And you already lost 200 lbs.

FACT: Its the lightest, most raw (least amount of driver aids + electronics) BMW currently sells..
My point exactly. With what you listed one would spend about $15k to lose 200 lbs (your estimate). The next 150 lbs will be even more costly. So, yeah, like I said, it'll be very difficult to lose 350 lbs on this car.

I wouldn't want to put $15k into this car let alone $25k+ and still not have any suspension or engine mods.

What driver aids is the car missing. Admittedly I missed that part.
