Thumbs Up Seatbelt tip/trick

Hey guys, here is a trick I learned from an older guy who did a ride-along with me at a recent auto-x. It helps keep you planted tight in your seat. With a power seat, this is easy to do.

-Turn off DSC (always a good reminder!)
-Adjust seat to your driving position and buckle seatbelt.
-move the seat back about 3-4 inches
-Pull up on the upper belt to make the lap belt tight against your body.
-Quickly jerk the upper belt downwards to make it lock
-Move the seat forward while keeping hold of the belt so it stays locked. As you move forward, the upper belt will tighten up against your body and it will stay locked there.

This helps you stay locked in your seat and you don't have to be pulling on the steering wheel when going through corners.

In my M3, I set memory 1 to my regular driving position, and mem 2 for my auto-x position.

i just do the plug in --> hold belt.. unplug, twist the male end a few times and plug it back in. helps the lap belt from keep moving but not the shoulder belt. maybe i'll try this.. even though my car doesnt have power seats and it'd probably be impossible to hold the shoulder belt tight while adjusting the seat foward.
