Anyone have an lead on an inspection shop that is "trackcar" friendly? 

It might be a long shot but I'd like to get my car inspected after installing seats and a 4 point.

Austin Automotive Specialists on Parmer inspected my car with a roll bar, seats, and harnesses, and didn't bat an eye.

Seats and four point harness won’t be an issue, but you could go to Flamingo Automotive near the UT campus if you’re worried. I go to University Car Wash and have never had an issue. The E46 passed last month and it looks like this

I'm a lost soul.

I just go to sticker stop, they don't give a shit. MOMO wheel (working horn), ultrashield, and shcroth ASM. Last time I was up there didn't even have passenger seat, just ballast. As long as they can mark off working horn, parking brake, belts, seat, etc they don't really care about the safety stuff as far as I can tell.

Some of the inspection places complain about harnesses.  I've had one refuse to pass me.  I'd say auto-spec x2

Another vote for Austin Automotive Specialists on Parmer.  They passed me two years running.

Thanks guys.  When I have time, I will give Austin Automotive Specialists a shot.  My only concern is not having the OEM seat belts.
