Well you could try any custom ROM... These have less apps compared to the Sony Stock ones.

The Sony Stock ROMS will always have some bloatware application that cannot be deleted. Some apps can be disabled via settings > apps > All > disable

Cyanogen Rom are pretty much basic Android but if it's too bare for you
you can use any custom Rom and open his zip file in winrar or 7zip and delete any app you don't need from /system/app directory.

@mrjraider: thanks, but ive really tried a lot of custom roms.....
to disable unneeded apps is the last option

@freedom74: can you tell me more detailed what you mean with "open custom rom with Winrar" ?
When i open the .ftf File there are only files and no folders....

Well, when you said custom Rom I presumed you have unlocked bootloader and you installed ROMs from recovery.
So you take zip file from custom ROM opens it in winrar and delete unnecessary apps from /system/app and exit winrar.
Then you copy that file to SD card and install it from recovery.

Can highly recommend vanirAOSP.

Slimmest ROM outthere. No needless junk apps and therefor always 400-450 MB free ram.
Also great battery life.
