From what I have heard (just at dealer today), there won't be a switch...but the dealer can disable the passenger airbag...and that it will be a dealers perogative as to whether they will perform the service or not.

: Also, as the government paperwork only covers (from the dealers understanding) switches that disable and re-enable the airbag, while this is a disabling of it altogether (which is in direct conflict with US standards that all passenger cars of this era have airbags...I assume they mean working ones), there will probably be a grat deal of confusion as to whether it is legal to disable it permanantly.

There will be (is) a switch, the only thing left to debate at this time is if your dealer will choose to install it (lawyers). The wiring harness was located in my car, and it is my understanding it is in every Z3 built in 1998 (but pre 1998 Z3s might get a compatible switch and wiring kit at a later time).

I've even seen the wiring diagram for the switch itself, it has a LED light and a on/off switch (it also appears that it will not be located in the center blank gauge location, but I can not confirm this).

Availibility of the switch will depend on your production date (MM/YY).
