Smile Air Bag Replacement

After a year of denials about Faulty Airbags in our 2010 C Class 204 . Mercedes replaced both Front Airbags last month. A welcome move, as I understand that Airbags have a reliable life of 10 years. Then they should be replaced.

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ !
The saving grace seems to be that in our 203 C Class anyway, the other Airbags ( Curtain and Knee ) are or for the life of the Car... How long is a piece of string ?

I wonder if they are still available for early models such as the W126? Neither of mine have airbags, but am curious of the cost.

As they contain explosives, I imagine it is an item that must be purchased locally.

No cost under warranty. I recall, years ago, that Airbags were available from mercedes as a retrofit
