    The E92 M3 comes with a sunroof? I was unaware. Thought that was just the E90.

    Yep. Glad someone else understands and knows the true weight.

    I had no idea, early on all the cars were CF. Cool I guess I wouldn't do it!

    Thanks.
    But I'm kinda going against you in regards to the topic of the thread lol. Because I'm saying that even with my weight reductions im at 3500lbs 1/8 tank. So stock from factory could easily be 3700lbs with full tank if that's how curb weight is measured.

    Sure doesn't take much to shed a lot of it off though. I don't even have a lightweight exhaust.


    It does vary though, no doubt.

    I think that depends on your options.

    I weighed my car at the scales at came out to 3580. Several other cars I've seen weighed have been 35XX as well.

    Gallon weighs about 8 pounds so I think you going 3700 is a bit high. Regardless, BMW measures the car with a driver. The M3 is not a 3700 pound car.

    I was always told that BMW advertises their weights with a 68kg driver, 7kg luggage, and nearly a full tank. I know the weight of luggage and driver is still 75kg Click here to enlarge

    At any rate, it is annoying when people say that an M3 weighs 3700+lbs when in reality the car itself is hovering around 3500lbs.

    I should weigh my E90 M3 that is stock, no options, except for DCT.

    I don't know what all the fuss is about.
    There are a lot of way's to determine the mass of a vehicle in europe.
    The determined mass for CO2 emissions for exemple is the reference mass (which is vehicle mass+all fluids, at least 90% gas, spare wheel, tools etc (when provided)+100kg).
    But the mass of the drivable condition (don't know the exact translation) is the mass+all fluids+spare+tools etc+driver (regulated 75kg in drivers position).
    These are all masses without optional equipment (so only standard fitted) unless the options are that heavy that the influence the mass significantly. What significantly is, is not defined....
    And there are a dozen more... so pick one Click here to enlarge

    So if 'people say something', they probably don't know what they're saying.
    If you want to know what BMW say's in their dimensions list (what type of mass), you'd better call BMW AG in Munich. They probably can tell you exactly what the car weighs, what the options weigh, what the fluid in the windscreen washer bottle weighs etc.

    If people tell you that a m3 is a 3700lbs+ car, you can only reply: Yes it can be....Click here to enlarge

    A gallon of water weighs 8 lbs. You should use 6 lbs per gallon for fuel. Ask a pilot.

    3700 isn't high for the E9X. The car's you've shown are fairly low weight models. The point is this is on the light end of the spectrum.

    On a side note. My car weighed in at 3318 with a half-tank and full ICE last week. The E9X's that have been weighed at the same location, were at or close to 37XX. That is what the shop owner that aligns both myself and Norm's car said these cars generally weigh.

    Practically every E92 I have seen independently weighed has been in the 35XX range and I haven't seen 37XX ever. Additionally, magazines got 35XX and 36XX. So what number is right?

    Weight indications vary from country to country and sometimes even from manufacturer to manufacturer. For example Ferrari and Lamborghini indicate the weight of their vehicles without any fluids (engine or tranny oil, fuel...). Go figure.

    The weight I'm personnally most interested in is the vehicle with a half tank of fuel, no driver. Mine came in at 1600 kgs, that's 3527 lbs. Some weight reduction mods like Performance seats (those are still very heavy) and Brembo BBK.
    E92 335i SB / Black Leather / 6AT / Navi Prof / Sunroof / Active Steering
    Mods: Performance Seats / Performance Exhaust / RB Turbos / M3 CF Roof / Brembo GT BBK 355/345 / Rollcage / M3 Mirrors / Forge FMIC / QUAIFE LSD / Ohlins R&T / M3 Suspension Parts / Vorshlag Camberplates / Megan Toe Links / LeatherZ Gauges / Extended M3 DCT Paddles / ER Sports OC / AR OC / Aux Radiator / AR catted DP / COBB Pro-Tune
    Next: GTS Wing

    As specified before, BMW states weight at full tank of gas. Adding 12 gallons to that 1/4 tank will add easily 75lbs. My weight on my registration for my 335 was 3571.

    For racing however, most teams account for a bone dry fuel tank, as this is the weight the car has to pass after a race.

    The ZCP package adds 18lbs, so a base model with EDC should weigh 3534. However, most magazines state weight with close to empty tank of gas. Add 100lbs of gas, and you get a 3634lbs car. With I-Drive and other options, it gets closer to 3700 mark which makes sense as the curb weight (base model weight+180lbs of driver and luggage) is 3705lbs.

    Not really, this is just making excuses for the weight BMW lists. 3700 is not a realistic number, it's on the very high side and once again no independent magazine weight has shown 3700+. Sorry.

    For the first time in the history of human being, Yes, you are correct. I did a typo. The true statement would be:

    it gets closer to 3700 mark which doesn't makes sense as the curb weight (base model weight+180lbs of driver and luggage) is 3705lbs.

    Yep options, fuel, etc., will affect the weight.

    My whole point of course being the M3 does not start at 37XX pounds.
