In Reply to: Re: Why do BMWs weigh so much? posted by Rick Kim on April 17, 2000 at 21:32:20:

I'm 170 lbs, here are my weights, full tank.

total weight, 3175 lbs. (all measurements are full tank with a 170 lb driver in place)

Left front 779 lbs.
right front 764 lbs.
left rear 815 lbs.
right rear 817 lbs.

: I was told that BMW weighs their car with all the fluids topped off (including fuel) and with a 170 pound driver in the seat. Can anyone else confirm this?

: Rick Kim

: : This is not flame bait. I love my M Coupe and can't get enough of it. I just can't figure out why it weighs (according to 3131 lbs, whereas the bigger 911 Coupe weighs 2910 lbs. Where does all that weight come from?

: : Or take the Z8 for that matter. 3495 lbs without hardtop??? That's outrageous!

: : Any insight as to why the heavy weight would be appreciated.
