    hey all, just been googling and theres quite alot of sites saying the pree facelift s3's are lighter? is this true, if so why? i just checked my boot sticker and mine reads 1429 on a 1999 apy pre facelift, heated seats and alcantara. i know optional extras have a effect but we (well me and anyone else as anal lol) could get a rough idea if anyone wants to check their stickers and post their weight and year... and spec if you want?

    here for example

    Dont forget that with the larger brakes, bigger anti-roll bars, roll bars inside and the meth tank all adds a bit of weight back on.

    yours will be considerably more than that Tim.

    A stock FWD 3 door A3 is 1240kg, I'd imagine the 4 door to be similar if not more. No idea why you're sticker says 1145, that's well out!

    Mine was 1060 at one point, pre cage and safety gear, but you can't have everything :)

    Went through the whole of this with my mate just the other month as he has a Type R Sti and I think the original Sti RA is one of the lightest....nudges around 1170 on the scales. I don't think any of the classic scoobys get close to the S3s weight. But then again there's not a huge amount going on with the interior of the car! Lol

    Took my motor on a weigh bridge the other week Justin..... 1460kg without me in it......quarter tank of fuel and with my summer alloys/tyres. Rest of the mods in sig. The sticker in the boot says 1478 so not too far off- but the car had had so much changed from when it was new I was interested in knowing myself. Pop along to your local tip/incinerator and you should be able to get her weighed.

    Not the most accurate those big weigh bridges but yeah they give you a good idea anyway. Keep meaning to get mine on but its out of the way for me to just go and do it and costs £9. I got my A4 down to 1220 with 1/4 tank. S3 would be epic if it was that weight.

    In the classic Subarus all the weight is very low as well thanks to the boxer engine.

    Sticker says 1464 on mine.

    I proved how easy it would be to shed over 100kgs in interior and spare wheel when I weighed a load of bits before Inters. I think it would be easy enough to get an S3 under 1300kgs.

    yea the Parkers figures is well out mate. Years ago when I was 19, Parkers used to quote 970Kg for an S3, I thought it was a proper thoroughbred sports car with some serious weight reduction going on.

    Then I joined ASN all those years ago and found out the lardy truth :laugh:

    bone stock. (only mods lighter flywheel (7KG instead of 14KG), FMIC and big brake kit)

    Here in holland we pay taxes by weights. So this was a better option than a newer type that weights 1420kg

    maybe LHD makes it lighter?
    I don't know.

    Recaro's black leather heated

    no sunroof and stuff

    Yeah the difference in weight between a TQS and an S3 will be things like rollbar thickness , brake disc size stuff like that... all the stuff you would want to uprgrade if you had a TQS
