    if u put a piece of paper or sumthing on the tail pipe then it gets sucked in a little and blown out very quickly then qhat is that called zulfiqar bhai?

    put it in 3rd gear before entering in the water and just drive it on a constant speed with which you hit the water at first.

    wear a rubber costume before putting the car in 3 feet of water
    (Cause water will definetly seep inside the car)

    and if the air intake sucks in water. say goodbye to the car and swim to your destination

    I have heard BMWs and Mercedes are more prone to danger in lots of water. A guy I know drove his dad's E class 2009 through water and the engine seized. An uncle told me this was common for Mercs and Beamers.

    To all those who are making fun out of the situation, there are cases when u cannot park your car & walk away... Like when I was coming on my Margalla from Gilgit to Islamabad in 2007 I guess & in the midway near Bisham, the water level was almost between 2-3 ft at some places.... In such situation, I prefer to drive in 1st & 2nd gear at constant speed with high rpm. Wherever the engine does knocking or turned off, your time is gone...Will anybody dare to park his car on the roadside & walk away under such circumstances???

    follow the car in-front, the bow-wave is reduced to half, but follow a knuckle head cause if he pissed in half way, you are gone with him
    use hand brake for stopping / controlling cause a backfire can cause the exhaust to suck in some water that's why its said to keep the revs a bit high, dont park your car in Pakistan and walk cause you wont be getting it back afterwards, its better to drive a stinky car than not having a car at all, I have myself tried these combinations many times and usually i Unplug the automatic fan electric connector before making a stunt, turn the AC off cause the fan can throw water on the wires and car can break just cause of that. You can also try removing the inlet pipe cause its usually high than the routed intake and go for it.
    This is my experience of years of journeys in Central punjab and surroundings, but i never try this in moving water.
