Holy crap 20 lbs per seat I will have to suck up the extra weight on that one. I never much liked cloth seats.

My car appears to be less than most on here and I am fully loaded with leather and seat warmers.

The individuals numbers are with me in the car, without me was 3,792
This was a quick spur of the moment weight. I ~ we didn't put the car on their lift, strictly out of curiousity weight.
I WOULD ALSO SAY BACKSTREET IS THE BEST PLACE IN OHIO TO GO TO ALWAYS HELPFUL

Rememer everyone gas weighs about 6.2 lbs per gallon, our tanks are about 4 gallons per 1/4 tank, so, basically you have to add or subtract about 30lbs per 1/4 tank to compare apples to apples

Roger that, I was just letting everyone know how to compare their weight to one another, that's all.

There was another post up a few that stated his weight with 1/4 tank also

Interesting. So the difference between a '13 and a '14 with damn near the same options (Dropspeed has B/U camera, no Recaros) is 39lbs, with the variable of different scales. Matt you were on high quality Longacres, and from you post NJ Drive, you are confident in yours. The Recaros are stated to be lighter than the cloth 1SS seats. I understand we are a kind of an "apples to oranges" comparison because of the (small) variables, but I doubt those variables result in a 39lb difference. Where is the gain?

One thing I did notice in Dropspeed's original post was that it appeared the car wasn't centered on the scale pads. Single load cell systems, depending on age/frequency of use, sometimes do not like off-center loads especially when approaching capacity.

Not saying this is definitely why we're seeing a difference, but something that should be considered.
