Hm, when I was replacing my bumper, that's not where it was.... :?
Hmm must be a model-specific thing. Mine's low. Lower than the foglamps

No fords for you then!

I drove through a flood the other day, it didn't seem too bad but now I'm wondering if I got off lightly. Out with the tape measure again tomorrow...

Just take the air filter out, grab a long drill and stick a breather hole near the top of the air intake pipework before sticking the filter back... As long as the hole's not too big you'll hardly take any air in through it, but as soon as the intake gets blocked by water you'll get all your air from the breather. Of course you'll probably suffer a huge drop in performance as your engine struggles to breathe through it, but it's better than it drowning!
