    Default 60/40 euro rear seats?

    How many of you guys have a kiddie seat in the back of your vec? Well I do and there's one thing that keeps annoying me and its that the 60/40 rear seat split is on the wrong side for us right hand drivers. Its fair to say we all put our kiddie seats on the passenger side, just because its the curb side, its away from oncoming traffic and also you can see the nipper without stopping and looking behind your seat. I also use my boot to the full every day and have put the seats down to carry everything. Now with the currant split I have to take out the car seat every time but if the split was on the other side the toddler seat could sit on the left hand side still and I would have enough room with the 60 split.
    So to my original reason for posting, Do left hand drive cars have the 60/40 the other way round? I wouldn't expect them to but you never know.

    I know where your coming from mate but TBH if I ever have to carry anything large I end up with the full width down anyway. Then again, we often had the seat behind the driver so my wife in the front passenager seat could turn around and see my son easily.

    Now with two kids the back has two kiddie seats so it's even more fun LMAO

    True true, but you can only get 4 people in them confortably - what's the point in that with a car that size ? I can get 5 adults in the vec and go for a 100 mile drive without the guy in middle winging about space LMAO

    'cos I never carry five people - so the four I rarely carry travel in real comfort!

    I lie, I've carried five people once, for a distance of a few miles.

    Well said Duncan.
    Real luxury is what it is. Mine only ever has the daughter strapped into her seat in the back she's got loads of room. LOL

    I know baby seats aren't recommended, not sure about a booster though.

    Default Booster Seat, Signum

    Thanks Duncan, cant see a problem myself, whats the difference between a big fat bum (says he so slim! ) and a booster seat?
    It will only be the odd time that i may have to use it.

    Anyone else with a Signum used one?

    I dont want to be put off the swop to a Signum, mainly me or 2-3 people in car most of the time.
