Weight Difference: BMW 335i vs. 135i (Actual Results)

After running a 10 second pass in my 135i, I was really curious what it weighed. So, I found a local weigh station and put it on the scale. I even brought my stock BMW 335i to find out the difference in weight between the two.

135i weighed 3,300lbs without a driver.
335i weighed 3,600lbs without a driver.

For more details, like the weight reduction I've already done on the 135i and how much gas each car had, check out my video below. I ripped the 135i at the beginning, so it's worth watching anyways.

Surprised how spot on the number is!

Not 3301, 3302 - but 3300 exact.

I'm pretty sure this scale had 20lb increments.

I already knew that the 335i was heavy, but I'm surprised the 135i is as heavy as that.

Simple. Each rear door weighs 200 lbs, and the light grey paint lightens it up by 100 lbs.

Same, I thought it'd be a smidge lighter with rear seats/trunk panels removed.

Very precise... I think you're on to something here.
