    Does anyone else's front passenger airbag appear to be causing a slight bump in the dash? I noticed this the other day while driving (I figured this must be new as I hadn't noticed it before). I'm bringing my S into service for unrelated reasons so wanted to check with others before bringing it to the service tech's attention. Thanks!

    Definitely bring it to their attention... That seems like a significant safety issue potentially... I can say none of my airbags are bulging in any noticeable way...

    I can't really imagine any scenario in any car where an airbag area should be bulging. Its literally a controlled explosion lol...

    Are you going to ask the service tech,
    "Is that an airbag under the dash or it's just happy to see me?"

    I wouldn't even drive the thing. Take a picture, send it to service and see what they say. I doubt it is the actual airbag bulging, but I have no clue how those things work.
    I would strongly suggest letting them know now, rather than springing it on them when you arrive.
