Where are people purchasing this from? The only place I could find was nigel-jdm, but it does not show the part #. Would like to get the direct dual-stage replacement SU003-03413

Hey, did you ever find out where to get the dual stage bag from? I'm in the same pit and I can't figure out where to get this airbag 😔

This is not necessary. All you need to do is install the bomb into the new airbag cover. I recently purchased for 400 GBP from the UK on ebay. The seller has 4 still for sale, all taken from new cars stripped and converted to track.

Yes. It was cheaper than purchasing from Nigel JDM

I have now successfully installed my GT86 airbag. The install was so easy.

Disclaimer:
Follow my steps below at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damage to your vehicle or personal injury resulting from incorrect installation. Please do so carefully and ensure to hook up the new airbag identical to the original.

#1 Disconnect negative battery terminal
#2 Using flathead screwdriver push pins in on left, right and underside of steering wheel to release each clipped section of the airbag
#3 Disconnect orange and black terminals and ground wire and the airbag is free
#4 Unscrew bomb from Scion airbag and reuse nuts to attach to GT86 airbag in the same orientation (ensure the bomb is fastened tightly)
#5 Attach color coded terminals accordingly and ensure to reconnect the ground wire
#6 Firmly push airbag into steering wheel to connect airbag at push pins points (I pushed at all three clip points to ensure airbag was completely clipped in)
#7 Reconnect negative battery terminal
#8 Start car to ensure airbag warning does not come on
#9 Installation complete: Enjoy your GT86 authenticity
