After getting talked into it by toys R us I just bought the Casualplay bicare fix car seat.

I'm not happy with it. It seems cheap and not secure at all, not to mention I can slide one of the metal bars that locks onto the base out with my fingers!

Even without that, it sits very high and the shape of my rear doors means there is very little space to fit my wee man in.

Other than the Britax dualfix and cybex sirona, are there any other isofix, rear and front facing seats that swivel to get the baby in and out easier?

Thanks in advance.

I have the Cybex Sirona (well 4 of them) and I love them, the best investments I ever bought.

Maxi-cosi have one but it's only forward-facing.

Thanks. Wow. 4 of them! Your car seats combined cost more than some peoples cars. Lol

It looks like it's going to be cybex sirona.

There's a britax one but it's not compatible with my car.

Have the dualfix and love it as well. Really easy to use and secure. Well worth the money.

Give in car safety in Milyon Keynes a ring. Great for advice.

Yeah, 6 DC all in car seats do that! I also have the Joie Steadi, and a Cybex Pallas Fix grin

I agree give car safety a ring, they'll know more.

The [http://kidsafetyfirst.com/britax-max-fix-ii-review Britax Max-Fix II] is another ERF i-size compliant seat. It's very similar to the Dualfix, but doesn't have the swivel feature. If you can do without the swivel, It is about £65 cheaper than the Dualfix.

Sorry about the messed up link - forgot a couple of square brackets and can't find anyway to edit the post

Another one with the dualfix and happy so far. Just wish it could also fit with a seatbelt as I am now looking for everything in your question with the ability to belt fix. Will have to give up on my lively swivelling base for our spare seat!
