Brendan .....My 1986 Audi sales glossy sez  curb weight is 2,824 lbs.

My Road & Track reprint on the 1984 Audi 4000 Q (dated March 1984)

So, the 1986 glossy sez 2,824 lbs and the 1984 R&T reprint sez the 1984 car
is 2,820 lbs, both curb weights.

Very similar. There is no data available to me about the weight
distribution of the 1986 car, but based on the 1984 R7T reprint and the
similarity of 1986 1nd 1984 curb weights, my best estimate of the 1986 car
weight distribution is 60/40 also. The cars aren't really that different.
