You have choices. Go deal with the car you have, or get a different one with a switch in the dashboard to turn off the airbag. You want a switch, I want lights & sirens from the factory. Guess what? Doesn't come that way, so I had to install my own lights and sirens. Ah well. You don't see me here ranting that Saab is EMT and Firefighter-unfriendly, just because the siren and light kits aren't available from them, do you? > If you don't like my reply > just shup up and get on with your life!!! This has _got_ to be a troll post. OK, good one, you got me. Dave Hinz
