Drain washer fluid, remove front wipers, racing steeringwheel, removing windows and regulators, remove audio and unnessecary wiring, door panels, get rid of gf, remove brakes and rotors......

Best bet for weight reduction would be get a sawzaw and go mk6 convertible! Haha

ECS, Right at 20lbs of savings with that one. It allows you to re use the OEM latch. Still I drilled hood pins in for mine. Its alot of surface area and weighs like 11lbs or so.

Not painted yet. Will likely be getting the whole car resprayed when i get out of the desert and pull the vinyl wrap off

I have a DMFW in place now, eventually I'll get to SMFW but DMFW is so nice from an NVH standpoint.
