Nope, just the wheel. I already had the sport steering wheel so I was able to transfer the airbag over.

Nope, you're considered an intelligent human being.

I like a few of Lexus' vehicles, they're just grossly overpriced IMO. A family member had a SC 430 that I had the chance to ride along in and I was not at all impressed with the package/experience considering the price.
