Ok people, as it this Sunday is Santa Pod, I would like to reduce the weight of the beast, I read somewhere here it is a bout 1450kg and the A3 is around 1150kg even less. I have good power low down but on the speed gears i.e. 4th 5th & 6th it doesnt feel as powerful. I want to remove the following: Spare wheel with jack etc... Back seat! How much does it weigh? Is it worth removing the stereo along with changer & back box? Anything else would be appreciating. looking forward to hear your thoughts on this.
