Final Weight

I took the car to the scale at our local landfill and got the final build weight.  She came in at a svelte 3380 pounds.  Alert readers will remember the previous post saying that the car rolled out of the factory at 2139 pounds and EA estimated it would end up at 3300 pounds, so they weren't far off.

This means the car is a net 1241 pounds heavier, which is 58% more than the engineers in Stuttgart intended.  Clearly the upgraded shocks, springs and struts were needed!
