    What is the best car seat for a S3 SB

    Hi,

    Looking for some advice.

    I was using maxi cosi with isofix base in my last car. The wee man is now 8months and ready for his next upgrade.

    What is the most suited or popular for the SB?

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers.

    Mine isn't a sportback but I ordered a recaro seat which then didn't fit. Sent this back and just bought the britax one that was advised in the handbook. Is a very good fit and is isofix but without a seperate base. Would recomend it.

    I have a SB and bought a Britax seat which was 0+1 size. Forward and rear facing and fits just fine.

    Ok well mines on way in august but I have got the latest maxicosi familyfix base that will work on isofix upto nearly 4 years old mate so thats the base sorted, then you can use the cabriofix & pebble upto 12 months & then the pearl for 12 - 42 months, apart from the savings in bases, they come with very good reviews.

    The familyfix has warnings to advise if the seat isnt in properly & if the base isnt not fixed to car properly iirc, cant wait to test it in august lol.

    Yes I'm the official tech whore, but hey also its the safety factor, isofix really is the best way.

    Links may help & hunt about as I got my familyfix from halfords for less than anywhere else.
