BMW Seat Belts and Racing Harnesses for BMW 3 Series E46 (1999-2005)

Clear BMW chassis
The advantage of racing harnesses cannot be understated. Aside from the obvious improvement to your safety, harnesses keep your body planted in the seat and allow a much more confident and focused driving experience. Without your body strapped in you're constantly fighting to keep youself planted in the seat and these forces distract you from controlling the car. It also prevents you from getting and maintaining the ideal leverage point for working the steering wheel and pedals. Turner Motorsports offers several harness and seat belt accessories to make the use of harness belts easier.

These little guys are one of our favorite final touches on a race car build. After years of requests, we now are able to supply these for more than just our race team's use. These aluminum collars bolt on your roll cage's harness bar (or any bar for that matter) and help keep your seat belt harnesses from sliding on the bar. You can use just one pair to accomplish this, or 2 pairs (4 collars total) for the best looking and functioning install. The beauty of these collars (besides being lightweight and looking clean) is that they can be adjusted from side to side, which is convenient if you change you seat or belt configuration. They can also be used for other applications as well, such as taming that helmet net strap. If you're looking for a clean, professional looking solution, these are a superb final touch. As used on our own Championship winning TMS E46 and E90 race cars.

We offer these guide collars in two sizes: for 1.5" OD roll bar tubing or for 1.75" OD roll bar tubing (choose your size below). Check your cage tubing diameter especially if your car was built in Europe as they used metric tubing sizes. If you need a metric size, contact us. Also measure with paint applied, not bare tubing. These are sold by the pair, so be sure to modifying your quantity below (or in the cart) if you need them for both seats.

There are many benefits to installing harnesses in your E46 -

  • maintain a proper driving position
  • keep you planted in the seat and not bracing with your left leg or shoulder
  • lower lap times thanks to improved driver confidence
  • advanced technology is safer than standard 3-point belts
  • Schroth Quick-Fit harness integrates with standard tensioner and airbag logic
  • Quick Fit Pro tested and approved with HANS device

It's hard to put into words just how effective harnesses are in improving your driving experience. In addition to the obvious safety benefits, harnesses make you a better driver by removing distractions so your hands and feet are used for car control instead of bracing against a door panel or dead pedal. Everyone with harnesses will agree: they are a must-have upgrade to your driving experience and they wish they had installed them sooner.

The Schroth Quick Fit Pro tuning harnesses are the most advanced 4-point safety belt on the market. They are perfect for daily street or dual-duty street-track use. Quick Fit Pro harnesses mount with the existing female belt receptacles and the reinforced seat belt anchor points in the chassis. By using the standard receptacles the vehicle's SRS system remains active, adjusting airbag deployment and tensioner response accordingly. Other harnesses that do not clip into the stock belt recepacles may not integrate with the SRS with potentially harmful results. On factory BMW systems the SRS also employs a pyrotechnic charge that automatically tightens the belt in anticipation of a crash. All Schroth harnesses feature their asm technology that prevents your body from sliding under the lap belt and redces head and chest deceleration forces. Schroth has revolutionized the racing and tuning harness industry which is why you will find their safety belts on everything from rally cars to military helicopters.

Quick Fit and Quick Fit Pro harnesses are vehicle-specific with the correct anchor points and seat belt clips included. The main harness is easily un-clipped and removed from the car with almost no trace left behind. Quick Fit and Quick Fit Pro use different latch types with the Pro being compatible with a HANS device and a slightly better and safer overall design. All Schroth Quick Fit harnesses are TUV approved and meet US DOT seatbelt regulations.

Optional: Schroth Grips. Schroth harness grips slide into the ends of your Schroth harnesses and give your fingers something to lock onto when tightening the harness. Otherwise, your hand - or glove - has to yank on the end of the strap which might be slippery. Sold per harness for both shoulder and both lap belts (4 Grips total).

Seat Compatability: Schroth approves this harness only for stock seats or seats that have passed independent crash testing. The seat design must have a separate headrest and backrest. Single piece headrest and backrest (e.g. - F8X M3/M4 seats, Porsche 911 seats) are not approved because the shoulder straps fall to the sides and will not secure the driver properly. Observe all guidelines and instructions for installation and fitment.

QuickFit Pro Harness Summary:

  • Suggested Use: track, autocross, daily driver
  • Shoulder Belt: 2" pull down
  • Lap Belt: 2" pull down
  • Buckle: FE cam lock push button
  • Installation: click in/click out with stock receptacles; partial permanent bolt-in
  • Seat Compatability: approved only for stock seats
  • HANS compatible? Yes.

When using any racing harness in any environment - even normal street use - adhere to this advice: "all the way tight, all of the time". Never loosen or slacken the belts for comfort or convenience! A loose racing harness will not protect you.

Racing harnesses are required at any respectable track or strip, but they tend to run upwards of hundreds of dollars. RaceQuip designs and builds safety equipment for just this issue! Since 1975, RaceQuip has been building some of the highest quality racing safety gear on the market. Their high quality and low cost safety gear is the result of wanting to provide "The Best Value in Safety", that keeps drivers safe without draining their wallet.

The HANS/HNR harness set has narrow shoulder belts to better fit a head & neck restraint (HNR) like a HANS device.

All harness systems are constructed using drop-forged steel hardware for ultimate strength and reduced weight. All hardware is cadmium plated for added protection. They use only 3" premium polyester webbing and all belts are box-x pattern sewn to ensure uniform stitch length and strength. Belts and hardware are routinely tested to verify compliance with SFI 16.1 standards.

All of their harness sets feature a latch & link system to retain the belts. The latch & link system is distinguished by a pivoting "hammer," called a Duckbill, which locks all of the belts into place by snapping down into a detent. Both shoulder belts and the sub belt are hooked over the link; the link is inserted into the latch; the Duckbill is then brought down into and over the link, securely holding all of the pieces in place.

RaceQuip Latch & Link Harness Systems come as a "pull down" design. This means that the lap belts must be pulled down and away from the center latch mechanism to tighten. Since their belts are "double adjustable", lengths are easily adjusted on either end for ease of installation. Using the included three bar slide you can mount the belts by either wrapping them around a rollbar or by bolting them in place. Snap-in ends and eyebolts are sold separately if you want to install your belts in that manner.

Features and Specifications:

  • Exceeds SFI 16.1 Rating (SFI Tags Affixed)
  • NOT D.O.T. / FMVSS Certified for On Highway Use
  • Premium 3" Polyester Webbing
  • Twin Individual Shoulder Belts
  • 2" Shoulder Accomodates HNR / HANS Device
