Weight difference E46

Hello guys, I want to ask you about the weight difference of E46. I would like to know, what is the difference in weight between E46 320i M52 150hp (98-00) and E46 320i 170hp M54 ? I've searched on the internet, but I cannot find any reliable source.

Thank you.

The E39 isn't as much bigger as you think. Also are you comparing vehicles with the same equipment and same market?

No, it's a crap because the E39 is much bigger and an interior is also bigger. It mean that it cannot be difference only 75kg or 45kg.

E39:
Wheelbase (111.4 in)
Length (188.0 in)
Width (70.9 in)
Height (56.5 in)

E46:
Wheelbase ( 107.09 inches )
Length : ( 175.98 inches )
Width : ( 68.5 inches )
Height : ( 55.91 inches )

gonna have to call BS on that. the E39 is bigger but not by an incredible amount. the interior, if you've ever sat in one, doesn't have much more wiggle room than the E46

It depends which models you compare.

In the owner's manual the lightest is 320i with manual transmission 1,425 kg. This is with the M54B22 engine. The lightest E39 is the 525i manual which is 1,565 kg. The 325i auto is 1500 kg, and the 525i auto is 1,590 kg. For 530i auto and 330xi auto there is only 5 kg difference.

I think BMW includes the weight of the driver for the curb weights?

I believe its still a 6 cylinder, so its only .3 liters smaller than the 2.5. doesn't surprise me that much.

I believe
2.2 is 170 hp
2.5 is 189 hp
3.0 is 220 hp

kind of linear
