I have two boys - 5 and 3 - and use the Porsche Prince seats which are slightly weird multi-part seats but seem secure enough and the boys like them.

A good thing about them is that as the child grows you steadily discard parts of the seat - my 5 year old only needs the booster base now.

Hi Fuchs

I was sent to this thread very helpfully by 993C2S in response to a question about child seats in a 993 and delighted to see you have cracked it. I have googled the Maxi Cosi Rodi and found 3 different models. Was it the XP, XR or SPS that fitted? Any other tips? It's for a 3 year old so the belt rubbing the neck shouldn't be a problem.

Many thanks.


Hi tredegar

I cant tell exactly which model it was as i cant remeber, but i do know that its no longer for sale new anymore.

I got mine via the swiss version of ebay.

But have a look at Carnewal as he sells the porsche version that fits in the rear of a 993.

Very Happy

Hi

I was wondering if anyone had had a child seat fitted professionally by the likes of Mothercare or Halfords, in the back of a 993? My son is in the 13KG's range as he is only 19 months old.

The reason I mention it is because both the Recaro Young expert ( a seat reported to fit perfectly in there) doesnt get even close, and the Concord Ultimax (which I found from seaching the forums here) will go in, (in the sense that the base fits the rear buckets), but gets disqualified as the seat belt mounting is way too high, meaning the chair wont fit to the base, and if forced, the fixing would shatter in a collission, making the seat come loose.

Ive searched the forums and read the threads, which is how I came by the Ultimax as I saw the photos of an apparently successful fitting. but, as I say - Mothercare said this was unsafe. Jus twondering how to proceed really.

cheers
Ol

Ol, this is one of those subjects that divides people. I agree with your comments about the Recaro and Concord.

In my opinion there are only 2 options - both are for seats that are no longer available new.

The first is the Porsche Prince. I'm not so keen on the Prince, as the restraint mech is a foam "table" that holds the child in, with the seat belt running over this table.

The other option is the Mamas and Papas Sicuro. This is the seat recommended by the company - Kwik Fit safety belt systems in Stanmore.

It certainly fits in the best in the very restricted space in the back of a 993.

Thanks Asim - it was actually the chaps in Stanmore who recommended the recaro seat so Im a bit Confused ...

Im not really happy about using a second hand seat, so does that mean there are no options?

I was wondering if the likes of Mothercare and Halfords might be working to different fitting guidelines than other fitters!

cheers

My conclusions were you either go secondhand and one that fits properly, or new and not fitting properly Confused

Unfortnately.

I'm toying with the idea of getting a seat cushion made. If it is 10 - 12 cm thick, it will sit on top of the current seat cushion , and then the normal 3 point seat belt will be OK as the shoulder part will be in a better position.

What the heck!

I bought a britax trio for my 996 , but it didn't fit when I tried it in the rear of my 993 ... Am I missing a trick , did you remove the seat backs or anything?

Question

The trick you missed, was the seat belt you buy a extension to fit onto the seat belt .It's very safe it is used for bigger people Very Happy The seat belt is then longer to fit the trio with.
Please note, with the baby in the car I pull the seat forward a bit.

But the bloody thing wouldn't even fit into the seat!?

I'm away from the car for the next few days so can't try the seat again .. frustrating!

I resurrected this topic as I'm coming to the end of a long road on getting secure seating for my 10 month old . and I thought I'd share my info.

I've got a Britax Trio (easily available on Ebay) , though was unable to fit it in the back due to the seat belt being too short. After talking to SBS in stanmore and various seat suppliers I decided that a 'click on' extension wasn't the one for me , and it looked like I was going to have to go the €200 for a longer Porsche belt. One last phone call to SBS , and whatdaya know , they make extensions onto your belt to whatever length you want for about £25.

I had to send mine to them as I'm in Dublin , and the finished product is winging it's way back to me at the moment . It's certainly a cheaper alternate to buying a new porsche product , especially if it's just as good (which I'm told by the experts it is).I know it's not about the money when your child's safety is at stake but there no point in throwing money needlessly as Porsche either (and God knows I've done enough of that Very Happy) I'll update when I get the belt and re-fit it.

Ballcock, I bought a seat belt extender for £5 from here:

I've posted on various threads in the archives - did you not do a search?

I think I need to do a child seat FAQ frustrated

Yep , I did search and saw this , from what I could gather , these guys supply a piece of seat belt with 'male' and 'female' connectors on the end to connect to the existing rear belt .. From talking to a few of the baby seat suppliers (and SBS) , I wasn't happy going down this road.

Not sure what you mean mate Confused

The Securon belt extender bolts to hole where the existing belt anchors (rear quarter bottom corner). The original belt then attaches to the extender bracket with a fat bolt and nut. Very secure and very effective.
Maybe I should take a picture to show what I mean?

Ah righto , I get you .
Just a different way to skin a cat really.

The normal seat belt extension is just a male to female connection, and shops selling baby seats won't stock these anymore as they say these can come undone as they sit behind the seat.
