I'm not aware of any aftermarket seats with an airbag. I think your only option is the FRPP ones. Since this is where you are putting your butt every time you are in the car & is a main safety item, I wouldn't skimp here. If it takes a while to save up for the better part, so be it. Just my $0.02.

Nothing under 1K will have air bags.

You can disable the airbag stuff for the seat but there is no way any seat company is manufacturing a seat with an airbag in it. That would be logistical hell.

There are ways to disable the side only but you had better consult your insurance company before you do anything else. They could easily declare your insurance invalid in a crash if you have disabled a safety system. Always check with your insurance company before modifying anything safety related.

I will also get a roll cage and a 5 point seat belt with the frpp rear seat delete, wouldnt all that make it safer than stock with airbags.
I will give them a call and hope for the best.

I wouldn't bet on anything. Imo, it would be safer. But the laws rarely bend to common sense. They will bend for money though. They may simply up charge you for the aftermarket seats.

Having a roll cage and 5 point harness for street driving doesn't make your car safer for the street only for the track. In an accident your risking hitting your head against your roll cage, and a 5 point harness will limit movement and visibility while changing lanes and reversing. I only use my harness when at the track (road racing). If you are looking for a 5piont for racing try and look for harness that has anti submarining features such as the ones Scrotch has.

Good luck!

I don't claim to be a scientist, and not to be completely morbid, but a 5 point harness with no hans device type setup would probably make your neck more prone to snapping in the case of an accident on the street where at least there is a little give with a regular seat belt. The difference probably isn't much but still.
