Are you living in the UK? I'm guessing you are referring to the flooding that is going on there. What is it like there?

Sorry I don't have any info to give you on the air intake.

How deep will the water be that you will be driving through?
I wish I could comment on this but in the mean time you might want to ask your dealer.

Eish, that's not much! Even the breather on the rear diff of the 4WD sits very low inside the empty spare wheel well.

I don't think its very much. These cars aren't really designed for this purpose

The increased ride height helps a little but but I don't think the engine has any changes done to waterproof it.

Yup, it's not the type of vehicle you want to put through deep water, anything deep enough to be an issue with the engine air system

Trouble is - even knowing the wading depth you never know exactly how deep the water is..
