5. Overall Weight
Weight savings were a main priority for BMW in developing the new M3 and M4 and it shows. The M4 Coupe has a DIN curb weight of 3,300 lbs which is around 176 lbs lighter than a comparably equipped previous model. Plenty of lightweight materials are found throughout both vehicles such as carbon-fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) and aluminum for a number of chassis and body components.
