Good find. I wonder if they changed something with the seatbelt bolts for the 2011 model, or if there was just a bad batch.

The NHTSA Campaign ID Number is 10V623000 I tried to find a picture or a diagram showing specifics, but this is all I could find.

I am hoping they replace them with the simpler BMW style: http://www.gizmag.com/50th-anniversary-3-point-seat-belt/11085/picture/68743/ I never did like the current one.
