Also, what is everyone's thoughts on the fact that the belt comes from the rear seat area to the driver's seat at an angle?
I have decided to use the stock belts at the same time to switch off the chime. The gear is DOT approved, and the other belts using these belts FIA approved, so I guess you have to go with that. At the end of the day, the harness in this case is there to hold me tightly in my seat.

The belt appears to be designed with that angle in mind. It does hold you in well when tightened up. You do have bit of lateral movement, but you can still hold the wheel with your finger tips in hard turns and lean into the harness. I went with the Rallye 3 as the seat back in our cars has not been certified yet, I am also quite tall, so I would worry about the compression from the angle of the straps.
