Default so, does anyone know how much more the leather seats weigh?

yea, so im in the market for buying a 2000-2001 RS coupe. and there is only one for sale in my area right now, but it has leather. now i dont need leather and i dont like it that much, and i REALLY dont feel like paying more for it. but i might have to settle for it, if this is all i can buy. but i have another concern, how much weight does it add? does anyone know by anychance? and how much does each seat weigh compared to the regular cloth seats? imo the RS is already to heavy for its power output, and every little bit helps to over come this. i know it may seem insignificant, but hey i have a need to know. so if anyone's got any info, itd be greatly appreciated. thanks

I can't imagine the TOTAL additional weight of all the leather in the car is more than a few pounds. It's just leather, not the whole cow!

Is bigger than yours.


Yeah. It's just the seat cover. The seats themselves are no different, just a leather cover instead of cloth. If it really irritates you, you can take it off and ride around on the foam.

I cant speak for the front seats, but I pulled the rear seats from my wrx (yes, with leather) a little bit ago, and they're hella light.. the whole 4 seats cant be more than a couple of pounds more if heavier at all.

Leather, cloth, it don't matter. The front seats in the RS are heavy as heck. My Evo 2's shaved a fair amount of weight out of the car (probably as much as 20 or 30 lbs each)
