The E9x broke the mold, it got a V8 and picked up a lot of weight -- Seems to be another complaint among purists, that this gen's M3 is too civilized and needs to be put on a diet. The F30 3-series has already shown that its lighter than the outgoing E90, so I'm sure the F80 M will be substantially lighter too.

And I'm sure at highway speeds is when the 335 can showcase its power advantage.
s65 was 15lbs lighter and shorter than the s54.

you still havent answered the question.
