Race seats/airbag light advice

Plan on putting a pair of evo's in my e46 m3. I plan on leaving stock belts on for the time. I don't want the air bag light on. Can someone send me a link to a module/emulator that is plug and play to trick the light to not come on. Also what are the steps regarding disconnecting the battery and touching terminals or something like that?

Would like to know also. I cut out the sensor from my stock seats and placed them in my race seats. It worked for awhile, but the airbag light came on the other day. I rather just bypass the seat sensor if I can.

There is a way to bypass the sensor by splicing a resistor (IIRC) into the seat's wiring harness. I didn't bother doing this in my race car so I don't know exactly how to do it, but I know it can be done because there are tons of guys on M3Forum who have done this. I'd search/make a post over there...

Search e46 seat mat sensor bypass or resistor on eBay. They are like $5 and work. I have one in my car. Just unplug seat mat sensor and plug it into the resistor from eBay
