    Default Weight Loss...

    I need some clever ideas...

    We know the Vectra-C is a heavy car. I'm looking for ideas to reduce weight from the car without losing its appearance or functions.

    For example....

    I've put lightweight race alloy wheels on it, lightweight race calipers and discs, lightweight race suspension. Its already got a light alloy bonnet etc...

    But what else could I do to reduce vehicle weight.. any ideas?

    (Idea's need to be constructive and not result in this thread being moved to Comedy and Humour )... creative thinking needed

    Remove the soundproofing would be the next obvious one, but is it really going to make that much odds? Remove the spare wheel and jack and replace with a can of foam and join the AA just in case.

    Never put more petrol in than needed to get to the next station . There are the obvious ones like carpet etc but you'll ruin your car imo by doing all that

    Exactly, I still want my car to look as it does, which is why I wanted creative thinking?

    Any ideas?
