The S4...er, S6 didn't get an airbag until 1995.  Like I said, I don't
follow this kind of stuff too much, but I just know many Canadian S4s have
made it over here without the sport wheel (airbag) conversion.
Traditionally, one throws-in a US gauge cluster and away you go.

They probably have airbags in them.  I think this problem only shows up 
during the transitional years 1989-1991(?)

I only know a little bit of which I speak...  ;-)
