Belts and seats are now 5 years life + year of manufacture , so if you buy wisely you can in effect get 6 years out of them

No no no David don't do it ...what will you do with all that lovely free time that you senior chaps have on your hands to mess with cars plus the bonus of the old adrenalin rush off the start line?.
In 3 years I'll be joining you as a senior and can't wait to tinker in the garage all day long.

I have had to buy a new belt and I think it's madness, scruts should look at the condition of the belt and if it's involved in a big crash cut the labels off rendering it useless. The age thing is just a money maker, car manufactures don't ask you to replace your belts every five years and the belts sit in a heated car with sunlight though the window, so they age in sunlight story is rubbish. You could turn up in a ten fifteen year old Subaru or Evo in road going on seat belts and still have as big a crash as a sports libre car, but your seat belt at ten plus years old is classed as ok.
I've yet to see a valid reason for lifeing belts, I have bought new belts cause I like the sport but some times someone has to ask why??.....see you at the BSC Croft...

...but all SNELL 2015 helmets meet the FIA standard as well, so logic dictates that particular FIA standard (8859-2015 is it?) will last about 5 years longer than the equivalent SNELL 2010 standard (8860-2010 is it?). I've just bought a 2015 helmet after I discovered my previous helmet wasn't the SNELL 2010 model I was told it was when I bought it.

Another FIA regulation copied by the MSA because of Europe. More reasons to be getting out.
I suggest you all read the current FIA regs to give you direction as to the way we are heading.
It will be dated seats next as is the case with rallying in the UK already.
