The performance ones seem to be lighter : around 24,5 kg each one (54,4 lbs).But from a German catalogue it seems that they declare only 3 kg less (6,6lbs) for each seating. I think we need an help for the translation from a German friend...:-)
As BMW-M-Mexico has pointed out, the seats do have air bags.

It's reiterated here that there are side-impact airbags, also the site mentions that the seats are heated... I couldn't find anything to suggest that they were significantly lighter than stock weight.
