Nice! Harnesses are a very underrated upgrade.

I'm sure schroth calculated the length of the belts to work with a certain range of heights and seating positions. So that may explain why you can't tighten down the lap belts as much as you want.

I've had the quick fit and the quick fit pro. The pro definitely fits different and it tends to ride up a little bit more. I have a similar centering issue as well. The pro's are in my E46 and were designed for the E46. I think that's just a function of how the belts clip into the cap lock. In fact, the regular QFs sit flat on your lap. If the pro's sat like that the buckle would dig into your hips.

The cam lock sits right over my belly button as well.
