I removed the trunk carpet and a bunch of plastic parts under the hood, all totaling 70 lbs. I never use the trunk, and I don't care that the engine compartment isn't 'clean' (ie, wires and coil packs visible), so the weight saving doesn't affect the way I use the car, and it's all reversible (I can put everything back on).
I have plans on removing the rear resonators (~30 lbs right there) and perhaps removing the front sway bar (~20 lbs) if it doesn't affect driveability. I didn't buy this car to do cornering, so all that would add up to about 120 lbs.
Not only does it help make the car marginally faster, it's better fuel economy, and less wear on the clutch and brakes.
Beyond all this low-hanging fruit, I'll likely need to spend some money. Let me know if you think of anything else.
