Post all the useless things you've gutted in your E36 for weight reduction purposes. I guess this only applies to you track junkies. It's an obsesssion for me. And try to post the approximate weight of the item.
Here's my list..
Front auxilary fan and outer housing - 20lbs
door panel insulations (foam and sticky black guck) - ??lbs
Rear speakers, tweeters and speaker boxes - 8lbs
Door panel speakers and tweeters - 3-5lbs
Replaced side mirrors w/ ABS plastic M3 mirrors, no motor - 5lbs
Replaced both front seats w/ Corbeau Forza seats - (45lbs x 2) - (26lbs x 2) = 38lbs
Removed CD changer and bracket - 10lbs
Removed stock amp - 10lbs
Removed hood liner - ??lbs
Removed stock airbox and replaced with cone filter intake - ??lbs
Future weight reduction..
trunk carpet and insulations
rear power window motors and arm
spare tire (need it in there for now)
CF hood and rear trunk lid (painted)
MA Shaw rear window, side rear windows and 1/4 panel windows
For anyone who thinks weight reduction is a waste of time, you're an idiot. Serously, it all adds up and the only thing a BMW needs to be a great track car is some liposuction!
My car handles amazingly and it's much much faster than any stock or moderately modified M42. After I tune the motor properly, it should fly on the track just like J. Winklehocks S42
