Just bought an 06 997 C2s and am loving every minute, but that is off topic.

I have two boys, ages 9 and 7. Both weigh over 70 pounds. The older one is 5 ft and the younger one is about 4'8".

They have been riding in the back, but it is getting a bit tight for the older boy.

Under Illinois law he can ride in the front. But do I leave the airbag on?

My initial thought was "no", but the manual says "the airbag must be activiated for children weighing over 59lbs"

Can anyone provide clarity through the darkness?

The airbags in my 2006 987S are automatic and the "smart airbags" type. They turn on or off based on the passangers weight. My daughters are 6 and 9. When they sit in the car the airbags automatically turn off. You chould check out the Illinois DMV web site too.

I am surprised the 997 does not have smart airbags.

I think it does. It was the manual that confused me. I guess it could be as simple as letting the computer decide. It just struck me as odd that the manual says the airbag is supposed to be on if the kid weighs more than 56lbs. Something must be lost in the translation.

THANKS

Slowmo, do you have a light down by the center console that says when the airbags are de-activated. FYI- I still use a booster seat for my 6 year old.

Congrats on your new 997! Awesome!

Yes, the light is there. I have not had one of the kids up there to see whether it shuts down.

Thanks, I am digging the car. Can't find enough excuses to run errands!
