Good job! You just discovered the very strict way in which BMW releasing the weights on the EU market. Guess what? Those are the weights that show the 80 pound difference.

You basically just linked something supporting what I have been trying to tell you. You will find no similar thing in the US for weight disclosures because there is none, they use whatever weight they feel like and don't tell you how they arrived at it. It could be; the car with no fluids, the car with part fluids, the car with full fluids a passenger and a kitchen sink. It's whatever marketing feels like on that particular day.
