    Just thought i take advantage of this weather and start striping out my A3. Going to start with the backseats as i heard they do weigh about 20 or 25kg.

    From what I can gather, it may fail the new style MOT if your remove the back seats, something to do with the seatbelts, but not 100% sure. Also your insurance may be void.

    I stripped an old saab out once, insurance said i wasnt covered...also got more damp etc in the car

    I had this with my old Ibiza a few years ago. I kept the standard passenger seat in the car alongside a bucket/harness for the driver, but I often used to take the passenger seat out leaving it as a single seater. One MOT time they got picky because the passenger seat belt was in situ, but there was no clip as it comes out with the seat as it's on the runners.

    They gave me 2 options - they would cut the belt out (no!!!), or I had to turn up and put the passenger seat back in. I did the latter but was cursing...

    I've had Ibiza and Cordoba both insured for many years, both are well stripped. Although they are both trackday toys - I can't really see the point of doing it to a daily driver TBH.

    I get what you mean about being a daily driver, but half the time its just me and one other person, so at the moment its a trial sorta thing and no1 is getting hurt by it!

    @Deeman88 - Im not sure if they make it but a rear shock brase running across the back would look good IMO if you going to be taking the rears out :) would look like a real tracker ;-) Cheers

    Im looking at that also but still a few questions to ask before i go down that route, where it gies, can it be used at the same time as seats, because if i recall the mk3 golf you could. And although it looks good it does little for handling so thats why its slightly lower on the list to tune

    I hope that sub is fixed down otherwise that will probably kill your passenger if you crash or damage the back of the seat under hard braking.
