    Most should fit, we have a silver cross rear facing car seat in our car. But i'd recommend checking with mothercare or halfords first as they have staff who have car seat training.

    yes i agree with silver cross ,

    we had a pram , where the car seat clicked on the pram wheels as well ,

    i think this is incase they fall asleep in the car , it makes it easy to transfer from car straight to the wheels without waking the child , or maybe so the baby can sit upright to view outwards .

    and it was good car seat too .

    The vectra boot was excellent too ,

    the pram top ( where the baby lies ) and the wheels fit side by side , with a bit of space left to put the baby paraphernalia .

    we used the BEBE Confort travel system,the base stays in the back seat secured by the seat belt,then you just un-clip the carry bit with the baby in & clip it onto the buggy

    this is the base

    this is the infant carrier that clips into it

    http://bebeconfort.com/products/car-...reatisfix.aspx

    had the same in wifes insignia

    bought the complete 'travel system' from here
    http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&sou...zy9YwURTbWf3Bg

    saved ourselves £170 compared to mothercare & halfords for the same kit,went into mothercare got the demonstration as to how it all works,what it was like to use,then searched online £370 delivered to my door

    hope this helps you out mate,pays to shop around as these things are quite expensive

    You probably have ISOFIX (my Vec does).

    We use a Maxi Cosi ISOFIX base and matching rear facing car seat.

    Nice quality and they have a 5 star NCAP rating (the only one that does btw).

    We used a Maxi-cosi ISOFIX base and rear facing seat in ours at first. Looking at some friends seats though, the bigger maxi-cosi seats still use a separate base, which means that the seat is higher, and it's harder to put little man in the back without banging his head.

    I looked at Vauxhall branded seats, and discovered that they are BRITAX seats with Vauxhall covers on, so saved myself a few quid and bought a BRITAX ISOFIX seat.

    We had the same system, worked really well, we also had the carry cot that is designed to be fitted across the back seats which was useful for long journeys.

    We've used/are using a Maxi Cosi with ISOFIX base up to 9 months, then Recaro Polaric rear facing 9 months up to 2.5 years...

    The Recaro Polaric is huge and restricts leg room for the front pasenger a bit, but kids survive better in rear facing seats up to 2.5 years old.
