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?

: : 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 bmwusa.com) 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.
