To each his own but I wouldn't bother, find weight savings elsewhere.
No, its not worth it for weight reduction unless your tracking/racing the car very often. And even then professional driving instructions would be more beneficial. True, road noise would be an issue. If removing the rear-seat backs is 65 lbs alone, then i can only imagine what everything adds up to together. Im really not doing this for the weight-reduction, but more of to see if we can Itll be back to stock/rear-seat-backless by the time im done, i just wanted to see how much these things weigh.

Ill probably end up stopping with the rear-seat backs since removing the seat-bottoms would expose the car to lots of road noise.
