Where to buy new seatbelt replacement?

Wondering on any sugs for buying new seatbelts? I'd like to replace my existing ones...I don't want to have to do custom stitching etc so I am looking for the whole thing ready to go and bolt on following the DIY guide here. Pelican parts has each side listed around $230 for oem and sun coast parts has a deviated color kit for $500 but not sure I want "colors". (still deciding if yellow belts would look too garish with rest of the interior being black). So I guess Pelican with OEM Black an option but wondering if there are more cost effective options...

Thanks
comet

I forgot to say reason for replace is retract works ok ish and definitely tightens when driving etc..but when I get out of car, it doesnt retract so well all the way without feeding it in. Also the driver side is missing the black plastic dot that keeps the seatbelt clip from dropping to the floor... So I think I need to replace the actual unit not just straps.

As for color my interioris solid black... if I had a yellow center console and roll etc then I could see it...heh.

BMW has replacement black plastic "dot" if you can get parts dept to lookup part # & cleaning seatbelt web material should help retracting if you want to go low budget.
