I think C&D weighed a Euro spec car. We know how much that weighs. The issue is more about the curb weight of a US spec car.

335i weighes less than an M3 as per Euro specs. This means that in all probability the US Curb Weight published by BMWNA will be in excess of that 3571 number.

I'm surprised also. I wonder if there is an error of some kind in the brochure.
