Hi adamw

I am busy hunting for a 993 but in the meantime we need to buy some extra child seats. It would seem sensible to buy something that will work with a 993 (when i finally get the right car) and wondered if you were still happy with your RODI SPS? Did you need to get any extenders?

Very many thanks

Peter


Hi Peter,
Very happy with the RODI SPS and it would seem that this is the child seat of choice for most 993'ers on here.
No Seat belt extenders needed.

Here you go...

Thanks for the update-were back in the uk for a holiday in cornwall shortly so i think well go ahead and order 2 for the hire car. At over £8/day to hire car seats this should off set about half of the purchase cost thumbsup

Thanks also for the link

Having been a Porsche Club GB member in the past I thought I would try this forum as well.
Great news for all family 993 owners, I must have spent months trying to find a booster seat for my 1997 targa. My son came home from the hospital in the 911 but then once out of the baby seat (extension required) I have struggled to find a seat that fits the rear. Porsche cannot disable the passenger airbag so nothing in the front I am afraid. All the forums spoke of obsolete models or American versions, but I am happy to confirm the Maxi Cosi Rodi Airprotect is a perfect fit. £99.95 and fitted by Halfords, happy days!

Welcome to the forum. You'll probably find it a lot more lively over here Thumb

You should have looked us up earlier Wink as we've discussed this a few times and the Maxi Cosi Rodi are indeed a great fit for the rear of the 993. I think some of the guys on here (myself included) have fitted them.

just noticed this thread, which was topical as about to post my own about baby seats

my wife is preggers with our first... great news and all, and wanted to find out a little more about using the 993. we have a mazda3 hatch for shops etc, so just for weekend drives really. a couple of questions..

- baby seats for 993 coupes - whats recommended, and are they easy to fit?
- have a c4 so thinking i won't even be able to get a buggy in the car in any rate, so very limited use - is this consistant with other members opinions?

Same situation here.

Have an audi for the shopping run and been checking out a few different models at Mothercare etc. Think we`ll end up going with a Maxi Cosi Elea buggy and get a Maxi Cosi car seat (haven`t decided on model yet). Not expecting the seat to fit the Porsche but the buggy should fit in the bonnet.

In terms of seats for the 993 I have seen a few guys fit a Concord Ultimax (£150 new via google) in a 993. They are a modern seat and look very good. They belt into the clip on the second seat so not ideal if you have 2 kids.

Only other option for a 993 that I`m aware of is M&P Sicuro or Klippan Futura (exactly the same seats). However these are an old models and therefore only available second hand. There was one on ebay a few weeks back for c£80 i think.

Have heard that a phil & Teds Sport buggy fits in the front of a 993 but i`m guessing thats will all wheels off. They look massive so am expecting the Maxi Cosi Elea to fit.

I`m still trying to understand the only baby car seat thing but i`m not expecting to be taking our little one in the Porsche untill they are at least c8 months + and can go forward facing. I think the whole backwards facing thing (newborn) is a lost cause for the Porsche.

I use a Kiddy Comfort Pro which I think is the modern evolution of the Porsche Prince. Here is a link to my post from when I first got it. My little girl is now coming up to 4 and still loves the seat. The seat got some admiring glances at the Yorkshire Porsche festival last Sunday. Best thing about it is that it is really light and easy to get in and out so its a doddle to shift to other cars when you want to.

PS. Gratuitous shots of my car at the Lotherton Hall event on Sunday.

What I have learnt is:

The only buggy that fits in a 993 boot is a Quinny Zapp.
Maxi Cosi Rodi or Prince fit rear seats.
No rear facing babyseat will fit rear seats.
Phil and Ted Sport will fit in the front seat, but you wouldn't want to.

If you have your seat back, your toddler will lose their leg space, but mine quite comfortably coped with his.

Maxi Cosi (plus Neatseat) and Quinny for me.

I tried a number of seats before I found the BubbleBum, which fits perfectly in the back of my 993. It's an inflatable seat for kids aged 4-11 which is designed for travel (deflates and fits in your bag or suitcase). UK link here: http://www.bubblebum.co/

I had been using the Prince but it's now too small for my 5 year old.

Do you need to modify the belt to fit the Maxi Cosi Rodi?

I've currently got a couple of kiddy seats in my C4S cab (can't remember what make but they are a vaguely similar style to the Maxi Cose) but they aren't a great fit.

I thought I legally need to have kiddy seats (sprogs are 6 & 4) but given how small the back seats are (without any kiddy seat) part of me thinks that the kids are actually a bit safer without the extra kiddy seat as they are lower down and a bit more protected.

Does anyone have a view on either just using a booster seat or just the normal car seats themselvees?

I have just brought a "Bubble Bum' real name! from halfords for my 6 year old daughter as the maxi cosi now puts her to high. It is inflatable seat for travel, but fits a treat in the back and only cheap.
