    well firstly i don't like air con and second i was think about making the car as light as possible but still useable. i can't afford to go big bhp figure's, so was thinking it could be a cheaper way togo faster

    Aircon has about the same power consumption as the effect of driving along with all your windows open - and i bet you can't notice the difference with that. I wouldnt bother devaluing your car if I were you

    Just seems a shame to rip it out for no gain. The weight saved will be so minimal it'll make no difference. but it does mean your screen will take ages to defrost, and you'll get incredibly hot in summer!
