I know the guys over in the Miata forum often remove the air bags. It gets complicated because there are a lot of fail safes on warning lights and buzzers. I am thinking about this myself as My Miata's air bag light is going off. I makes you think you have a good running car but the air bag is more expensive than the car is worth (in the case of many 190's) what do you do? Leave it in, remove it, replace. I could not see replacing it myself, unless I really wanted the car. I would think the concern would be that the sensors might not be functional or the gas canister could have leaked. I think the fear is from the manufacturers worrying that they might not go off as designed. IMHO
