    Yup, and I don't know - the AC has not worked since I got it. Need to get it serviced, but I think fixing the fist sized rust hole in the wheel arch is a higher priority

    power was not noticeably reduced when I turned on AC on my 2L CR140 TDI.. nor is it reduced on my m54b30 e60. It is on my '95 m3 though. It seems like car companies have newer AC that doesn't suck as much power from the engine as it used to..

    Well, that too, but when you have enough torque/power, it is harder to notice.

    Owner of a 99 Miata with (broken) AC. Can confirm also. AC makes no difference in the TL and, I imagine, in your Mustang.

    You can remove my Mercedes (sold as of couple hours ago), and instead add the A5, which is now properly mine for the time being:

    2011 Audi A5 quattro
    2967 cm³, turbocharged V6 diesel
    176 kW, 500 Nm
    1740 kg

    Pepitko seemingly has the same car, but different numbers for power and weight. Which one's the correct one?

    There is a 176kW and a 180kW variant of the 3.0 TDI, based on model years peptiko's should be the 176kW one while leviathan's could be either one.

    Mine is a pre-facelift version, with 176 kW. I have the numbers from the Fahrzeugschein, so they should be correct. pepitko's car might be lighter if it's a manual (mine is S-Tronic), though I doubt it's over 100kg difference.

    If you took the weight from your Fahrzeugschein as well, it is more than the manufacturer's promo material usually... (about 130 kg in my case)

    In my experience this is normal for small 90s cars.

    it's noticeable with any car that doesn't have a lot of power, until cars started using AC clutches that greatly reduce the drag on the engine and disable the AC on full throttle.

    it was noticeable on my '83 Cougar 5.0.. 130hp/something like 220 ft-lb. It was noticeable in my '85 gti with a 2L 8v .. 110hp/~115 ft-lb. It was not very noticeable in my '09 CR140 TDI, and I don't notice much difference with my e60 m54b30 either. My '95 M3 with ~275hp is slower with the AC on though.. quite noticeable.
