I tried the CG Lock this weekend. A definite improvement over standard 3 point. A bloody clever little bit of engineering! However it's no match for a full 6 point harness.

I am going to go ahead with a bulkhead mounted shoulder strap setup. I'm using the Schroth FIA approved backing plates from HMS.

I also agree with Vanne that the bulkhead is where BMW chose to mount the roll over hoops and the seat belt mounts. In the area of "liability avoidance" I suspect they did a fair amount of testing on the strength of the bulkhead.

I also agree with Vanne this is a personal choice and, given it likely would not pass tech at an SCCA like event without considerable expense spent on testing, each person needs to decide if they are OK with it and that the groups they lap with are OK with it.

I am *hoping* I can get my seat and harness installed by the end of the month, but I need to make time for it - lots of summer family stuff on the go.
