Challenge harness bar

The harness bar from Challenge Engineering allows for easy installation of a four point harness without forcing the M3 enthusiast to make any major permanent modifications to the carís interior or drill any holes in the carís chassis. Challenge uses 1.75 OD x .095 wall thickness DOM seamless steel tubing to construct the bar and finishes the piece in a high quality textured powder coat.

The harness bar includes all of the brackets necessary to complete installation, and fits easily behind the b pillar for a seamless look and an easy DIY install process.

Price = $635.00

Looks good - I'd consider one of these if I didn't have a cage already!

If you opt to leave your pillar covers off, it can be taken on and off in about 3-5 minutes. We tried our best to actually make it look intergrated into the car with the pillar cover installed, but can be used with them off as well.

If looking from the outside, you MIGHT just catch part of the corner of the bar at the lower edge of the rear side window. The matte texture finish of the bar makes it blend in to the oem interior well

The harness bar can be used with stock seats, though it is not recomended to use harnesses on oem seats unless they have the provisions for harness pass through.
