25,000 bucks. Bring another 25k along to Chennai so I can pocket it after getting the swift zxi airbag kit.
I was told this price when I asked my regular spares seller for the regular swift steering.
C'mon guys! A Swift Zxi costs ~5.5 lakhs. You think the airbags alone cost 25% of the car's value?

Do you know if all the airbags in a 7 series Deploy they write off the car & give you a new one?

So yes I believe that the Airbags do cost a lot of money even if I wouldnt want them to

The more practical option would be to see the car off and get another preowned Zxi
