Unbelievable.........

Would you expect Audi to sell an RS model near the same price as an "S" model????

Before owners added back in the stereo and air/con, the E46 CSL was 120kg lighter.

No, I am absolutely *not* sure about the weight. I have a bet with GregW / Oregon about this (he's betting under 3500 pounds, and I'm saying over 3600), and I half hope that he wins.

Hey, Bruce, I hope I win also, for two reasons!

For the record, the new M3's unladen EU weight (including 68kg for driver, 7kg for luggage and a 90 per cent full fuel tank) rises a considerable 85kg - from 1570kg to 1655kg. BMW Australia quotes kerb weights of 1495kg (E46 M3) and 1580kg (E92 M3) respectively.

BMW says the extra weight is the result of the bigger two-door body, extra equipment and superior crashworthiness but points out it is still 100kg lighter than its most direct rival in the Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG coupe (1755kg).

However, the model that has established Audi as a serious player in the compact performance car stakes in recent times, the wild RS4 sedan (also available in Avant and Cabriolet bodystyles), weighs 5kg less at 1650kg, packs a larger 4.2-litre V8 with the same 309kW and even more torque (430Nm) and comes standard with all-wheel drive."

RS4's weight do not include 68kg for driver, 7kg for luggage but include 90 per cent full fuel tank.

M3(1580kg) is 70kg lighter than RS4(1650).
or M3(1655kg) v.s RS4(1725kg) These number is in BMW official press.
I am sure that these number is correct.

E92 M3's weight is 1580kg in Australia M3's press . 85KG(188lb) heavier than E46 M3.

Sorry my bad English.

Now, the dreaded question: what kind of weight is that you guys are betting over? Unladen weight? Curb weight? If you let us know, we can make a ruling in advance.
