On Vekke's other thread "Audi A8..registered.." we established a weight of 3240 Lbs. Maybe thats because of aluminum monocoque body and reduced engine weight. It has up sized turbo for a Mark 4 1.9 TDI on his 1.2 TDI so its capable of moving the standard car nicely even without e-assist.

Any advise for dieting without effecting mental acuity would be greatly appreciated. At 48 I have to be ultra stringent to see any reduction. I could stand to loose 50 lbs but I'm not that long suffering.

Mirror deletes, 80% grill blocks, wheel covers, 50 psi tires = 6% better MPG avg. over a year. Wheel skirts overcoming ethanol winter fuel mpg losses and more!
