  • How much does your E30 M3 Weigh?

    Mine is 2820 lbs, bone stock, full tank of fuel, spare, jack, and took kit in.

    Front/rear distribution is 52.6/47.4 with me in the car, seat all the way back (I'm tall)

    The above is based on scales with 20lb accuracy, so numbers may be off a tad.

    My fat-bastard of a car weighed (1300kg) 2866lbs at some truck scales. 52/48 weight dist. front/rear. Full tank of gas, spare, jack, toolkit, etc. in the trunk.

    I've since removed all of the A/C components forward of the front bulkhead, and replaced the stock seat with a fixed-back OMP race seat, so it should be ~60lbs lighter now. My long-term goal is to get it down to ~2600lbs, without sacrificing carpet and sound-deadening. It's gonna take some work. [done]

    PS. There have been some threads about vehicle weights in the past...

      question: how come the doorjamb sticker states the weight over 3000? is that with a full load of people?

          I think that is gross vehicle weight, with passengers & cargo.

            I'm at 2688 lbs with a full tank of gas and my heavier street wheels/tires. This is with VSR roll bar.

            I've since removed the power steering, cruise control, lighter seat, and some other stuff.
