Hey guys. I was just reading a post and someone had mentioned reducing weight would benefit your car to make it faster and handle better on a stock e36. What kinda mods can you do to significantly reduce weight on your car and are they cheap and even worth it?

One more thing. How can you get pictures in your signiture ? I have a couple of mine just for shits n' giggles

-Mark

<span style='color:red'>- Conforti cold air intake
-Triflo exhaust
-Clear corners and tails
-Custom wheels
-Racing Dynamics stress bar
-UUC short shift kit
-Turnermotorsport Performance Chip
Soon to come - Zimmerman brakes, and suspension AND UMNITZA DDE IF I EVER GET THE GODDAMN MONEY </span>
