    It's because in E90 there is more weight on back so it's exactly 50/50 , in E92 it's 49(rear)/51(Front).
    in GTS they tweaked everything , so i expect they got 50/50 too ,BTW GTS is a 2 seat sports car , a 2 seater E90 doesn't sound that good.

    50/50 or 49/51 does not really mean much of anything. They are close it will vary based on how much gas you have in the tank.

    I don't see how weight distribution reflects the chassis stiffness.

    it doesn't effect , but in terms of handling E90 is a better choice even though it's heavier

    It's only heavier with all the options. It's possible that a coupe can weigh more than a sedan. It all depends on options. For example, DCT adds somewhere around 40 lbs. -- greater than the difference in weight given for the coupe and sedan. A coupe with sunroof probably has a heavier roof than a plain top sedan. And so on.

    But, what evidence do you have for saying the E90 handles better? I've seen none. Times are as identical as two cars can be given driver and conditions. In fact, I've driven both the coupe (I have one) and the sedan M3 and even pushing them hard them they feel the same in terms of handling.

    Filter. No software changes that we've seen increase power. Charcoal filter is serious business.

    Not sure how it is in the newer M3's due to the airbox design but on the E60 M5 removing the charcoal filter could net around 10 whp.
