tbh i dont think the SRi seats will be suitable for harnesses, as there is no ports on the seat where the harness can be run through, so if you do put them on the seats, they can just slide down the side.

Invest in a set of buckets, you can get them now from around £170 per seat, or even less.

harnesses arent safe with normal seats, if u bolt forward in the sri seat the harness would slip to the side, u need buckets for harnesses mate, trust me

I personally would'nt bother with harnesses m8, its a pain in the ass having to do and undo them everytime you get in and outta the car.

TBH the cheap harnesses with 2" straps are a bit tacky and look like ruck sack straps. Decent harnesses cost a fortune though. I've got some nice 3" 4 point Luke ones.

5 or 6 point harness have a groin strap, I dont fancy that. Although I could fit a 5th point to mine...

yes you can fit them to standard seats...

if you don't mind flying through the front windscreen in a crash. they will be dangerous, not perform well, and like everyone has said they WILL fall to the side

its FACT length, ive seen the evidence and ive experimented with all types of harness, they are suited for bucket seats only with enclosed points for the harness to rest(holes in the seat at back of ya head)
