Just thought I'd share some pics of my interior. I just installed my harness last night.

Did you have to install a new SRS system, or did the old ones work?

used How does that make me a ricer? I race on the track, I don't install seat belt harnesses to look cool. I get pissed when people say this and that about things being rice. Rice means any mod that is non functional. Everything on my car was installed for a functional reason, so there's really nothing "rice" about it. This belt system improves your cornering speeds believe it or not. You aren't limited by the side to side roll you feel when you corner hard and are forced to hold on to the wheel for support. When that happens, you lose some control of the car. Instead you can corner as hard as you want and the belt holds you in place. I can already corner much faster, best money I've ever spent. I admit the blue seats are a bit tacky, but I had no choice. Seats are expensive and buying used is the way to go. I have the exact same seat/belt/colour setup as my friend's Alfa GTV race car, so I guess that makes him rice too?

If you were joking, sorry to be so tight about it. If you spent as much time and money as I did, you wouldn't want someone making comments like that either. I've done a lot of research before I install anything on my car. I'm not ignorant when it comes to modifications like a lot of people are.

nope, SRS is completley disabled. With a race harness airbags are useless anyhow.

sides mounted to my seat bracket, rear shoulder straps I modified the belt clips with a stock E36 clips and popped them into the rear seat belt holsters. I can remove them when I want with ease.

Made it myself, "M" from M3 badge, "4" from 740 badge, "2" from 325 badge.

Looks great Auto, I didn't notice it until Lori mentioned it. Is it one of those grey ///M badges? Of course they came out with those a few weeks after I added the other ghead .

Curious, are those seats and harnesses pretty comfortable? I realize why you bought them, but could you take a road trip of 2 hours and still be comfortable? You may have another car for a daily driver, I don't, so I'm curious.

If you want, but that would be pretty expensive. I got them used from old cars and I suggest you do the same. Find a shop that works on BMW's and see if they have any old badges laying around they could sell to you cheap.

Thanks. Actually, I chopped the stripes off so it just says "M42" and not "///M42", I didn't want to look like a poser, just wanted to be original. Then again, I got a lot of attention from Honda driving street racers. They ask me if I have a 4.2L LOL.

I find the seats comfy and it seems to fit me perfectly. When I drive to the track it takes me about 2 hours to get there. I don't have any complaints, but my passengers always compain about having back pains. The driving position is perfect, I find when I sat in stock seats I always slouched which actually in turn gave me back pains. The race seat is just what I needed.

I don't have another car, I really wish I did though. I have to drive my car in the winter again and I really don't want to That aluminum undertray is going to take a beating from the road salt.
