Does anybody know the exakt weight savings for..

- Manual seats over electrical seats ?
- Super-lightweight wheels over lightweight weels ? (there are 10 Kg over standard wheels I was told)
- Sports exhaust over standard exhaust ?
- Steel brakes over carbon brakes ?
The biggest saving of all are the standard non electic seats,not sure but probably 30 kg plus,but the driver seat does come with electic height ajustment,so it could be lighter,all the carbon extras only save a maximum of 3 and a bit kilos,as for the exhaust the inconel exhaust is only approx 1 kilo lighter as they homolgated a lighter version of the original SS one.
The brakes are very similar only 1 kilo or so! and the wheels are a further 10% lighter so probably no more than a handfull of kilos.
All in all if you are after weight saving 75% of it will come from non-electric seats:)

I'm 70 kg currently, so 30 kg of weight saving by leaving out the electric seats makes sense to me :)
As I am the only driver of my car anyway I don't need those electric seats.

The carbon is just bling bling, agreed. But I like it nonetheless.
