I brought up equipping the 335 tested with the M-Performance wheel. Granted I hate it's looks and I think 20's are silly on a 3 series, BUT, the stock 18's are about 27lbs and the 20's being a Forged 1pc wheel, lets guess they are 22lbs. That is a near 20% reduction per corner before factoring in tires. This was all traced back to equipping the 335 properly for this test which BMW dropped the ball doing.

E36/7: Dinan/RMS stage 2+ blower@11-16lbs of BOOST! 18" BBS LM's, too much more to list
F30: 6mt, SOLD

'06 Saab 9-5 wagon 5mt LSD, clipped turbo, 19psi, 400ft lbs of tq
