These days car manufacturers are doing everything they can to save weight to increase performance. All types of performance; acceleration, braking, cornering, and fuel economy. Don't forget that the M3's fuel economy is used in the corporate average and there are some regulations/taxes that kick-in if certain numbers are exceeded. In Canada if the fuel economy is >= 13L/100kms then a minimum $1000 tax has to be paid. Fortunately the M3 officially comes in just under that (12.7 I believe) so no additional tax. Yippee! I going to guess that BMW used the CF roofed cars to come up with their fuel economy numbers.
