    I'm looking for someone to install one in my 2008 Roadster - preferable bay area or SoCal no further South than LA. I'm near Monterey. Lotus dealership in Bay Area has never done it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Yes! It is required if you are traveling with a child / carseat. An airbag can kill a child. Some vehicles never came with a way to disable it. My 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 truck has a key you can insert and turn to turn it off.

    If you look at the data, children that were "killed by airbags", most of them were not properly restrained, in an appropriate child seat or sitting on the lap of an adult.
