Disabling installed airbags using a Durametric?

Toyota MR2: 09 фото Hi,
Has anyone disabled their airbags using a Durametric and had the unfortunate opportunity to test whether or not they were actually disabled and didn’t fire in a crash?
The reason I ask is that I purchased a Durametric Professional for the sole reason of turning off the passenger airbags, so that I could chauffeur my little one around. It seemed a better way to spend £500 than purchasing the disable switch (I have a 2005 987, so it doesn’t have the weight sensor).
I’ve plugged the Durametric in and coded all of the passenger airbags to ‘No’. Now, when I start the car, I get an airbag warning (this is fine and half expected – I should be able to clear it, but it’s useful information for now). Looking at the fault codes through the Durametric, it states that the airbags I have tried to disable have “incorrect coding” (fault codes 80F9, 8040, 8041, 8042).
After doing all of this, I thought that I’d better double check with Durametric that coding an airbag to ‘No’ would actually disable it, but they’ve come back and said that they don’t know what the behaviour of an installed airbag would be in a crash when it’s coded to ‘No’ (but confirmed that they send the same coding as Porsche's own tool).
Can anyone help me with

It's "Boxster." It's parked next to your Ferari and your Lambergini. You're quite the expert, eh??
Speed doesn't make it a Porsche. Who designed it and what it was originally intended for has a lot of say in what it is. Look up the history of the 914 or the 924. As to the Boxster that you fantasize about owning, it's a Porsche. However, the original poster was discussing an "old Porsche" that he bought to fix up. I doubt that he's discussing a Spyder or a 917, or even a 911 so I assume it's either a 356, a 912, or a 914. Anything to add, or would you prefer to keep making "Brmmm brmmm" noises while you pretend to drive your "Boxter"??
