The 335i could benefit from a lighter flywheel, driveshaft, wheels, etc...
The crank numbers for the N54 are underrated. And your statement is backwards. The difference in crank vs wheel wold show that the M3 could benefit from a lighter drive train since the loss is greater from crank to wheel. Thats assuming that the crank numbers are accurate for the N54, which I doubt they are.
