    Haven't gotten any input on this question in a thread in General... so, thought I might try the smart guys that hang out over here...

    Which of the parts below are the heaviest?

    I would have thought that bumpers, door intrusion etc, and wiring componentry make up the most addition.

    Do you have glass windows instead of perspex etc??

    Floor mats in rubber?? VERY heavy

    and on and on

    No spare tire, get rid of that thing.

    The euro bumper is lighter, But remember it does not pass the MPH crash test. most Euro conversions have brackets made for this.
    Maybe you can call around and find a place that could help you out.

    Good Luck

    That list I have above are the only parts that have different part numbers US vs Euro. Thus, there is no extra door intrusion in a US 360 Modena. The bumper covers are different (different size license plates)... and maybe that part includes structure that is heavier... but nothing behind that part is different. The floor mats are the same US vs. Euro.

    Perspex or lexan windows are not a 360 Modena option... so that's not part of the 154lb difference.

    What wiring componentry are you referring to?
    Do you mean electrical wiring? Why would that be different in the US? And would it really be that heavy?

    Okay, I thought I'd try this query one last time over here...

    Are there any Ferrari Parts Managers on this list?
    Or anybody with a Parts manual that shows weights?
    Even if just shipping weights?? (I realize those aren't too precise, but that would give me a ballpark idea; maybe an upper limit.)

    If anyone does have access to part weights, I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide the weights for any of the above parts have non-trivial weight.

    Alternatively, if anyone wants to give me access to the weight data, I'll peruse it and report back the weights myself.


    Thanks in advance!!
