    this all depends on how far your wanting to go! as in is this gonna be a dedicated track car? if so you can shed loads of weight even chopping out unneeded parts of the wiring loom etc removing the air con etc which weights quite a fair bit!
    or its a completely reversible solution your after and then really your looking at stripping the interior etc leaving the spare wheel out etc!

    Take out everything in the boot, carpet, wall liners, tool kit, spare, everything really.

    How far do you want to go ? Do you still want the back seats ? On the E39 they are surprisingly heavy.

    Even go as far as the door cards, roof liner, change the front seats to lightweight racing seats.

    might be worth speaking to a place that does race prep!
    as i only know what i've read from others that track their cars and i know the wiring loom etc is quite an in depth affair and cutting the wrong wires can mess things up!

    also things like having your suspension set up right cornerweighted etc all affects how it handles and obviously as you've mentioned in the other thread brakes are a biggie in the track world!

    If you remove the door cards you might want to replace them with some sort of composite or alloy pannel. Plenty of sharp stuff that'll be a bit of a hazard.
