RPM - i aggree with you. The hand book that i got with my car (manual) says the weight of it is 1035 kg. I have heard that the mk.2 is 1110 kg due to the fancy lights, climate control (?) different interior, bigger wheels, lights washer jets with launching balls, general higher-grade interior plastic -seems a lot chunkier, different body panels, possible chassis stiffening etc.. Now 1110 kg minus 89kg = 1021 kg and there you have it.
Whats all the fuss about - whatever the differnec is you can be assured that the cup is 89+Kg lighter than the Mk2 172 - end of story full tank of fuel or no fuel - Next well be arguing about which petrol is lighter............I heard 98 octane is 2.93483489675483 per 1267litres lighter than 95Ron...................yawn yawn
Mines magnetic, but its really light and its a Y-reg.
Can people with the mk.2 172s please look in their hand books and see what their cars weigh? it seems that the mk.2 172s weigh 75kg more than the mk.1s. I wonder if i could get the thinner glass and get the sound deadening removed etc etc from mine? thatd be 1035 kg minus 89 kg making 946kg, toidy.
