5/6 point Harnesses?

Hello everyone, I have an E85 Roadster that I'm thinking about putting bucket seats and harnesses in. I can find seats and brackets relatively easily, but my question is with the harnesses. For all my fellow Roadster/Coupe owners, where are your attachment points? I'm not looking to get a custom fabricated Roll Cage just for this, keep in mind.

Have a read at this for a sec.

To my knowledge for the reasons stated in that thread no ones making strictly a harness bar for us. Also make sure you pass the "broom stick" test when dropping in your seats before getting too involved. If you fail the broom stick in a roll over you're melon is squished.

A more proper way :

When it is vehicle safety, stick to stock, or do em all. BMW spent millions to ensure the vehicle is safe in all sitautions. Do not selectively do parts and expect it to work when things do go south

You will need someone to build you a proper rollbar to accomodate your harness, ensure it is someone who can build a safe rollbar, not just one that looks good

Here's one example:
