comment Change of transmission oil
It would help if you specified more information about the particular make and model of car about which you are asking.

comment Speedometer dial ranges
I believe it if you're pushing 400+ bhp. I can't imagine driving that fast with the stock aero, though. I've felt the back end of my little wagon getting scarily light at fast but not that fast speeds.

comment Subaru Forester XT has a hissing sound under acceleration and lacks power
Is this a CVT car? We drove a Forester with a CVT recently and ran away. It sounded exactly like a slipping clutch. You'd be able to tell by looking at the tachometer - if the engine revs are staying mostly the same as you accelerate, it has a CVT.

comment Is it worth having a fire extinguisher in the car?
For context, it would help if you would share the specific vehicle and situation that you're thinking of. For example, I don't bother with an extinguisher driving my car around town. If I were driving a Miura way out in the countryside, I'd definitely have one due to the high risk of it suddenly bursting into flames far from any assistance.

Good point about the unsecured fire extinguisher. However, it's worth making the point that you can properly secure the extinguisher and have it in the vehicle without additional risk.
