Wow. I consider myself pretty well "in the know" when it comes to stangs, but I was completely unaware that side airbags were even offered on S197s. Here comes the ultimate stupid question: How do you know if you have them? Were they automatically included on certain trims (I have an '06 GT Premium), or were they always an option? (In which case, I know I don't have them because they aren't on my window sticker.)

I believe they are only available as an Option.. hey this makes me wonder, can I buy seats with side air impact airbags and have them installed?? I know our stang got the five star thing, but I would like to be more protected... does anybody know if this is even possible? or would I have to buy a new ECU...?

Mine already had them from the dealer, but it wasn't a selling point. It just so happened the color I wanted also happened to have the side airbags. But my insurance company didn't give me an additional discount. I was told that I have maxed out discounts. Insurance premiums do have a floor, below which companies will refuse to give you.
