I definitely agree with the insurance and lack of support a bumper beam has on high speed crashes arguments (whether USDM or JDM), but aside from that i have two other questions that searches didn't answer. This first, and probably most important to me, is whether a low speed crash thats enough to bend the jdm bumper (like a parking accident) is enough to set off the airbags. I'm a newb, so I don't know where the airbag sensors are located so I don't know if a JDM beam would affect this, i've heard its located in the fenders, in which case a JDM bumper beam wouldn't affect the deployment of the airbags, am i right? Also, I have my car lowered and am getting the V-Limited lip most likely, so there is the possibility of having the bumper bottom out. Would this cause the lip to bend just from bottoming out?? Thanks,

~Matt
