favorite brand in eastern europe, because it tackles rain and snow during a heist.

The BMW isn't light by any stretch of the imagination. It's two tonnes plus once the driver hits the pedal.

By the way, the 75 kg guideline for EU is based on the average male driver weight. Multiply by .9 for female driver weight (no sexism intended, it's all for scientific purposes). The skinniest adult female (75 times .9 times .6 = ~40 kg) professional driver would get the best results out of any car.

The 2018 M5 officially weighs 1855 kg, so 1855+40=1895 kg, ala the lightest Euro-spec M5

"The 2018 M5 officially weighs 1855 kg" according to whom? That is most likely the unladen weight which means without fuel so it's somewhere between dry and kerb weight. Yet more ambiguity which is prevalent in this bullshit world.
