Yeah $420 is a good deal. Used round airbag sells around 450 to 480 at Ebay. For new round Airbag at ebay sells around $560. I think Dealer sells then around $700+. I bought one recently at ebay for $450

That's NOT a round airbag for sport or M3 steering wheels. I have just recently bought one as I said above and after all the bids have been entered at the end, it has been constantly from 450 to 480 range. I've remembered one auction went up high as 500, crazy!

It's the round airbag that I've posted the picture above. That airbag goes both to the sport steering wheel that you have and the M3 steering wheel.

Okay, here's a round airbag being auctioned at ebay...starting price is at 299 but as usual people starts bidding on it when it about to close. Be prepared and I won't be suprised that the final bid price will be more than 400. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2000-...QQcmdZViewItem

Yeah, you could wait a year to find a round airbag for less than $400, and there is no guarantee that you'll find one, even at $400. You could wait a long, long time.

if u find a USED airbag, you probably don't wanna put it in your car as it wouldn't do much again in an accident. just a heads up.

Yeah BIG difference. I've seen a deployed airbag from one of these wheels before. The side of the airbag housing is ripped to sh!t. The round part facing the driver acts like a hinged door and it blows the side out. You can't put it back in or disguise it. It's toast when it's deployed.
