E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Liposuction

Its time for my baby to shed some weight. When i bought this newest e30, i did so knowing that it wasn't the lightweight iS coupe that im used to. I know there's a giant foam rubber disc on the bottom of the spare tire well for sound proofing i can ditch but WHAT ELSE!!!

Help is appreciated

How extreme are you wanting to go?

You could do what Porsche is doing, and get rid of the AC, power widows, radio system, power seats, back seat area, power locking mechanism, run flats, and put on the IS light weight wheels.

you can get about 20kg of sound proofing tar out of the boot alone, the best way to do that is use dry ice, not that ive done that myself. I have been thinking about doing this to my little 316i though so would bt good to see your results. I already have no A/C or sunroof and no power windows, and is a coupe too which is a bit lighter than the 4dr. the only luxury per-se that id keep is the power steering

Im trying to go pretty extreme. Any sound proofing I can, A/C delete, power steering delete, radio delete, rear seat delete, possibly sunroof delete if I can find a decent enough metal worker who can create an invisible seam between the roof and the moveable sunroof. Trying for as much weight as possible ya dig!
