Mein Auto: 2008 BMW M5
Exclamation 2007 X3 Airbags

Daughter hit a wall. Steering wheel airbag deployed and both curtain bags deployed. Don't want to go thru insurance, living in NY insurance would skyrocket.
So the big question is can I R&R this myself. I do own a repair facility so I have the tools but never messed with airbags. Looking for some support and advice... Tnanks in advance

Not sure if the system needs to be reset or anything but the airbags you can pick up on eBay much cheaper than at a dealer. Make sure they are the same year. Of course there's always a risk with unknown used airbags.

Hope your daughter is okay. Airbags can be brutal.
