Weight distribution

Has anyone with access to a scale managed to measure the exact weight distribution of their car? I'm curious as to how close it is to the fabled 50/50. I imagine the diesel models to be slightly heavier at the front.

I had the 116i on the scales with a half full fuel tank and no people inside.
Front: 690 kg
Rear: 660 kg.
Total: 1350 kg.

That equals 51/49 percent.
