My vehicle was registered 1st time in Nov 2006 and at that time I was instructed by Dubai Police to install a fire extinguisher.

Yes, installed in the dumbest of places. It is law in Sharjah, but not in Dubai. And all new cars seem to have one.

Check next to the spare tire - it might have a clip around it which is a right princess to undo in a panic situation.

Some 80's German cars came with fire extinguisher already equipped (Audi's, VW's, Porsche's etc).

Our 06 BMW did NOT have one, i purchased one.

Always make sure that they are inspected, the day you wish to use it (hope that day never comes), it may not work.
