That latter is nearly an exact quote from BMW M on the cars weight.
weight quoted was based on the standard brakes per bimmerposts interview with BMW execs. it was also based on 90% fluids I think.

I'm thinking with full options, an M4 will be 3,430 at most, sunroof (est 50lbs), CCB (-18lbs per BMW execs), DCT (54lbs est. based on current E9x figures), HK sound (10lbs est based on standard vs. enhanced system on E9x), other misc options (10lbs), + full fluids (18lbs). Based on the e9x, I don't see the 18 vs 19" wheel would effecting curb weight.
