This is why I’d never own a (modern) classic Ferrari with airbags.
Since the 456 was discussed recently, it’s about the newest I’d consider and only if I could import a Euro-spec car from 1994. The last model year where it wasn’t required.
No obsolete ECUs to deal with when they crap out and who knows how those ancient bags and explosives would behave if they’d get activated...

Dear FCA Members,
Our friends at Ferrari North America have asked us to send out this notice as a reminder to get your airbags replaced.  Below you will find a list of the affected cars along with what you need to do to have them corrected.  In the past, replacements were not readily available but I have been assured that they have stock and they are ready to replace them for you.  Details on how you can get this corrected are listed below.
