    Yes there will be a big open space and a lot of bare metal, and possibly more road noise. Why do you need to remove your rear seats? Unless your building a track/rally car the weight savings probably isn't going to be worth it on a street car.

    The rear seats arent slowing you down . They dont even weigh a pound.

    Buy a scale and weigh the back seat. You'll see it's pointless to remove it.

    The rear seat is just two big pieces of extremely lightweight foam. Removing it would be of no advantage.

    Looking at your mod list there is a TON of things you can do to improve performance much more than removing the back seats.

    You all have a good point. I've heard that they weight a bit but i'm probably wrong.

    Good looking out all and thanks.

    i can pick up the bottom part of the seat with my pinky..the only seat weight reduction that is useful imo is the passenger seat...put your passengers in the back and take out the front and you wont have bare metal but rather lots of carpet!
