We have one. It's not the easiest seat to fit, although we have it in a car where it only just fits (a Seat Leon). If your car has more rear seat space you'll find it easier and, of course, it would get easier with practise.

My tip would be to get a set of straps for each car, rather than having to remove them each time as they're a bit fiddly to attach to the car.

if you have isofix in each car, this would be the easiest option. Britax Max-Fix in that case

The Max Fix is new and much easier to fit than the Maxway. It would be a better choice for you but it looks like it will need more space so definitely try it in your car before you buy.

Being an isofix seat it only ges up to 18kg while the Maxway goes to 25kg. That may, or may not, be a problem for you depending how big your LO is.

I found getting it in the right position in the car and fitting the seat belt a bit fiddly. The tether fixings are also a bit fiddly (the TWE has seat belt type fixings but the MaxWay has metal spring clips). But, as I said, there is only just enough space in our car so positioning is critical. If you have more space in the back you should find it easier.

What car do you have? Are you tall or short. Rf seats have different space requirements. Some need only little room while others need a lot. Tthen there are some that need a lot in some cars and very little in others.

I recently had a pair of tall parents with a VW Up. for a visit. They had a Besafe Izi Kid X3 isofix seat behind the passenger seat. Front seat had to be moved right forwards. A different seat such as the Cybex Sirona. Britax Max-Fix or the Klippan Triofix would have done a better job here with regards to space, which must be considered no matter what type of seat you buy.

They decided to keep the Besafe. But now they know what to go for with the next baby.
