I need a specific one that complies with the CR handbook. Is OG Racing the only place to purchase it from? Anywhere else closer to alexandria, VA?

Can these be shipped even though it is under pressure.

TIA

What type/class extinguishers do you need?

don't know, I'll let you know this weekend.

Any idea where to buy a kill switch for the car?

You probably just need a BC - fairly cheap and easily available. The bigger issue will be mounting brackets.

No idea on the kill switch.

Strap a shotgun under the dash pointing at the DME?

Yes, they can be shipped but it will probably be UPS ground (no air shipments).

don't just get a hand bottle for cr, get a real fire system. www.bimmerworld.com has spa systems for around $300. very easy to install.

No, we just want to make sure you are safe. If you got hurt, who would we make fun of for constantly buying cars? :p

Spending money may save you hours of cleanup when you have to use the fire bottle. Has been a while but the typical BC extinguiser(sic) can be very corrosive especially to a car with modern day electronics. Would suggest whatever the current substitute is for good old ozone depleting halon. Also depending on where the fire is a cheaper fire system can have nasty effect on the internals of an engine. Not sure if any of this info is current. Its what I remember from years ago as a crew chief for SR and GT3 cars. Rebuilding an engine because of the corrosive effects of the extnguisher not the fire is no fun. Now I just look at pedigrees and try to decide which breeder for a new collie pup. Is the alpha of the litter the best choice for herding? Life was less complicated when I was crewing and racing.
