Wheel alignement help

Hello guys I need to know with my 335D what weight and where and how much fuel do I need to put in the tank in order to get the perfect alignment.
I was told 150 lbs in each front seat, 150 in middle rear seats, 46 lbs in trunk.
Also can someone give me the right spec please?
Thanks to all in advance

As for weight, I'd say the best thing to do is just over a half tank of fuel and average out what weight you normally have in your car. If it's only ever you in the car, then put some weight in the drivers seat. If it's you and a passenger, put weight in both seats, etc.

Who is doing the alignment? Dealer puts weighted bags in the car. In terms of weight in trunk, account for spare tire if you have one (mine weighs 31 lb).

I'm sure I'm way past the 46 pounds in truck (maybe not) as my uhaul tow bar assy weighs about 39 lbs on its own. In opposite way, I no longer have 70 lbs of the pea system there. Custom exhaust is also way more lite than OEM. Memory is fuzzy but think I weighed OEM exhaust at ~68 lb. I didn't get to weigh the custom one. Exhaust coming off for LSD install so I will put weigh in on my check list of LSD diff installation.

As the NFL refs would say "Upon further review", I'm at a break even point +31 tire, +39 uhaul hitch, -70 pea system =0 The exhaust is likely 15-20 lbs lighter than before but I'm guessing.
