Thanks OC! The catalog says the front OEM brake assembly weighs about 42 lbs per front wheel!? Is it really that heavy? Looking forward to your numbers.

I just removed and weighed the trunk floor cover. It looks like it is secured, but it actually comes off when you pick it up. I bet BMW wanted to give the option of removing it easily. The thing weighs 3.75 kg (8.26 lbs)! Original post updated.

I also removed the lining from the trunk lid. Took me 3 minutes to get the plastic rivets out. That weighs about 2lbs, but I don't have a precise measurement yet.
