Wondering if anyone knows the axle weights for a 2009 1.6 5 door VTR+ auto, getting AP coilovers and there's two options for different axle weights and there seams to be nothing on the internet about this anywhere

i think the 1.6hdi, 2.0hdi and vts 2.0 are the heavier ones

The coilovers are likely the same as those fitted to a 307 which can come as an estate.

The C4 isn't that heavy. Believe there is usually a 1050kg option? It's normally that one for a C4. Least I'm sure that's what my Bilsteins were.

There is 'Front axle weights From: 1001Kg Max rear axle weights: 1120Kg' and 'Max front axle weights: 1000Kg Max rear axle weights: 920Kg', There's not really much in it but I've got an auto so I'd assume it would be the heavier of the two.

Just rang Citroen and even they said they don't know the axle weights of their own car? How am I meant to find the right kit, the kw st x's are the same with two options.

Just looked my bilsteins are listed as 1065kg. An the 180 is heavier than the 1.6. So should be fine with the lower weight one.

It's likely just a different spring rate anyway you're picking. I'd be inclined to go lower weight on a comfort point alone.
