    Anyone ever weighed their car?

    Driving into work today, for the first time in ages my car was FAIRLY empty, still a bit of crap in the boot, but not more than 5-10kg of stuff I wouldn't think.

    On our newish weighbridge at work, it weighed in at 1240Kg, that's a 1.8T A3 FWD, with jamex coilovers and 330mm porsche brakes, and a set of ARB's.

    Probably about 10 litres of fuel left in it too, so without fuel, I'd estimate it'd be 1230kg.

    Not too bad really!

    Anyone else been on a weighbridge?
