And you already lost 200 lbs.

FACT: Its the lightest, most raw (least amount of driver aids + electronics) BMW currently sells..

I doubt you'll loose 200lbs with these mods. I may be wrong but you'll be closer to 150-180lbs. The other 170-200lbs will be much harder/more expensive as Devo mentioned.

Not only the cost, but what is the point of stripping 1M to the bare skin? If you want to build a track car there are way better platforms.

Let's face it: M doesn't make light cars anymore, it's a thing of a past. Calling 1M nimble, light, and raw is a huge stretch in my books.
