Yesterday i decided to start taking some weight off my car.. and i started in the rear. i ended up taking almost 150 pounds off and now the car slides like nobodies buisness.

things i took out.
Spare tire
jack
soundproofing...that was 45pounds!
seats
all the plastic covers in the trunk

any other suggestions on reducing the weight but still looking normal and not totally gutted. Im planning to take out the a/c unit tomorrow, ttrying to think of more! :)

...and if u ask y am i taking all this weight off, wats the point?.....lets just say ggas milage!*th-up*:P

lexan windows are available for e30 so just do a search but they are expensive !
you can do the cheap version of lexan - laminated plexiglass - not legal !

remove the rubber on the firewall and on the bottom around the tranny tunnel.
remove the interior carpet with insulation and replace it with commercial grade carpet (thin).

Can I bump into your car at a meet just to prove a point? Thats pretty dangerous to take rebars out on a daily driven street car. Thats a bit beyond fuhraze, more like stupid IMO.

My rebars have saved me a couple times, in HS goofing around, and the one time I smashed into Chris by accident... LOL good times *rockout*

The plastic rebars on e30s are pretty light for a rebar id say since they're FG instead of metal. Id keep em no matter how much weight i'm trying to loose.
