Make it lighter - great. The motor can stay as is as far as I'm concerned - tune it up a bit if you want for 600+ hp and we're good.
If the AWD version is 200lbs lighter the RWD version will be 400lbs lighter.
Exactly! But they should offer an AWD version for those who want one. Like those who live in rainy or snowy regions.

With the E60, it seemed to me that when you went from a 550i to an M5, while the leather and the sat-nav were the same, underneath, it was a completely different mechanical driving platform. With the M550i and F90 M5, that vast difference isn't really there.
