Default airbag and indicators

I guess you can turn of the airbag in the front passenger seat for having a baby chair?

why is fisker delivering the car with orange indicators at the wheel arch in europe since its allowed to have white ones here that look much nicer. Do you think its a hard thing to change if you find the parts ?

Default RE: airbag and indicators

In the US they are orange indicators, in Europe orange reflectors.

Indicators on the side of the car are not mandatory in Europa. but they could not afford to build two arches (with intrusion for the US and without intrusion for Europe, so they simply put reflectors in). White reflectors would have been nicer though (or chrome!). I don't think you can find parts, the shape is unique to the Karma. Maybe you can have them sprayed. Or even chromed.

So the European version doesn't have lights on the wheel arches? I actually like the look especially at night!!!

Perhaps an aftermarket company will develop a clear reflector insert.

Until then, painting the reflectors in body-color paint should look better. However it could be a difficult match with some of the diamond dust paints.

Yeah, makes me worry about the availability of touch up paint, or don't we do that to exotics? Being my first, I wouldn't want to break protocol. lol.
