I highly recommend the Schroth belts for a few reasons...first off, they install easily in most all passenger cars (especially Audis), and can be made to fit using stock mounting points for the seatbelts. Five point harnesses (though certified for full on racing, are overkill for the average track event and would require extensive modification to work in a street car without a roll cage. For the record, I can install a Schroth 3 or 4 point in most any Audi in about an hour-without any modifications to the car itself. Also, the rear mounting points have a detachable section so after the event the rear seat area can be easily cleared for passengers and such.
Secondly, aside from dropping $400 in a good seat, it is the biggest improvement you can make to compensate for average seats. If one thinks they need more supportive seats, try a harness and rethink, they hold securely and truly transform the dirving experience. From a safety concern they are very safe, I have never heard of an injury related to them, and I would wager that they many times safer than the stock seat belt system.
They are designed for street cars, not race cars, and they suit the need very well IMO.

harness. racer wholesale also sells real belt, and occasionally they
have good prices on TRW Sabelts. a no-frills latch-link system should
run about $70-$80 from summit racing or RW.
