Default sport seats with airbags? do they exist?

I dislike my 02' WRX seats. The 04' seats are even worse. I am tempted to get some sparcos or something similar but after seeing the effectivness of the side airbags firsthand I decided I won't switch until I can have my cake and eat it too.

Do I have any options?

Nope. Recaro has something close but not really.

That was one of my very first questions when i joined the club long ago. There are no racing seats , or other aftermarket kinds, that have side air bags. At least none that i have found.

I think this would be a liability issue for the seat manufacturers, as well as a logistical one trying to make airbags that would be compatible with the systems in different cars. Not to mention the added cost of the final product.
You don't see aftermarket steering wheels with airbags either, presumably for the same reasons.
