Me and my girlfriend took my seats out: this really does work bc we went for a ride and we both felt a difference. We weighed the amount of the rear seat and it was 22lbs.

100 lbs is only worth about a tenth of a second in the quarter. Just sayin.

Re: Takeing out rear seats

Don't get me wrong the seats are heavy, but it doesn't get rid of that much weight not as much as American muscle says. Bc it was a loss of 30 lbs not 50lbs. But it does have it's own rewards. Like I can feel the speed of the car going at high speeds hearing wind and the sound of the exhaust. If u don't have kids or friends it's a great upgrade... Not a disappointment.. The price is a little high tho
