Airbag Question

Are side curtain (head protection) airbags standard on all 2001 BMW 3-series? I have a 325I - 2001. I know i have the regular side impact airbags, but not sure about head protection.

The A-pillars will have a very long panel insert with faint "HPS" markings. Look near the windshield on either side, you should be able to tell easily if you have HPS or not.

Head Protection System

Since you said you have to check to see if you have them or not, does that mean that you can not automatically assume HPS is a STANDARD option for the 2001 year? I'll check for the HPS marking after work today. Thanks.
