    My little boy is 3 years old now and I still have the S3, I find having a 3 door is better for getting a kid in and out as you can put the front seat forward and actually stand in there, rather than a 4/5 door, as you have to do everything from the side instead.

    Get a seat cover, towel or something along those lines, then put the seat down on that, luckily I have the alcantara in mine and the seat marks just wipe off
