I was reading on ebay that approval expires on all seats

Yes all safety equipment in the motorsport have expire dates, but at least i know the seats are up to motorsport standards

Thats a bit more imfo here viewtopic.php?f=72&t=8724

I went for the 4 point Luke Harness from Hanger 111 for the drivers side, this is the wrap around type for the shoulder straps which go round the Roll bar/hoops. The left side lap strap goes to the rear inboard seat mount, the right side goes to the original mounting point on the sill were the seat belt is conected.
