Default Weights of random cars that I have on my scales

I got some corner balancing scales recently (which I haven't done yet, because I haven't leveled my scales yet-- but the front/rear balance and total weight are still accurate). Lots of people stopping by want to weight their cars, and it's kind of interesting, so I thought I'd make a thread compiling all the weights.

First post will list all the cars, in order from lightest to heaviest. As new cars get added I'll make a post with the new cars weight, and update the OP.

Weights are adjusted to reflect what the weight would be with a half full gas tank and no driver, for more meaningful comparison.

Many of the cars aren't stock.

Sporty streetable cars (AC/back seat retained if it came with it/door cards and headliner installed/street legal):

It's not terrible for full interior and a stock weight muffler

I was a little disappointed when i saw the result, though-- a couple of months ago I had it on a truck weight station (which admittedly is out of that scale's range), which told me it weighted 3071 lbs... so my expectations were lower than 3112 lbs.

The M5 isn't light and doesn't pretend to be :P

Couple of cars coming up, that I'm particularly interested to see:
1) my e39 530i-- will be interesting to see compared to the M5 and the 6 cylinder touring
2) St|g's e46 m3-- very stock, but about as lightly optioned as US e46 m3's get (slick top, 6mt, manual seats)
3) another friends very stock e46 M3, that's about as heavily optioned as US spec e46 m3's get (Sunroof, SMG, power seats)
4) where my M3 converted wagon stands in the M3 weight continuum.

Lol, this is going to be an ongoing thread over time-- highly dependent on people with cars worth weighing stopping by my house.
