highyo, safety is made up by active and passive safety. Heavier is better from a passive point of view but worse from an active point of view. Yes i think my M3 has better active safety than the F10 and that it makes me better equipped to avoid a crash. If I have a crash I would be better off in the F10 but it's not as black and white as you make it sound like.
And I think you are probably the first to state more weight as one of the advantages with the F10...bmw has obviously succeeded in bringing in a new audience with the F10.
