Dude i have a 318is and it weighs approx 2600 lbs, with a small inline 4. I know the 325is wieghts a couple of hundred more pounds because of the inline 6. People have said that the 318is handles better becasue of its lighter weight. I know that the v12 is gonna be a lot bigger then the inline 6 or 4 that the e30s came with. In such a light car, that much weight will throw off what is a nearly 50/50 split and then throw off the cars handling. I know what a couple hundred pounds will do the the preformance of a car, I have driven mine on the track and when the instructer was out it took 200lbs out of the car and it felt faster (and probably was) the whole way around the track. Granted you will kick the shit out of anything in a straight line, I like BMW because they can handle and I dont want to take that ability away, if i want to go in a straight line fast I would buy something else, like a mustang.
