I remember this being a big thing at one point where airbags were supposed to 
stop working and we were all going to die in horrible crashes.Last I heard it 
turns out that nobody really knows the effective lifespan of an airbag.
If you could use it as a negotiating tactic I'd say go for it.

Based on being notified of an age extension on an older MB, I have to assume 
that there is an "Use By" date for air bags. I have seen similar stickers on my 
cars.  That being said, I've never heard of anyone ever replacing all of their 
air bags based on their age....
