I find 200 lbs hard to believe. Especially between a CCR/ELC (right) car with moonroof.

Even 40 lbs between bumpers is sketchy to me. It wouldn't make sense to add that much weight to the extremes of the "performance" models.

I've pinned mine around 3400 or so with about no gas in it at 2 places, not counting my weight adding stuff in the trunk.

But major differences i see between say my car and an SSEi (bills will be heavier)
  • Seat guts
    ELC (pump, wiring, struts, adjuster, and lines for the tire fill)
    Supercharger vs composite UIM
    Audio - bose amp, small differences out back
    ECC?
    Trunk Lid Carpet
    DIC - lamp monitor especially?
    extra tensioner, belt

I can relate to your trepidation, but my cars get weighed at the same scale. And the 2 times I've done it, they've either been 200 or 300 off from each other.

Compared to your list above, I doubt my seats are more than 5 pounds off. I have the same number of adjuster motors. Only thing missing from the SLE as stated before is the lumbar pump.
I have ELC.
I have SC.
Rear speakers are lighter by one coil each compared to the SSEi.
Both my cars have ECC.
Both my cars have trunk lid carpet.
Lamp monitor weighs next to nothing. It'* a plastic box with little circuitry.
I have both belts and tensioners.

Why was the 95 SE lighter than any other year of SE production? You old-timers remember the curb weight differences? I do.

I also trust Marty'* weights on the front and rear bumpers. He weighed them. For that reason, it'* not for us to doubt.

Well, there IS headlight washer system, but that shouldn't weigh too much.

Power antenna vs. standard maybe?

Headlight washer is a good one. Call it 2 pounds total max. The pump is tiny.

Both cars have power antennas.

How many things have been negligable? Those add up to substantial.

I haven't a clue, but watch fluid capacities. A cubic ft of water weighs 64 lbs. You can imagine weights with denser fluids. FWIW.
