F80/F82 Weight by standard.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
A lot of confusion around the weight numbers. BMW is not misleading, they use the EU Kerbweight standard and also stated an ~80kg weight loss from the E92 M3.

What has been misleading is the myriad of translations to US curb weight and all confusion with what the standards includes.

Here is a list of the side by side weight F82/E92 using the 80kg/176lbs difference as formula.

US curb weight: 3528 / 3704 lbs ( 1600 / 1680 kg )
EU DIN Unladen: 1575 / 1655 kg ( 3472 / 3648 lbs )
EU Kerbweight: 1505 / 1585 kg ( 3317 / 3494 lbs )

I hope this can help when you compare weight and power to weight ratio with other cars. Just be sure you use the same standard.

( When you see lower US curb weight number for the E92 it's mags or people having put the car on scale without a driver and with equipment/fluid differences )

Unladen means unloaded so for the F82 it should be
EU DIN Unladen:1500kg/3306lbs
EU Kerbweight:1575kg/3472lbs

EU DIN Unladen=all fluids and 90% fuel
EU Kerbweight=all fluids and 90% fuel + included 68kg driver and 7kg cargo

Good post but a small correction is I think you have curb and unladen reversed. Also, the unladen is supposed to be less than 3306, not 3317 (or did I just open up the worm can again?!)

edit- just saw Holset beat me to it.
