based on the e46 18 inch wheels I bet the new 19's weigh LESS.

I may get 18"s btw bcoz of

1. cost savings in MSRP
2. I like the way it looks in Graphite or Space grey color
3. I can always get the 19"s as takeoffs from someone upgrade to market market in a few years
4. or may invest in BBS or CSL type wheels in the future.
5. I've had those wheels on my e46 M3 and Im tired of it

actually I am just as happy to know the difference in wieght between the two WITH tires. that is actually more important. why get lightweight wheels if the same brand tire in +1 size is 8 pounds heavier.

18's do look really good in person, and especially when dirty with a lot of brake dust on it.
