That is indeed 198lbs lighter than a 335 ...!
Dont bother, ppl here like to cherry pick their figures. Just wait till the car is released and have the car weighted.

Indeed. They use one weight for their European disclosures, and it's very very strict down to how much fluids are in the car. In the US they use any number of different "weights" they can vary by several hundreds of pounds. Just try and find the disclosure for the US weight and you will see what I'm talking about.
Does that mean the 3 series can be +100 or 200 more than advertised?
