If the head protection bags don't go off on a roll, they aren't of much use. I guess they don't have them on the E36.
: Rolls are different from other accidents in that the energy is dissipated over a much longer period of time at a much lower level of force. The force of the impact may never have exceeded the level necessary to deploy the bags.
: : : Facts:
: : : a) No injuries
: : : b) The air bags did not go off.
