I beleive 84 was the first year, and it came in one model only...Loaded,
with air, power front windows, cruise, and that wonderful piece of s**t VW
single interior light just above the drivers head.  The only options I know
of were leather seats and power sun roof.  Mine has the sun roof.

The 84 should be the lightest (don't they always get heavier each year ;-)
I weighed mine at a SCCA divisional, and it came in at 2750.  That was with
about 1/2 tank of gas and all other stuff removed (spare, tools, etc).
