Carbon fiber weighs more than fiberglass hood? Or do you mean you save 40 and 25 lbs?
: Carbon fibre hood = 40 lbs.Fibreglass ~25 lbs. Replace front seats w/ Sparco etc. can save ~110lbs if you build own alum brackets. Rear seats(mainly folding seatback)=30lbs. Replace castiron manifold w/ stainless steel 96 up headers = 10lbs + cat back stainless steel exhaust = 25lbs. Swap battery for gel motorcycle battery = 25lbs. Change to motorsport rotors w/ alum hats = 8lbs.Remove sound deadening mtl in trunk =40 lbs.Total = `225lbs. Done it - 97 M3 goes like stink but you have to be masochist to drive long distance on street!!
