Thanks for all of the advice, I'm currently looking for birth upwards, the Maxi-Cosi Cabrio looks pretty good. It will fit onto a stroller base too, not sure if the bed goes flat though?
Where did you use in Keighley Rick (pm if you're not allowed to say on the forum, cheers), I'm due a service soon so I'll have to come and drop off my other baby at CW Lear.
Any clue on the buggy/pram/strollers that will fir comfortably in the boot?
Hi PArtyboy and congrat for your sonn-to-be-born baby
I have now 4 kids under the age of 7 and up to a point the 156 coped well (or just !) with 3 although space was at premium.
You're right the MaxiCosi cabrio is the best buy for newborn and will fit almost in any car. Don't spend your money on isofix carseat, even our family car (a late 2000 VW sharan) doesn't have the isofix hooks and it is still an chargeable extra on many new car.
We had the prior version of the cabrio and buying the "wheels" that goes with it is soooooo much easier that handcarry it. It might be light with a newborn baby but the cabrio accommodate a baby upto 9month or 9kg.
The wheels/pram/buggy to avoid with a 156 saloon are the "umbrella" folding buggy because the boot of the 156 is not that wide.
Finally the guys from toysrus/babiesrus are quite helpfull and knowledgeable. Once you know what you want to buy it also pay to browse for e-retailers to get the best deal ....
Happy hunting !
