Side note, the E46 sedan rear seats are 35 pounds? Impressive. I pulled that stuff from my last E36 sedan only to make space for wheels/tires and more stuff back there (before rollbar went in, then the rear seat area was only for gear bag and anything else smallish that could easily fit.) It was only the cushions and headrests really, but from memory it was a lot less than 35 pounds - therefore fairly pointless from just a weight savings perspective.

Hope it helps,


This is what I read on E46Fanatics a while ago. I haven't actually removed them myself, but the E46 seats include the bench and back cushions and 3 head rests.

Bottom line, I know seat time will be the #1 thing to improve my laps, but I was just curious for some simple/easy ways to save weight :)

Saving weight in HPDE? Why? Not important.

More important is having the seat to get instructors in the car with you to become a better driver!

+1

One of the biggest mistakes people make is to not get an instructor in the right seat once in a while. Driving is the thing in HPDE, not laptime.

Yea I definitely understand that; I just didn't see much draw back in the 3-5 minutes it takes to bolt a seat in n out.

Thanks for everybody's thoughts
