I'm all for them keeping the weight down but I'm really wondering how. Cars keep getting bigger and bigger. I mean just look at the difference between the original M3 and the e90/e92. As much as comfort is a plus I hope they don't increase the overall size of any of the cars in the line up and actually I hope it shrinks slightly. I know we Americans are fat asses but comon.
It would also be cool if they could offer some kind of map switching like in the current M cars but instead of power/sensitivity settings how about an extra lean economy map for highway cruising etc. That could help bring down emissions.
Either way... I'm hoping that new "M Coupe"/1series lives up to the hype and is a true 2002 parallel (cause I'm too young to have ever experienced one of those).
