|Air Bag On-Off Switch (archive)|

For those of you (like me) that would like to be able to disable the passenger side airbag I would like to share with you some information.
First of all, it appears that all '98 Z3s (not just M roadsters) have the wiring in place for an air bag on-off switch. I don't think BMW wants us to know this just yet because they are trying to figure out the logistics and procedures that must be involved in providing this switch (which I feel compelled to add that they advertised as a standard feature when the M roadster was released).
I would advise those interested in receiving this switch to get one required task out of the way first. Even when BMW is finally ready to make good on their advertising and provide us with this switch, you will need to get a permission slip from Big Brother first.
I filled for this slip once before and finally received it in time to hand the (VIN Specific) permission slip to Mark when he bought the 1.9 from me. So I have once again mailed in the request form (link below) and I recommend you do the same.
