Default Cobra Nogaro/Brey Krause Upgrade

Hey all - just wanted to share some photos of install I completed (with some trusted assistance) last weekend. One of the things that will always keep my E46 in the garage is it's ability to provide a comfortable jaunt to and from the track & these seats/BK Harness make the car so much better at playing both roles. The backroad driving with the 3pt is noticeably more enjoyable; the seats allow the car to give much more feedback to the driver and man does this make a difference - can only imagine how it will be at the next track day in Aug. The ease of fitting the 5pt Schroth Flexi 2x2 with the clips (and used a regular receptacle clip for the inner lap belts.

Oh and what a joy to be almost 2 inches lower in my car --- changes everything for the better AND these seats will keep you comfy for a trip.

Here are the parts I used:

R-1246 rear deck harness mounts
R-9224 e46 Nogaro mounts
R-9226 (driver) and R-9227 (passenger) - Slider Release Handles
R-9228 Driver sub strap mount
R-9229 Passenger sub strap mount
R-9225 clip in lap belt mounts for stock sliders

Looks fantastic! Are these nogaros custom upholstered? With OE or other leather?

Thanks - had them done in black leather with black stitching by cobra. Can really feel the weight difference too - you really notice it when lifting out an OEM seat with the works haha

Thanks - coming from your car, I appreciate it I didn't think it would match as well as it did actually. Nice way to lose 60lb to boot.
