That's why I keep asking if our airbag goes off, do we get a Mercedes star imprinted on our forehead from the plastic air bag cover :rolleyes:

Actually if everything it set up correctly, it wouldn't hit you in the face (unless you are hanging on the wheel (like the little old lady) while driving), but rather it should inflate fully right before your face hits it.

I wish it were as painless as just having a ' star ' imprint stamped on my forehead. LOL.

I was involved in a very bad accident once in my 500E W124, as most of the skin was missing from my forehead.

Not to mention, almost my whole faced was covered in blood as I was transported to the ER.

Trust me fellas, it is no fun at all when a deploying airbag meets head on with your face!

I officially replace snu-snu ceremonies by the Russian airbag test for member punishment from now on the R129 forum.

Now gentlemen, beware of cars with the recent knee airbag technology ;)
