I have a garage full of 2litre fire extinguishers of which I have one fitted in mine and Wayne has one in the garage somewhere Image
So if you haven’t got one and feel you need to put one in the car, let me know and I’ll bring some with me.

A Fire Extinguisher is a requirement at Spa-Franchamps and needs to be easily got at from the Drivers Seat, hence why mine is fitted to the Drivers Seat Bar :thumleft:

I would leave it where it is.
Just take a couple of tie wraps so you can tie it to the passenger seat rail if you have to.
It’s unlikely to be a problem though.
