Take off the pig wheels that the 335i comes with and you can save 60+ lbs.

I really like the 162's. The rims themselves are pretty light. Its the runflats that weigh a lot.

Not true as measured and documented in the Wheels and Tires forum, by me, and confirmed by other members! S4 has it right.

The RFT's are only 1R, 2F lbs heavier each versus PS2's same size, the 162 wheels are 13F,15R lbs heavier per than my forged RG-R BBS same size.

Trust me, there is a night and day difference in feel between true lightweight wheels (<20lbs) and the 30lb+ 162's.

Does this apply to those of us w/ the 6spd AT? The delay I have been experiencing feels more like a stall-out than a hesitation during the shift from 2nd to 3rd.

That's absolutely right! Unsprung weight is a performance killer!

I only Test Drove the 6spd SportShift but I bought the 6-speed Stick shift, however I did felt that "Stall" when i tried to accelerate hard, but after i
holded down the DTC and disabled the DSC, w' a smooth start up to 10-15mph then i floored it, the "stall" feel had gone away.....

I might be wrong, but overal that Lock Valve applies only to Manuals I thnk.
