My Ride: 330i, 330Ci
330i hits the scales

I couldn't resist.

I had the 330i up on jack stands yesterday to swap the OEM 3.38 open diff for my 4.10 8-clutch race LSD, and Ground Control lower control arms. On the way down it landed on the scales:



Without me in the car, no spare tire, and 1/3 tank gas:





With me in the car:

With the 4.10 LSD, it's an absolute blast to drive. Even under hard cornering I never have the back end step out. This car just hooks up....

its just how it works. i think this article about corner balancing describes it pretty well:

Imagine a car as a four legged chair. In order for the chair to stand steadily, all four legs should be of equal length and as a consequence applying equal pressure on the floor. If one leg is longer, or shorter than the others, we have a chair that rocks, and is unstable.
