    Tire pressure makes a huge difference in low speed handling in the D. Keep it about 1psi over recommended and it is very light indeed.

    It turns out that we as owners aren't above perpetuating the "heavy" myth ourselves

    From an actual owner of a car that "is among the top 1 percent of registered DeLoreans” ;

    I had to look up the weight of an S3 Esprit and was surprised to see it weighed in at 2350lbs so I wonder if the 15% difference is due to SS vs fiberglass as everything else should be similar

    AF - try and get it requoted without the window felt. Any box over 12" seems to get charged an extra fee for "oversize" and the window felt is perhaps in a large box to stop it creasing.

    It's ten grand less than the other two they have for sale.

    What comment?

    It doesn't portray him as that at all. Mostly he's the hero to the factory workers and the rest of the time he's working to raise money.

    Whether it's written with rose tinted (or...

    I always upload here to preserve the thread.

    This is one of the things I like about DMCTalk is that the photos are preserved.

    I think that's definitely it.

    People rarely see them so have no idea of their cost.

    Same with me with rarer cars. If I am at a car show I would never ask a Ferrari owner how much they are...

    The fact that it says "West Germany" gives you an idea of how old it is :). Pre 1990 at least.
