	On my way to Buffalo on Monday, I stopped at the weigh station on 
the freeway and weighed the 5KCSTQ.  It came out VERY close to the 
factory claim of 3340 lb.  The weight for my car was 3360, after 
I subtracted my weight, and the suitcase in the trunk.  I have 
215/60-15 tires which are probably about 10-15 pounds heavier than 
the stock sized 205/60s, so the factory claim is pretty close.

	As a "traffic Report" for my week long road trip, I saw three
5KCSTQs, one of which was an exact twin to my car and it was 
parked in the lot where I was working.  I also saw two 200TQs and 
a nice green S4 with aftermarket wheels and tires.
