I took my car to the local refuse station this morning and it weighed in at 2460.

1995 318ti (not sure of version but it has a factory LSD, alloy wheels and keyless entry stock???)

Stuff removed:
A/C components under the hood
Cruise control components under the hood
Rear seat
Everything in the trunk but the plastic covers
Stereo and speakers

Items used to replace OEM items:
OMP Steering wheel
Ebay carbon fiber sunroof plug
EVO 8 front seats
Kosei K4R 17x8.5 wheels + 215/45/17 Hankook R-S3 tires

Suspension and drivetrain/engine is otherwise stock.

Sounds like a clubsport. if thats the case: your seats would look like this

you'd have m3 mirrors, an m3 front bumper, m tech side moldings and 16in style 18 wheels (5 spoke)

Seemed like I was reading that the '95s actually came with the LSD without being a clubsport? Active with optional LSD or something?
I jumped under the car and it has the "S" on the tag but honestly, driving the car, it doesn't act like it has an LSD. I figure it's either worn out or the BMW LSD doesn't really have enough lock-up to matter much? Aren't they like 25% lock-up? If so, that seems very low as my last car was like 60% lock-up on an AWD and my car before that with an aftermarket LSD was like 80%.

The key has a button, which I assume is the optional keyless entry. It doesn't work though as I believe the remote is dead.
I don't think I have any of those pieces to make it a clubsport, but here is what it looks like.

I forgot to mention in the previous post, I also have the 328i vented front rotor setup which probably adds a few pounds.

Sounds like mine. Active with the winter package. Winter package had an LSD and could be put on any package(base/active/sport) of the car. Some other recent threads and investigation have shown that LSD was an option on clubsports as well. Not all of them had it.

the button on the key is for the dim, useless light on the front of it, the keyless entry came with a separate remote

I just weighed in my 1998 318ti the other week. Mod list for things weight related;
- Rear seats removed and replaced with a flat boot shelf
- M52B28 motor with M50 manifold
- ZF320 gearbox
- No AC currently (will be re-installing)
- No Cruise Control
- ASC removed
- BC coilovers
- E36 Medium case LSD with 3.64 e30 LSD centre
- Standard front seats and steering wheel
- Battery moved to behind the rear passenger seat.
- TR Motorsport C2 wheels. 17x8.5 +40 with 255/40/17 Hankook RS4's all round.
- Around 3/4 full of fuel.

Came in JUST under 1200kg, that's 2641 pounds for you overseas kids. (1280kg with driver and I'm 82kg)
