Rear Seat Delete?

Hey everyone I wanted to know if the rear seat delete kit is worth it? Anyone have one? I see that the MMR one looks pretty nice. Thanks!

My guesses:

1) Weight savings, even though the rear seats REALLY do not weigh much. Maybe 10-20 pounds. I've removed mine when I reupholstered the interior of my V6, and I was surprised how light they were.

2) Because they're useless unless children sit in the back. No human adult will be comfortable back there unless it's at the expense of the people in the front seats.

3) Because race car.

1. makes car sound better on the inside (stereo/muffler wise)
2.gives me a good excuse to not put people back there
3. more room for activities
4. because race car.

I kinda want to delete the rear seat myself. Mostly because I think it looks awesome, and the only people allowed in my car are me and my lady. Anyways someone posted this link before, it's a good price on the ford seat delete kit.

Thanks for the responses everyone! I would do it because of a little weight savings, no one sits there and maybe to go with some Corbeau cr1 seats in the future. Idk I might hold off for that one time I need to give someone a lift lol.
