Hi, guy.

Apparently, BMW told the testers 3,649 pounds for American versions. Car & Driver did their "in the field" corner weighting, and came up with 3650.

We'll see what the U.S. announcement brings, though barring some pretty big changes, I'm already ticked off. That's 235 pounds more than the E46, which was already porky - and that car was 235 pounds heavier than the E36, which in turn was around 300 pounds heavier than the E30.

Nasty stuff, weight. I've got that problem myself.
