Looking to get a CF hood next year and maybe an M3 CF roof.
If you look at my sig you'll see that I have a CF hood, roof and trunk. Roof saved 65lbs getting rid of the sunroof.
Wheels saved 40lbs. Stoptech BBK, Dinan muffler, Braile 21lbs battery and Coil-overs all saved weight as well.
I have Sparco Milano seats, but they only saved about 30lbs. If I'd get race shells, I could cut another 60-70lbs!

In all, I cut almost 200lbs. off my car.
