C63 fire extinguisher

Hi all,

I want to take the C63 to some track days & I need to fit a fire extinguisher within reach of the driver.

I've rung 3 a dealer & they said part # A0008603314 might fit but he wasn't sure of the mounting. I don't want to drill any holes has anyone fitted one using this part that can provide some guidance?

Cheers for your help.

I think this is the part you're talking about:

I looked into this as well, but that OE fire extinguisher is too small and unlikely to pass tech inspection if required IMO.

I got an H3R 2.5lb halotron extinguisher with universal seat mount and a billet quick release bracket. Cost me $300 all-in. Fits great, and I know it will do the job if needed.

I've always been curious about HALON vs ABC for a car. If you google it theres 100 people saying HALON is best and there is another 100 saying ABC is the only way to go.

I had a Kidde A B C in my Alfa Romeo, years ago.

Driving to work, noticed that I trailed a plume of smoke, pulled over, grabbed extinguisher, opened trunk to 1 ft flames (electrical fire), emptied extinguisher at it, for a second it seemed I succeeded, but the flames came back out.
In retrospect, an extinguisher of triple size would probably have succeeded, although with electrical fires, I would have had to think to disconnect the battery (in the trunk), in the middle of all of this. I guess that this is why in racing they have battery isolation switches.

A friend that at the time had a Maserati, had a similar feedback, similar extinguisher, his fire was under the hood.

I have to wonder what a Halon unit would do.

Timely thread. I've been looking to replace the 2.5# Kiddes that are currently in the trunks of the cars with this. The best price Ive seen on it by $20 or so:
