    I want to get a car only for track use (but road legal).
    Decided on 1of3 but want to check what's their weight.
    Anyone have a good website with proper car weights?
    Or if someone have S3 or A41.8tq could you please check on your v5?

    When I check on autotrader there seem to be same cars with different kerb weights so that doesn't look
    to genuine.

    Need to find the following:
    Audi S3 8L
    Audi A4 1.8TQ B5
    BMW 328i Coupe E36

    if it's ONLY for track use you are choosing the wrong cars to start with !

    Depends how you look at it.
    1. I don't want to spend a fortune on it
    2. I would prefer 4WD or RWD than FWD
    3. I am to tall for cars like mx5, mr2 etc. and to be honest simply hate cars like that.
    4. I don't want a car like saxo, clio because of the size of it.

    Each 8L S3 weighs different dependant on options. I actually have an original sales brochure of the optional extras, each had individual weights! lol

    Thanks Alex. TBH I thought S3 would be a bit lighter than that.

    Everything is fine with cars like Skyline, S4, M3 when it's about the price to buy them.
    Problem 1 is insurance.
    Problem 2 is when something goes wrong it can be very expensive.
    Problem 3 all upgrades for this cars are a lot more expensive comparing to the cars I listed.

    coming form owning 7 skylines (both gtr and gtst) i can tell you

    1;the insurance is the same for me with my A3 as a gtst or gtr
    2;Audi parts are 1/3rd more expensive
    3;Skyline gtst upgrades are 1/2 the cost per hp as my audi

    i bought my audi as i wanted to be a bit less "in your face" and i had been informed by the boss i need to grow up lol,but if i ever wanted to build a track weapon i would go straight to the skyline as for cost for performance i dont think there is much if anything to match
