Also, some car manufacturers sell foam spacers/foam fillers to put in the storage compartments so you can use a seat with a leg.
Ford UK Customer services (NOT a local dealership) sell them and they are mentioned in the manuals for the cars, see it referenced here www.fordmanuals.org/page-3055.html. Someone on here, moonstorm I think, bought one for her Ford S-Max with a Besafe Izi RF seat, you could probably search for the thread and find it.
the scenis didn't have floor fillers when i had mine. it wasn't a problem for us though. i had a KISS and it had a support leg and we test drove a vw touran and the support leg didn't reach the bottom of the underfloor storage. i have a hi-way 2 now and it has a longer support leg so maybe that would stretch to the bottom of it.
yes that's where i got mine. it has a preset recline like the twe. i have had the twe now for nearly 3 years, had a kiss for just over a year and have just got two hi-way 2's. i have just preset it to the most reclined with added wedge for ds2 7 months and most reclined without wedge for ds1. i find this fine and their heads don't roll forward when they sleep.
The conversation has moved on a little, but yes we checked with Ford (You can buy the foam spacers). We even contacted Ford.no (Norway) who had tested the Besafe izi isofix in the S-Max who said it was fine to use the seat with the foam spacers.
Note also Britax are starting to test and ok seats with support legs on storage boxes with fillers...
