What's my best bet if I want a small (2lb extinguishing agent minimum) fire extinguisher mounted under the drivers seat for drift events? Since the oem parts are exceedingly hard to get.

Quick google search shows KAP industries in Australia and VAC motorsports sell brackets for the e90. Anyone have experience with either?

Most good extinguishers come with solid brackets. Just pick a place to drill. But I'd suggest a properly sized one and pick the right type. This is what I have in my RX-8. I bought a large one because the little ones don't last for shit so they are useless in a significant fire.

Unfortunately I got nowhere to put a big extinguisher lol still have the full interior. It's my daily I don't want to gut it (yet)

I ended up ordering the VAC mount and an Amerex Purple K 2.5lb extinguisher. Will see how it fits
