If I had listened to what mods people think are foolish, my car would have looked way different than the way it sits now.

As for the reasoning about deleting the rear seats, I was planning to remove my rear seats, which weigh ~47lbs (including the headrests), simply because I never drive people in the back of my car and to offset the weight of the subs I was going to put in my trunk. This car also has an amazing amount of sound deadening from OEM unlike most cars that i've done an audio install done, so removing the rear seats would also increase the SPL from the subs and cut down on some of the rattling in the trunk which often leads to a broken gas cap latch.
As for the carbon fabric wrap, it just simply looks better than regular vinyl or fabric. It is not poser, but a matter of my taste. The fact that I also have a 5'x5' sheet of it sitting in my room for the past 6 month from numerous installs also made me want to just get rid of it in a useful way.
And no, no rollbar or harnesses. I'd just get a CG lock, call it a day, and save the cash.
Knock out two birds with one stone and do a setup similar to that of member MyM3>UrCar. He recently sold his e92 M3 but I found a picture (albeit a close up) which shows you his setup. Basically a rear seat delete with a custom sub box formed as a closeout.
