    Did a dump run in the fist. Went on the scales on the way out.
    Base model with Recaros only. No spare in the car. I'm at 175 today. About 5/8 in the tank.

    Edit: Car has 185/60-15 Blizzaks on it right now.

    Thank you, it's good to see this. That describes my car and me exactly. Assuming accuracy, it's lighter than expected. Would you say you shed about 25-30 pounds between the spare and associated tools?

    Good to know. Same setup as me. Figured it was less than the weight they were quoting.

    Just put the spare and jack on the bathroom scale. 41.5lbs

    Also good news! Apparently the UK models have a smaller temp spare.

    You figure with lightweight wheels, brakes, ditching the spare, and maybe a CF hood and lightweight battery we can probably get these cars down to 2500 lbs.

    Forgot that I have snow tires/rims on right now. Updated post with that info. I'll re-weigh when snow is done or just weigh the difference in wheels.

    What does Ford claim they weigh?

    Ford listed it in a way to confuse wet/dry/curb when I looked at this originally.

    MT lists our car without moonroof as having a curb weight of 2741 and 60/40 distribution. MT takes this seriously.
