An 850 is very light by today's standards, something around 3250-3300 lbs. TOPS for a wagon.<br>Not a whole lot more you can remove for the street unless you wanrt to make it a true race car then out with all the seats (except the driver's) a lightweight race seat in its place, door panels off, insulation removed, etc
Start by taking any misc. stuff out of the car. You already got the spare tire. Third Row seat if you have it. <p>After that pretty much just the seats like JRL said....<p>Oh maybe something a little less obvious, your wheels and tires. You can get aftermarket wheels that are pretty lightweight and pay attention to tire size and weight also.<p>You could get rid of your regular exhaust and go to some kind of shortened exhaust.<p>One more, go on a diet. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Lose weight in the 855. (850arrrsaylikepirate)
you can(for starters) kill 2 birds with 1 stone and replace the suitcase muffler with a lighter more compact muffler, while improving sound and performance as well. that's what i did. the suitcase muffler is easily over 40 lbs, while the magnaflow i bought is about 6.
my 94 850 Turbo sedan weighs 3500 with me in it and about 12 gallons of gas with a full interior. im about 180 lbs. My 93 850 5 speed with me in it 1 seat and no spare tire only front door speakers and a 12" sub with small amp weighed 3240 with full tank of gas.
