Losing the backseat in combo with this upgrade is a sweet deal for shedding weight. Combine this with a light weight battery and you'll shed a ton of weight off this car.
Absolutely - Here's a quick rundown:

Stock BMW Seat: 55lbs
Rear Seats: 45lbs
Subtotal: 155lbs

Recaro Pole Position (each): 19lb
Seat Hardware (each: floormounts, sliders): 5lbs
Rear Seats removed: -45lbs

Total weight saved: 107lbs

Couple this with a lightweight battery/tray setup and you can shed 150lbs off your total weight within in a few hours.
