S280 '97 P reg
Hi, we own a '97 P plate S280 which has a pass SRS/Airbag. Our problem is we will soon need to carry a rear facing child seat for a third child and we would have preferred to put this in the front.

From earlier brochures I own it appears that from launch until some date this was optional, does anyone know what age of car this could be found in.

Alternatively, I've been advised that some MB have a dashboard light which comes on to show the MB child seat has deactivated the SRS. Again, does anyone know whether the W140 range in the last few years (ie 97-99) had this.

Otherwise my wife will be driving around in the B@W 7 series we own, rather than the MB! ! !

Thanks for your help
