Coupe Seatbelt Guide

I got sick of stretching back to get the seatbelt, so I bought the device shown from the eBay store bmw_direct. Sadly, they only deliver into Europe. BMW Genuine Left + Right Headrest Seat Belt Holders Set 52302208036 26 quid.

That actually doesn't look that bad. Looks pretty factory.

They do sell factory gear. I bought my Jack Kit there and brought it home in my bag. My wife wasn't happy about me shedding 5 Kgs to her bag so I could carry the jack.

I really like the seatbelt thing in the M3 Coupe. Its like a little robotic arm that pushes the seatbelt up to you. Saw it when my dealer took me in an M3 to go take delivery of my 135i. Tripped me out when I saw it, lol.

That almost looks like the same thing that you can get for the convertible. Someone was just selling one about a month ago.

I have these, but only on driver side. The passengers were clueless and used too much force.

I had to mod them to be more stable.

The hook part that disconnects from the headrest needed to be switched to the opposite side:
My driver side has the Left hand headrest mount & right/passenger side clip-in hook

Google is your friend. About $35/pr.

Two reviews on Amazon (under different listings - both more expensive than non-Amazon listings) - one good, but one bad. The bad says they come apart too easily if there's any downward pressure on them. Presumably, that's so they don't interfere with the seat belt in an accident.

see the posts above, I have the BMW part. Doing my mod makes the hook face the driver more, thus less strain on the release clip

I will try to snap a pic tonight when I get home

Yea.. under $40, I think Amazon sells them! I even seen a few 1Addicts selling theirs from time to time. I was thinking of buying one and modifying it to mount a small video camera on it. But I never got around to that.

It's better the hook unclips if you lean on it than breaks. I've only done this once and thought I had broken it ... but no, it was fine. It just clips back in via two clips that act like a hinge.

it's a lot easier to grab the belt if you reach down and pull it up rather than turn around and pull it from head height.

Travel & Comfort Base and Hook

I know I am getting old, so when I got sick of my suit coats falling on the floor, I added the Travel & Comfort Base Carrier and Hook to hang my suit coats on. The coat hanger BMW sell is ridiculously priced, so I am using the hook as shown.

I'll try not to hang my weekly shopping on them. LOL. I doubt a suit coat will do much damage.
