Dealer was able to lock down 16 allocations procured of the soon to be gone CS. Various options. Hit me up if you're looking for a set.

I could ask but don't know if there is an incentive given the limited number of seats left.

A friend of mine got a pair of leather/heater CSs from you. Looking forward to installing them in his M5

It was hugely uncomfortable, made it difficult to buckle/unbuckled, and I'd bet unsafe-- as it would have to straighten before it could become load bearing, and I don't know if the receiver would hold up to that kind of twisting force.
I took the plastic surrounding the buckle hole off. That allowed the buckle to have a more natural angle.

On the Profi SPG XL (seat pictured), there is no plastic surround to remove.

I assume you mean the pole position? If so, good tip for people running that seat!

How's your OEM receiver positioned to where you can use the extender? I'm back to daily driving my E46 again and want to keep my Recaro SPGs + 3 point belt combo.

I'm doing it with custom floor plates in my M coupe, so I made the plate in a way to to get the receiver slightly below the seat belt hole. I'm pretty short too so the seat itself is mounted decently high which helped.
