Did you happen to get readings with you in the driver seat?

I know around here many of the DOT scales are on all the time. I know of one where the readout can be seen from outside the booth. It is usually not open, so you have plenty of time for many measurements.

Sometimes when I drive by the scale with a passenger, I'll stop and have them get out and record the weights. I weigh front axle, rear axle, combined, weight on each wheel, weight on each side, and with and without "driver."

For those local around the Puget Sound, this scale is on Highway 2 just west of Sultan.

I need to take my E90 335i out there and see what it weighs. Lots of twisties nearby too!

Thatīs 1,624 kg for those of us on the metric system and just about right from BMW statements of 1,655 kg.
