that the weight savings of CCB vs steel in general were wiped out on this particular car by the larger rotor size plus the larger caliper. Too lazy to look from my phone right now though.
