I believe my E92's empty weight is supposed to be 3570 lbs - that's what I was comparing the 128 convertible's weight to. Most of that extra weight is chassis bracing, and is at the bottom of the car, so it doesn't have that much of an effect on handling. Again, a lot depends on what the car will be used for - it's not as ideal for tracking as the 128 coupe would be, but the open-air factor adds a lot to the experience, especially in warmer climate areas.

I should mention that I put 18" wheels and tires (same as 335i 18" staggered fitment) on the 128 to improve the ride and handling. It definitely changed both for the better.
