    hi

    is there a website that shows the range of MB baby seats? i need to buy one or am i best just going into a dealer?

    i need one with the airbag transponder thing - can you get ones made by other companies or do they have to come from MB?

    They are in the MB accessories catalog, which is online at MB as well as on a stand at the dealers.

    By the way - the seat doesn't need to be MB -, so if you fancy a Honda one (approx half the cost as I recall) it will still be detected and disable the airbag.

    Of course you would be foolish to take my word for it, given what may be at stake, because my experience is limited to a particular seat in a particular car, so the best thing is to pop into wherever sells the one you fancy be it Ford, Honda etc, then take it outside and make sure it disables the airbag.

    there is a new range of seats just come out

    I am about to get a car seat (and a newborn) in the next month. I got the new brochure from the stealer and they now have 2 different seats to chose from. A lot less gaudy(sp) than the original one. The down side is the one for a new born (which does last until they are around 5 years) costs £450....yes that is four hundred and fifty pounds :eek: :eek: :eek:

    But if it lasts five years and could save your child from serious injury or worse should the worst thing happen - it's worth it - and less than £2 per week :rolleyes:

    Congrat's on your almost new born - enjoy :D

    yeah its new born i need (due november).

    if it lasts 4 or 5 years than thats good but they can just go in the back after so many months which is a better option imo

    I found that the other manufacturers seats come out better in the safety tests and only cost £100-£150. If you need one with transponders because you want to put the seat in the front, think it over. The child will be much safer in the front and a lot of countrys now have laws stating that children under 5yrs old must be in the rear seats and not the front.

    I have the Mercedes Transponder seat (the one that goes up to age 5).

    Yes, it was very expensive and ironically it has only been used in the front maybe once or twice. It spends its life behind the driver seat so mummy can reach over to it easily.

    Saying that though even mounted in the back it sits a lot more snugly than most other aftermarket seats that I've tried e.g. Bebe Comfort (my choice if I didn't need transponders).
