Lets just think were looking at the pinacle of the alfa range and i cant find a way to let my 1 year old sit safly in the back(Boolocks)! HELP
Same problem with the 164. It took me a while to find something that would be narrow enough to fit. Most seats are designed for big fat bench type seats but our Alfa's are more figure hugging and that's where you get problems. I gave up in the ned and padded out the seat with towels and some foam. Worked OK and the seat didn't slip around. I've finally swapped out both kids seats for a set with the latest EC certification and these have a nice narrow base that fits snugly. FINALLY I feel comfortable that the kids are as safe as possible. You have to look around!
