    Can factory fire extinguisher be retrofitted?

    It heard that it can't. I'm going kick myself for not ordering it. It's only a $140 option. The aftermarket solution is much more expensive and require removal of seat.

    Re: Can factory fire extinguisher be retrofitted?

    I had it on my options list first but then on Outlaw_Hawk's (one of our users) recommandations, I took it off.
    According to him, it can be a pain when driving bc in the way of the legs.
    On Ferrari, it is on passenger's footwell, much better IMHO.
    I think on 996 too.
    But they changed with the 997
    I can still add it though.
    Some track require fire extinguisher but it's quite seldom in my own experience.
    Can be a good self defense device too!

    Fanch,
    I sat at a new Boxster (987) at my dealer with the factory fire extinguisher. Yes, it' under the driver's seat but I didn't think it obstruct the leg room. I would add it back if you plan to attend driving schools.

    Re: Can factory fire extinguisher be retrofitted?

    Hey, guys, Just put something similar there on the floor where the extinguisher is supposed to be and check it out. I would imagine it makes the seat significantly less comfortable since you can't bring your heels all the way back anymore.

    Just carry one in the trunk, I'll bet it is almost as easy to grab? Just a thought.

    Re: Can factory fire extinguisher be retrofitted?

    I have the factory option fitted...
    It's out of the way and you don't even know it is there when seated.

    I would think that it would be listed in your dealer parts dept PET and could be ordered after the fact, but it may be more than $140

    I have it - not a hassle... BUT

    Make sure you don't catch your leg or pants on it... you may have SPRAY all over the cabin !!
