David,

Sorry I missed your post here, haven't been keeping up to date.

Jack is just short of 7 months now. I made the decision to hold off putting him in the car until a couple of weeks ago as I didn't want the expense of having airbags deactivated + buying a rear facing seat when he would soon fit in the front facer on the rear seats. The cost of the Porsche Seat and De-activation is roughly 900 and your wife will be sitting in the back.

As to the rear facing seat on PCGB forum that you mentioned on another thread, I'm not sure I have heard of anyone else using a rear facer in the rear. Even the rear facer that I have in the BMW takes up a lot of space and the front seat has to be quite far forward to accomodate. I have just looked at the pics on the PCGB forum and to be honest (and it may be the camera angle) that seat with the baby in doesn't look like it's in properly. Apologies if that causes offence to anyone but from the pics alone it just doesn't look like a rear facing should.

Hello,

Bizarre that my first post to this site should be hooked by a thread on kids seats! Bought my first Porsche last week, C4S and have been looking at this forum for a bit to see where to jump in. My partner drives an X5 4.4 which we use for kids and dogs and I have the luxury of driving 'my own car' through out the week. Previous cars are 6 series converts, M3's and big mercs so this is a first porsche for me to either get it out of my system or become a convert. Anyway to the point...we took out my car at the weekend and Jamie my three year old sat on a child seat behind the passenger (perfect fit) and I had my daughter in a rear facer behind me. Good fit but the drivers seats needs to be well forward and for a 6 footer like me this is not perfect. On the homeward journy we switched the seats and my Mrs moved her seat forward. She moaned like hell but I was comfortable and it was amazing how the wheels on the bus from the bose drowned her out.

Moral being then, take the kids leave Mrs at home.

Ian,

Welcome to the forum.

What brand was the rear facing seat you used if you don't mind me asking?

Hi David, its called a Jane from Mothercare. Joking aside though it is really easy to fit in the seat. The previous model took bloomin ages to get in the car and if it was raining you got bloody soaked trying to wrap the seatbelt around it!

Should say, I did a deal with the OPC and got two Porsche kids seats, the stage 2/3 and these are about the best I've seen, comparable to the Recaro which I have in another car. They're too expensive to justify almost after the purchase but in handing over a massive amount for the car I fooled myself I was clever at negotiating by having them include the two seats Smile
They fit well un the back.

I also had the disabling of the front air bag fitted as well so I can in theory take three kids in the car.

blimey! Hi mate good to hear from you! The parallels are too close too call! I was watching the same mind bending rubbish wih my kids - feeding one and eyeing the forum at the same time So you jumped from M3s as well? I had brief stint in a 645 convertable and then finally bought a Porshe after 10 years of debating it with myself. So whats your first iumpressions of it?

Ian, small world eh? I loved working at MTI, pity KC left me no path to progress or I'd be there now.

I had a 911 and a 968 in the past then in recent years had a couple of M3s which were great and practical as well. Trouble was too practical so mountain bikes ended up in the back when the children and wife were using the family Disco.

I ended up buying another LandRover, a Defender for rough weekend stuff which meant I could indulge more than the M3 for practicality so a C4S was top of my list straight away.

Only picked it up a couple of weeks ago and it's a leap up from previous Porsches and the M3. My kids seem to like it and despite not telling the wife until after I'd picked it up, she seems to think it's a great car as well. She's already said she wants me to get the turbo next time so that's worked out better than my M3 purchase which she hated. I've got the usual new car obsessions so had PaintShield applied, had the iPod box sorted and so on.

Given I track my Caterham and enjoy a spirited drive, I'd say it's about as good a drivers' car as you can get for the UK roads although I do miss SMG shifting a bit.

Hack the PSE so it's on full time - my neighbour glares in a way that I know means it's working as desired.

Hmm underdstand your point about KC and the home guard...

Good point on the SMG Really miss that part of the M3 - For me it really worked well - Really snapped the gears home hard. Felt similar to bike gear changes which in a car is hard to replicate. Talking of bikes and loud pipes - Reckon your neighbours should meet mine! Two dukes, a Kwack and R1 at the last count....

What colour is this new C4S then?

I have GT Silver, it's an option and not really so different to the silver but is more grey looking, same as silver grey on the M3 (my last colour in fact for that car as well). I also like the seal grey but this is an easier colour to keep smart looking.

I have the Aerokit, sideskirts and turbo wheels so the exterior is quite different to a standard car. My wife doesn't like the standard shape so I knew the exrta styling would work for her.

Sounds like you have as many bikes as I have mountain bikes. I now have four cars though so I need to stop being so fickle. I've promised myself I will keep this car at least a couple of years but my record is less than two years for my last 6 cars. I'm actually thinking right now that the C4S is almost perfect but a next generation will be hard to resist if they up the power and tweak the styling nicely. It's a high class problem though - it's great to be in a position to own and enjoy the car.

I reckon your home guard will be there to turn the lights off, RB must be bored of working soon surely !

My posts in the official baby seat thread are now FAQ, which means great if you know where you are looking but no one views them posts to comment; just find info which is great...

Quote:
Went into OPC today to test the seat, Junior Plus.
It has a sticker on saying "Britax Romer Kid Plus" !!

The regular seat was £171; and with isofix was £228.
Fitting was not perfect, but probably better than the previous version, Junior Seat. So best fitting so far of any seat!!

I'm wandering if you can just buy the Porsche fabric cover for these seats, and just get the regular Britax and swap over!?


So can you get the Porsche seat cover easily and cheaply, and put over the Britax seat??
