Because some people dont like to wear their seatbelts. It gets very annoying when the sound goes off every 30 minutes, especially when you move around in the seat.

yea, that's what I figured.... damn something I would never do if I was a professional shop... talk about liability. Personally I think you're retarded if you don't wear you belt, but people can do as they please. However I'm surprised EAS would do this for someone, if anything happens they could be in big big trouble....

Anyway, rest of the car looks nice

Really not feeling the rims, they just don't flow right on the coupe. Otherwise, love the car.

There is certain times I wish that damn chime would shut the fuck up. I certainly would never drive around on streets/highways without a seatbelt.

I am sure you have to sign some kind of legal waiver to have it done.

That interior will be a bitch to keep clean. Looks good now, bet it doesn't look that good a couple years down the road.

Unless you wear these instead of blue jeans:

The piano black/platinum contrast in the interior is gorgeous.

My car! The guys at EAS did a great job and I'll be back for some more work in a week or two including the front Park Distance Control retrofit. I appreciate the kind words on the interior. It took a lot of BS to order and get approved. The thing that surprised me was the leather dash. All of the Platinum on the dash except a couple of plastic inserts is leather as well. You can see the stitching in a few areas. That was a nice touch by BMW.

Most guys like racy / sporty looking interiors on the M3. I'm not a big fan. I was shooting for a classy, 7 Series look on the inside and I think it worked. Platinum / Piano is kind of a 7 Series combo.

I have a ton of pics of the interior that I took myself and will post everything this weekend on the thread I started for the car a week or so ago here:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=386814

A few guys asked about the seatbelt chime. The issue is not the driver's seat, it's mainly the passenger's seat. The seat occupancy sensors are sensitive and I usually have a bag with me with my laptop etc... that I put on the seat. That's enough to set it off and I definitely don't want to strap in my bag with a seatbelt :-). It's a clean solution.

Before I got the car, I wasn't sure about the wheels either. I thought I wanted to trade them for Style 220's. No way. In person they're sick. They look aggressive but not over the top - perfect. Wheels are a subjective thing, but I think BMW nailed it with these. For those thinking about ZCP, if you're on the fence, do it.

Thanks to Tom and the crew at EAS for some nice work - more to come. The photography is clean, much better than mine. See everyone at Bimmerfest.

As a former Piano Black trim owner, you should wax/seal the trim once every three months. It's very sensitive to any kind of contact, and the wax/sealant will help prevent any marring or scratching.
