Installing spraco seats

Hey guys, any idea how to code out my front seat airbags after I install my sparcos? Trying to do it at home. Thanks

Seems like a lot to mess up. I can turn wrenches like a beast. But computer stuff is my downfall

My take is that it's more intimidating to look at than it is to do. The most difficult step is finding a non-sketchy way to get the software, and I think the links I have are the least sketch way. After that, I think that the risks of you totally bricking the car are low, so long as you remember to always make a back up you can restore from.

Caveat: I work in tech, so most of my life is sketchy software and debugging strange errors.

Yeah I turn wrenches and wrap cars. Computers frustrate the hell out of me. I'm definitely not comfortable trying to do this myself. Mechanical stuff I can do almost anything. Computers make me want to punch the wall.

I'm probably just going to take the car to EAS in SoCal and have them do it. It's not worth my time and frustration dicking with it. I hate computers. I like to turn wrenches lol

How much did it end up costing you if you don't mind me asking?
