40 lbs of unsprung weight removed is a somewhat noticable difference.
The F10 rotor hats will be aluminum, so my guess is they will be pretty light for steel rotors.

I just don't understand the logic behind paying for ceramic brakes. I know a lot of racers (race a Porsche myself), and nobody uses ceramic brakes. Nobody. So why would you need ceramic brakes on a street car? I just don't understand the reason that you would want them on the M5.
