BMW Seat Belts and Racing Harnesses for BMW X Series E53 (2000-2006)

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.

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.

This Standard 5 Point Latch and Link Racing harness is RaceQuips most popular racing harness, priced at $74.99 or below while still being fully SFI 16.1 Approved.

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

There are many benefits to installing harnesses in your BMW -

  • 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

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 Rallye harnesses are Schroth's universal fit, bolt-in harness design that still meets DOT and TUV specs. The Rallye 4 harness fits most BMWs better than a Rallye 3 type thanks to its four mounting points that bolt to four existing anchor points in the BMW chassis: outboard lap belt anchor on B-pillar, inboard lap belt anchor on seat, and both rear seat belt anchors. The Rallye harnesses are a fixed, semi-permanent install but a quick-connect buckle is included in the rear seat harness so that the front and rear sections can be separated and tucked away when not in use. This also allows you to use the stock 3-point seatbelts in the front and rear seats without obstruction. All Schroth harnesses feature their asm technology that prevents your body from sliding under the lap belt and redces head and chest deceleration forces. Rallye belts are not side-specific; they fit either the Left or Right side of the vehicle.

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.

E36 Fitment Note: a special bolt is required for installation on the stock E36 seat. Make sure you order this bolt for any E36 installations. Click here for the link to the bolt.

Rallye 4 Harness Summary:

  • Suggested Use: autocross, daily driver
  • Shoulder Belt: 2" pull down
  • Lap Belt: 2" pull down
  • Buckle: Rallye push button
  • Installation: permanent bolt-in
  • Seat Compatability: approved only for stock seats with headrest separated from backrest
  • HANS compatible? No.

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.
