Good questions. I'm not sure what the weight will be, but I too look forward to driving them both. Frankly, I'm excited about anything that improves efficiency without compromising power, and am very happy to see BMW bring a petrol alternative to the US. I too would love to see a diesel in the E91 (and the E61 for that matter).
