Recaro Pole Position - Anyone make them work on '09+ cars?

I have a new set of recaro PP and all mounting hardware but haven't been able to find a solution to the error codes and airbag functionality issues in my '11. The MS emulator that EAS sells doesn't work on '09+ cars. Anyone figured out how to eliminate error codes and retain airbag functionality?

Nope, I have been waiting for EAS to make the MS emulator for my '10...I live with the codes, looks like a christmas tree all lit up. ha

I know you've been patient.

Active Headrest-equipped seats will be covered as well.

Thanks Tom. Will this retain the airbag functionality or does it eliminate the code but also turn off the airbags? What does the current emulator do for '08 models?

Passenger dashboard airbag will be disabled, the overhead lamp is illuminated as a reminder (since this is intended as a race part).

All other airbags are unaffected.
