    Thanks for reply,
    Does 2006 SL 55 come with a red battery + terminal rear boot battery cap? mine has not but instead has a large black cap over the whole of the rear battery, should it also have the red cap that has sticker on it that says 'supply battery'?

    As yours is a late 230 it will have the black cover.

    Don't worry!

    Extinguisher is better mounted under the passenger seat - in case it comes out of its holder and rolls under the pedals !

    That's where I always put mine ; still readily accessible .
