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
Recaro Pole Position (each)
Seat Hardware (each: floormounts, sliders)
Rear Seats removed
Total weight saved
Couple this with a lightweight battery/tray setup and you can shed 150lbs off your total weight within in a few hours.
