1.6 or 1.9?

There is possibly a slight difference (as small as 100g) due to the different offset.

I recently ripped out all of the soundproofing from inder the carpet in my 205 and it came in at 13.8kg and the only downside is that it's slightly louder in the cabin but to combat this i just turn the sterio up. Win Win situation i think

now updated

anyone know the following?

Bendix front caliper--------------2.2 kgs
247mm 205 front disc------------4.3 kgs
Standard front pads---------------approx 1kgs Kgs
total for 205 1.6 setup including 4 pads, 2 discs, 2 calipers
14 Kgs



307 Hdi 283mm x 26 brake disc-----6.9 kgs
307 hdi bosch caliper----------5 Kgs
Ferodo ds2500 pads--------------1.2 Kgs

Total for 307 setup including 4 pads, 2 discs, 2 calipers.
25 kgs... exactly.


so to offset the extra unsprung weight, you would need to loose 5kgs a side (oz superlegeras vs standard 1.9 speedlines)
Cheers
Justin

It's also the cheapest colour in the Awlgrip range mostly used in Aviation, and easiest design graphics over.
