I weighed my Performance Edition 6MT at the local recycling center. The car hit the scale at 3400lbs. I'm not sure what the exact weight is since I believe the machine will only change it's displayed weight by increments of 50lbs (3400, 3450, etc).

For reference my manual transmission 135i (N54) with no nav, manual seats, moonroof & heated seats came in at 3350lbs & my DCT E90 M3 (fully loaded) came in at 3650lbs

135i N54 (manual) -> 3350lbs
M2 Performance Edition (manual) -> 3400lbs
E90 M3 (DCT) -> 3650lbs

Don't even bother, those things aren't accurate at all. Corner-weighted or nothing.

My 6mt weighed in at ~3390 with the gas light on, so that's probably pretty close.

I'm down to 3260 now

Ah, you have your dinan front end links maxed out for shortness as well. Someone really should make shorter front endlinks for our cars.

My one currently is about 1.450 kgs, full tank, scaled on corner weight scale, when I bought the car, I did not expect to mod it so far, I'd rather bought the MT instead of DKG. But I still have some to remove from inside....

- anti roll bars Dinan
- SPL suspension parts front and rear
- Lexan side & rear

Grip level increased a lot
Can you please show where on the front of the car you are pulling air from for the brake cooling? Is it the space next to oil cooler and aux radiator? Did it require extensive modifications to the inlet area, the area behind the bumper and in the wheel arches? Thanks!

Edit: just saw that you removed the coolers to make room for the brake ducts. I guess these locationS would not be possible for brake ducts without first removing.
