Are your new OEM Airbags brand new in a dealer box? No, we buy surplus items and returns from dealers and other core distributors. These are generally open box items and some that have been returned. They are considered new because they have not been installed on a car before and therefore a VIN number was never assigned to the part. However, as opposed to a used airbag, a new surplus airbag is generally very clean or may have some very minor imperfections that when compared to new dealer price, most people will be happy with the cost savings.
