Curb Weight

Any way to find out the true curb weight of the 2011 550ixDrive? My manual says 5600 lbs, but other sources I look at are about 1000 lbs lighter? Thanks

It's confusing. That 5600 pounds is probably Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) - which is is the maximum operating weight of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer including the vehicle's chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo but excluding that of any trailers.

Curb Weight is all of that minus the maximum weight of passengers and cargo. For a 2011 550 xDrive, curb weight was about 4500 pounds.

Your registration and or title might have the curb weight on it. Floriduh titles do, 4068 pounds for a F10 535i with a manual transmission.

Curb weight

Best way to get true weight is to top off the tank and use a truck scale. If you don't want a weight slip, most will just tell you the weight for free, or a small fee.
