You might replace the spare tire with a plug kit/inflator. It won't help you if a wheel gets damaged or something punctures the sidewall, but it should cover 90% of leaks.
So far Iíve removed the spare tire/tools (insurance has free tows), any unneeded metal heat shielding from under the car, any unused brackets in the engine bay.
As well as replacing the exhaust system with a titanium one.
Lightweight battery, lightweight flywheel as well.

Iíve still got a long list of things to purchase but theyíre all big ticket items.
