Subject: Airbags tested on 9000

I crashed my car ;-( into a wall yesterday. It wasn't at high speed and no one was hurt. I can now say that airbags do work. Damage i have is the following. Broken front glass (probably due to a glitch that was there allready). One lamp broken. both side signals got broken at there fixing points. front bumper of course and the grill. Also the 2 airbags exploded. It's a 9000 cde from 94. I went to the garage and they say that it will set me back something around 10.000 $ The high cost is because of the exploded air bags. Problem is that i was going to sell the car because of a big journey next year. Only thing i can do is try to sell it to the highest bidder and maybe get back some 2.000 $ max. Even if i get it fixed i will never get the money back out of it. Anyone an idea to what would be the best option? Can you get it fixed and leave the airbags out? I have been told that some do it but it is illegal over here in Belgium. Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jo.
