your backseat passengers, no.

Your front passenger, yes.

no left or center passengers in the rear with the harness in my case. Passenger side is in the stock location still. One person can sit in the back, on the right side.

There are a few reasons why I won't recommend a Schroth Quickfit belt for you for anything other than auto-x.
- They're designed for OE seats with the pretensioning seat belt latches.
- The rear belt angle is like 30-45ļ past your shoulders (spinal compression on frontal impact).
- using a harness on the street will make it hard to do simple things, like looking over your shoulder (which is important), or reaching the radio/glovebox, closing the door once you're buckled in, etc.
- It's illegal to use a 4-6pt on the street in Canada (so I'm told), both DOT and T‹V certifications are pretty much meaningless here.
- If you get into an accident and get injured, if your insurance finds out about the belts they can deny you coverage.
- You shouldn't technically be driving hard enough on the street to require a harness

I do plan to get a belt, but again, just for auto-x use.

I am using the factory latches with the pretensioners. The Wedge Engineering base I used has accomodations for the bolting up of the stock latch. As far as legality, I guess I'll find out...
