Curb Weight

This is probably too general of a forum to ask this question, but it get a lot of exposure.

I weighted my car today, and it came in at 3720lbs.
This is an E90 loaded with option incl sunroof and comp package and fully fueled

I'd like to hear from others about the weight of their cars.
Thanks.

2011 E92 M3  [4.80]
2013 BMW X5M  [4.33]
Mine weighed in at 3600lbs with a full tank of gas. Fully loaded coupe, 6MT. I also have various mods that both add and remove weight so it's probably not a good sample.

"curb weight" is not what you get when you put the car on the scale. The curb weight BMW (and other German car companies) list is the car + fluids + driver + small suitcase.

... so what you're measuring is not curb weight.

2540! THAT'S what I'm talking about. Must be a serious blast to drive.

My E21 tips in at 2,400. But it's a '79, and the BHP on the M20 motor was about 140 new, so . . . .

I'm hoping to get my E30 with S50 down into the 2600 range. Need to get the S50 in there first though!

Weighed my DCT E92 w/o sunroof and Nav and probably 1 gallon under half a tank at 3545. I have comp pkg, comfort access and premium sound.
I expected a little more, maybe 3600 and with a full tank it probably would've been there.
