        lightweight?

        Usually, a lightweight is a car with no equippement like leather, radio, electric stuff. Just like the Mitsu EVO's, you can get the RS edition wich is 200 kg lighter.

        I really dont know if BMW has done some M3 lightweight(or Motorsport). My own M3 was pulled out of the factory line as an empty shell and was hand build with group N specs, so it could be considered as a lightweight.2470lbs w/o driver and a full tank of fuel.

          Yes, they make replica's of the LTW wheels..

          However, they aren't forged,and probably aren't very light weight..

          They can be had for a decent cost...Check ebay..

              I am assuming you are talking about E36 lightweight wheels.
              The replicas do not say "BMW MOTORSPORTS", they only say "motorsports."

              And the real ones are forged, not sure on the replicas, but probably cast


              Hope this helps
