That's funny, one of the big factors in deciding to buy both my '09 and '12 Mustangs was the fact that they fit good. Big-framed 6 footer here, who (call me crazy) likes driving in a relatively upright seated position.

You want to try on a really snug fitting car, slip into a few of the "sporty" rice-powered models the next time you go to a new car show.

As to the OPs few hundred pound variance, aren't those weights always based on only having the options standard for that model, and no fluids? It would be pretty hard to replicate that in the real world.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
