Deactivated airbags...

Received the ED packet today - exactly 3 weeks before delivery. The car has been in "Awaiting Transport" status for a few weeks now. To my surprise the "rear side airbags" option in the doc I received today has a "(deactivated)" qualifier. Did a search and found the following thread which explains the reason behind it.


I remember the salesman trying briefly to discourage me from this option but he didn't mention the deactivation part. I do have 2 kids - almost teenagers and would like the bags to be active.
From the thread above it seems that I'll have to wait for the US dealer to finish the job. Or can this be done at the Delivery Center? Anyone did it?
Thank you all, this forum is a great resource.
