I think he got the Schroth Quickfit McGyver version. It uses their basic harness along with bungee cord, duct tape, 6 paper clips (per side) and 2 sticks of gum.

Can't say, it's between me and my car.

Seriously...ran the M3 on the track today and I feel beat up. My side hurts from the side bolster digging into it. I did one lap with the seat belt not tensioned...I thought I was going to fall out of the car.

Not sure if this is a lime rock thing, an event thing, or a bmwcca thing, but the reg page for an upcoming event shows that no 4 point/comp harnesses are allowed this year. So, this may all be irrelevant. :/

Hey Bigjae, are you planning on posting pics of the harness? Would like to see them if you got it installed.
Thanks

Lol...the plan is to install them today but my should hurts. Not sure if I can do this with one arm.

If I bump this thread, then it will have pics and a DIY...or might be another teaser. Who knows, only one way to find out!

You are allowed DOT approved harnesses. The Rallye3 and Rallye 4 are DOT approved. The logic should follow that you are allowed the 3 and 4 by BMWCCA.

I am putting the Rallye 3 in this weekend, it is going to be a PITA to remove the parcel shelf to get to the C-pillar mounting point.

For those who worry about these things, the BMW manual states that the Powerlok bolts that hold the seat to the floor must not be re-used once removed and should be replaced by new ones. The tightening torque is 44Nm. I bought new bolts.

Yeah, I wish. The good thing is you can find the ralleye4s cheap at bimmerforums. Got mine for $85 shipped.

Submitted on behalf of Limey by a close friend

He just photoshopped the install photos. Hopefully he will post tonight after a delightful evening helping his GF complete a SWOT analysis...not on harnesses!

It always excites my wife when I start talking about a SWOT analysis and then mention harnesses
