I had to snip off the plastic on both sides of the metal buckle to get it to go in far enough to engage. Victor didn't have to do this on his so I am not sure why I had to on mine. Just a slightly different design I guess.

As far as fit I echo what Victor reported. I can't get the lap belt exactly tight enough. I run out of adjustment on the left side. There is adjustment remaining on the right side but if I pull that too tight then the entire harness is pulled off center. Also by trying to get the shoulder belts super tight, it pulls the lap belt off my lap and above my navel. So you have to compromise but I sure this will be way better than the standard 3-point belt. Just not as good as a 5 or 6 point harness with a cage, etc. but that is to be expected.

I will report more after my track event next week.
Did victor help tighten your lap belt? ...sorry, couldn't resist.

I have the QF Pro in my E46 330...same problem with the lock riding up. The regular belts always sat nice and low over my sleek hips. I can't get the same fitment with the pro's because of the way the belts clip into lock. So yeah, it will ride a little higher.
