I've had an accident in my previous 156, and at the end of the day, its the last thing in an accident to keep you alive.
the accident i was in was very serious, no fatalities. Me and my girlfriend were travelling along a country road doing 50-60Mph and going round a gradual bend, the car was snaking, i managed to straighten the car but it went the other way, side of the car hit a big tree where the 'A' pillar is on the end of the wing. The passenger footwell, (where my girlfriend was) was about 6" wide after the accident. the car rolled and overturned and we had to crawl out of the rear window upside down.
All the airbags deployed, if there was a fault with the airbag system, i wouldn't be here today.
If you don't want to spend money getting it working correctly, then you are decreasing you're chance of surviving an accident.
That 156 saved my life, and i feel even more safe that I've had a major accident in one.
