Weights of various cars that I have had on my scales

I got some corner balancing scales recently (which I haven't done yet, because I haven't leveled my scales yet-- but the front/rear balance and total weight are still accurate). Lots of people stopping by want to weight their cars, and it's kind of interesting, so I thought I'd make a thread compiling all the weights.

First post will list all the cars, in order from lightest to heaviest. As new cars get added I'll make a post with the new cars weight, and update the OP.

Weights on the list are adjusted to reflect what the weight would be with a half full gas tank and no driver, for more meaningful comparison.

Many of the cars aren't stock.



Scales aren't leveled, so corner weights and cross balances are not accurate! But, total weight is.

Should be a little lighter up front with the airbox now but not worth throwing back on the scales yet.

**edited** Weight savings mods here:

-Apex ARC8 18x9.5 & 18x10
-AST 4100
-Stoptech ST40 (front only, OEM rear)
-SGT CSL trunk and front bumper
-S2R CF Roof Panel (stock headliner, pillars, etc. all in place)
-Recaro SPG Seats
-HPC Carbon Rear Seat Delete Panel (rear seat headrests removed, seat bottom cushion still in place)
-Bimmerworld/Jet Hot Headers
-Supersprint Race Section 3
-Mini Cooper OEM battery

**Weight Adding Stuff**
-Kirk 4pt Roll Bar
-Schroth 6 pt Harnesses
-UUC Front and Rear Sway Bars
-A little over 1/2 tank of fuel

Please overlook the cross weights, it hasn't been set as yet (waiting on new suspension before doing so).

A Unicorn CSL (as in none of the factory options) is supposed to be 1385kg (or 1426kg with full tank of fuel). I suspect mine will be approx 15kg above that with a full tank:



Obviously to work out this in pounds, multiply by 2.20462.
not my scales, but should be equally accurate.

Thread will continue to be updated as random cars are at my house.

Scales max out at 5000 lbs, so I won't be sticking anything on them that could possibly go over that.

That E90 M3 spec is stripped down and still a heavy car.
What is a fully optioned E90 M3 with DCT and sunroof?
3800lbs-plus?
