Do any of you gearheads know how the leather seat mounted side airbags are supposed to deploy during an accident- does it tear through the leather or does it bust a seam?

Also, does the Ody side airgbags only protect the ribcage area? I have seen side airbags that deploy big enough to protect the side of your head as well as your ribcage area. I have been looking for pics of deployed Ody side airbags with no luck (maybe because we Ody owners are so careful of our new vans!)

The airbag does deploy through the seatback instead of the door. The seam is designed to split upon deployment.

The head protection you refer to to is associated with a separate airbag that deploys from the A-pillar, but not on your Ody. BMW designed this system and is the only manufacturer I am aware of that currently installs it in their vehicles.
