I was basing it on a similar weight reduction of the E87 vs F20.

I figured roughly a 140lb weight reduction for the new 2 series replacing the current 1 series coupe.

A 660lb reduction is never going to happen. That's an extreme weight loss, more in line with a high priced lighter weight materials.
