I thoroughly doubt it has an airbag. I am 95% sure that they didn't get airbags until '88.

I notice also that it has a 'ropey' aftermarket gearknob - looks nasty - almost like someone has tried to put E36 steering wheel and knob in there.

As for the heated seats - my ex germany '88 has them and so did quite a few others I looked at. I'm in the UK and the spec is slightly different to the US tho' - The US cars all seem to be quite similar in their spec - the range of different specs here can be quite mind blowing.

From my data the elipsoid lights were fitted to the European cars in Early '88, my car has a build date of Feb and does not have them. I think I'll probably retrofit them tho'.

Good luck.

PS, that car looks like it definitely needs some TLC, but a good clean up might change all that.
