Yep will be a big problem for alot of people, there must be no error lights showing not just airbag.

The same new rules applies here in Sweden (from 1st Feb), and I spoke to an Alfisti in Germany who confirmed that there's new regulations there too. It seems to be an EU thing.

For this very reason, I had my MOT done early in March this year as my airbag light is on at the moment. I know I'll have to get it sorted by next MOT though... The number of scrapped cars is going to go up coz of these rules no doubt.
