Default Fire Extinguisher retrofit to LWB's

Has anyone done this and or is it possible if not ordered on the original build.

Several companies make these. They mount directly to the front seat mounting bolts. Just spend 5 mins googling.

Having had it in my RS, it’s fairly annoying. Passengers mentioned it a lot.

Its super easy to remove the fire extinguisher itself. Just undo the strap and a few torx screws. Leave the mount in place.

Yes. The factory passenger seat does not have the bracket necessary for the attachment points. However, the seat is pre-drilled with holes necessary to stick some metric bolts and washers in lieu of the bracket - I would use two plates to spread the load in the CF.. The factory extinguisher can then be mounted.
