Great minds think alike!

Swapping colored belts had been on my list forever and could never find a source due to the liability. Like you mentioned, the price is high since new hardware is combined with certified webbing and assembled here in the States.

I got mine from Gaphix Design Haus which just started offering them for the E46 M3. The issue with the E92 M3 front belts is that the pyrotechnics are now located on the retractors, so that means that the belts must be transported as a hazardous material. o_O

Luckily, Gaphix says that angle is covered and they should be releasing those pretty soon. Here are some pics of the belts:

Those look great! I had really debated between swapping the webbing for red or sticking with the OEM silver and just ended up going the more subtle approach. But damn that orange accented interior looks fantastic!

Thanks. Yeah it's the "speed cloth"/leather. I thought the OEM silver belts looked good with the cloth stichting stripe down the middle....

Looks good! About how much is this costing people?
