Let's look at it this way. If you add a cage to your xB, you are adding steel to the interior that is already supposed to protect the occupants. If you have passengers in the back seat and they go sliding, when will more than likely have an impact w/ the cage. Sure you can add padding, but let's look at the big picture. Are you going to race your xB, is it for show points (what is that 1 additional point for the interior?), and do you plan on having others ride w/ you? Its fine for the driver if you have a fixed back seat w/ harnesses, but what about your other passengers? Plus the added weight of the cage.
I've thought about it also, but I want to survive a collison and know my passengers are safe, and not have to worry about additional injuries because of the cage. Plus I'm not into modding cars to be different and to gain that one extra point for trophies. My kids come first.
