i've just realised, when i crashed back in september my air bag didn't go off. (quite glad really as it would have cost a lot more to fix with a deployed airbag) but it was a 45mph impact so should it have gone off?
i know that the previous owner replaced the bumpers from plastic to body coloured, is there a sensor or anything that may have been damaged or even forgotten?
cheers, Tom

Yep, collision sensor is normally behind the front bumper somewhere. If it was faulty or disconnected you would get a warning light on the dash. Strange it didnt go off though.
