After exchanging few emails with HMS, they're less worried about the factory roll hoops and more worried as to whether the bulkhead is strong enough to act as a mounting point for the shoulder harness. As per HMS, "Each individual shoulder belt can exert over 1500lbs of load on each individual eyebolt, and so the points these are anchored to need to be extremely strong, and I just don't have the confidence that these anchor points can provide that."

That assessment was not based on them having a Z4 to inspect in person but based on photos I had forwarded them. I know Vanne along with others went this route so maybe they could provide more insight but at the moment doesn't seem like I'll be pursuing this option. Ideally I wanted to do something like owner on their s2k sans the aftermarket roll bar (make sure to read down to post 15).

Btw uploaded old photos from my half cage install here.
