I agree with all of the above. When I first read the OP's post I thought, "Two very different kinds of cars."

There is a movement to ban gender specific pro-nouns. I'll have to stop imposing my gender normative values on my car by calling it "her" and "she".

The first time the hill holder engaged on my 325i I thought the brakes were malfunctioning. Perhaps a sticking brake caliper.

I also vote for brushed metal. Black trim in a black interior gives the car a coal bin vibe.

What you are interested in is "curb weight". That is the weight of the car when empty of passengers, cargo and fuel. The M3 sedan weighs in at 3680 lbs.
