Yeah, I think you're right, some folks have come back with those weights. Weren't those cars with minimal options (6MT, speedcloth, no nav, no PDC, no heated seats, no split/fold-down seats, no sat radio, etc.)?

I looked at the weight thread and Lucid came back with a 3,450 pound weight (tech, premium, coupe/cf), and yet an e90 fully loaded with sunroof and all options came in at 3,740.

I didn't spend a lot of time trying to cross-reference other threads and I couldn't get to the heart of the weight differences (Lucid did find a bunch of trunk weight to ditch, insulation, mobility, carpet, that probably accounts for maybe 50 or so pounds).
