Yes BMW states that the distribution is 52.2/47.8% for the sedan, but that is for a fully loaded/optioned vehicle. Now, take for example my car which has no DCT, no sunroof, no NAV/iDrive, no EDC, no heated seats, enhanced audio, plus no fold down rear seats, and all but the fold down seats weight savings is coming from the front half of the vehicle. I am willing to bet that in a this type of optioned M3, the distribution would be closer to 50/50.
