Hi all
Per the subject, does anyone here have a recommendation with regards to a front facing toddler seat I can put in the front of my 993? Just thought I'd check before I head to halfrauds and buy something

My car is a cabriolet so I have lapbelts in the rear which I don't feel like changing to 3 pointers (unless I can source USDM parts!)

How old is the toddler. I have a forward facing seat for the rear I bought from a forum member that my 3.5 year old is just.about to outgrow. You would need 3 point belts but it is a great fit.

I use a Maxi Cosi Rodi SPS but it does require 3 point belts. It fits well in the back of the 993 and would fit the front fine but you'll need to deactivate the passenger airbag somehow.
Age range is 3 1/2 upwards so uses the cars seatbelt for restraint.

Here it is... Concord Ultimax

http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=124391&highlight=concord

I'd be happy to sell it on for what I paid - £40 - for it plus P&P

Just depends what age/size the toddler is. This has been perfect for 2 to 3 1/2 and would work rear facing for babies too

Cheers

Nick

My daughter has just turned 3 and weighs 13.5kg I have a concord ultimax which would fit perfectly in the back if I had 3 point belts, but instead it's in my merc.

Challenge with the front is the shape of the comfort seats and sort of dip below the headrest section

I don't think that the passenger airbag needs deactivating if the seat is front facing?

I've just tried the Rodi in the front seat as I also have the standard comfort seats. I see what you mean about the headrest shape as it holds the back of the seat forwards. I would imagine all seats will have the same issue though. Dont know

Thanks for trying the rodi and sending the pic through, much appreciated...

I'll check the Porsche parts catalogues as there must be a way around this. I think 996 comfort seats are similar in size

Correct

My mistake

I'll see if I've a picture of the Rodi in the back or if not I'll take one later.
It does fit well although I could do with the extended rear belts now though.

Here you go.
I also find it best to buckle the seat belt into the opposite side. It seems to hold the seat firmer.

Excellent, do you know which particular Rodi model yours is? Seem to be a few variations

MaxiCosi Rodi Air Protect is also a perfect fit in the back.

Use it for my 4 year old.
