Sedan owners with race/perf seats come in! need help with seatbelt

Hey guys I wanted to get some opinions before I go about doing this. I installed a set of bmw performance seats yesterday and came across one problem... the seatbelt does not hook up to the seat. In stock application, the seatbelt attaches directly to the stock seat but I do not see any option for attachment with the performance seat. Where did you end up mounting the seatbelt? Directly to the floor?

Im surprised i did not get any suggestions from the community on this topic but i guess ppl are not installing race seats n there sedans.

Anyway. Screwing the seatbelt bracket into the floor was not a viable option for me. I ended up integrating the seatbelt bracket into the seat bracket which came out perfect and it behaves just like stock as it slides with the seat. I will try and post a pic up.

This case is closed
