    Weight Reduction Plans?

    I've been thinking of shaving weight of my 335is and came up with a list.

    Bride Low Max Seats Or Recaro PP's
    braille 17/21lb battery most likely the 21 only for the reason my vehicle has navigation.
    Vorsteiner Double Sided Hood/Trunk


    Don't want to gut a 60k+ car. The seats will only be in for track purpose. And thats really all i can think about. Any help? Looking to shave 60-80lbs off for track duty.

    Removing passenger and rear seats as well as lightweight wheels nets you about ~200lbs IIRC.

    Seats are the best place to start.

    I don't know about 200+ but 150 sounds reasonable.
