I've got this in my brand new B4S.



and close up


It looks like either a bit is missing, or they forgot to put something under the carpet, so just cut a hole to get it in! Surely this can't be normal?

Should there not be an air vent there?
Check under the other seat to see?

Well, the first aid kit is in the boot, which is where I would have expected it.

Fire Extinguisher Shocked Are you serious?! I've never heard of a car coming with a fire extinguisher. (Maybe a Tesla does, I haven't checked..)

UPDATE @Rav: You're right. To my amazement, there *is* supposed to be a fire extinguisher. But there isn't. Is this something that might have been deleted due to having fancy electric leather seats?

UPDATE @Ali: I had another look under the passenger seat, and there is some ducting there, but it is properly plumbed into the carpet, which is why I missed it the first time. I went back to the driver's side, and the ducting was suspiciously similar. What I had taken for ducting going rearwards was actually ducting that should have been pulled through the carpet aperture. After a bit of scraped knuckles, I managed to get the ducting pulled through, and now it all looks proper tidy.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Some BMW cars came with an extinguisher as standard or as an option. 635CSi's, M635Csi's, M1's, M5's, generally valuable stuff.

Cars as far back as E34's (1988-ish) had under front seat air ducting for the rear seats.

Sytner have confirmed there isn't supposed to be a fire extinguisher present.

My B3 3.3 has a fire extinguisher under the seat.
Not sure how useful it is after 18 years under there.

@Rav: The manual says get it checked every 2 years. At 18 years I think you would be better off throwing it away and saving the weight!

"Holy Carpets Batman..."

In all seriousness, it looks a bit gash. have they specced and fit the wrong carpet?
