These specs are rather underwhelming. Plus I am limited to only 3 color options. Not exactly a no brainer here.

So does anyone know the official specs for the european weighing system?

Let's say if passenger, luggage, and 10 gallons of gas weigh 90kg, then the dry weight of the car is 1480 kg, or 3256 lbs (roughly). That's not bad.

And for those complaining about lack of power, let's wait for some dyno results. I wouldn't be surprised if it, just like some of the 135s, puts down the advertised crank horsepower at the wheels.

Obviously they would never commit sales suicide by advertising it as faster than the m3, but we'll see what the real deal is once the magazines get their hands on one.

That is too high. CarandD is guessing $43k. My personal guess is $45k.

That extra sheet metal are mostly just plastic.. as in the front quarter panels on the E9X M3 are plastic.

Why does it have an "overboost" function? It should consistently run a higher boost pressure or not.

So, these numbers sound like they roughly translate to:
~3461 lbs curb weight (Edit- this is wrong- it's actually ~3290 lbs).
335 hp
369 lb-ft with overboost
~75.6% of the price of an M3 sedan in Germany, so
~$41,882 MSRP US?

That a lot heavier than we were all lead to believe and quite a disappointment. My non-sunroof E46 M3 probably weighs less with its iron block engine.
C&D says the weight is 3300lbs.

If it's 3,300lbs it should feel fairly fast, looking forward to seeing the pics and eventually the pricing.

The specs suggest that they haven't really done anything more/different to the engine compared to the 'is' models. Weak.

I'd bet this thing probably has closer to 380hp. Its hard to fathom people believing its actually 335hp.

Yep: EU weight means:

- 68 kg for the driver
- 7kg for luggage
- 90% fuel

since me thinks that E87 tank has approx. 55 L capacity that would mean 50 kg
So in sum this translates to a dry weight of
1570 - 68 - 7 - 50 = 1445 kg ^= 3183 lbs
