I was close enough :) I did read one guy said he got through water just below his head light's with no problem but wouldn't want to risk trying anymore. I remember I tried once in a Ford Cortina Estate was about a foot deep it didn't end well :( wet feet and a stuck car :)

The engine air intake is just behind the bonnet / grill gap, and the alternator is on top of the engine so assuming your spark leads are properly sealed from the water the car should be able to go in headlight deep!

 

I'll let you know come winter how it went...

Apparently you also have to be careful of the rear diff - the breather is low, and you may ahve to check/change the oil in it if you drown it. It is possible to extend it a bit higher.
