Hello, I am seriously considering the above seat for my baby if it fits in our car when we go to buy it. I was just wondering how easy it is to move between cars? Obviously it's fairly big and bulky and would spend most of the time in our car, but I don't drive so if I need to go somewhere while my partner is at work I would need to be able to easily fit it in another car.

If it would be easier to buy a second seat (possibly Joie Stages or Hauck a Varioguard but would have to look into this) I would consider this but won't be able to afford it right away.

Both your cars would need isofix. The seat is bulky but idofix seats are generally very quick and easy to move into a different car.

We've got one. It's the first isofix seat I've ever owned so I've nothing to compare it to but dh said it's harder to fit than our First Class. He struggled to get it all lined up properly, but that could me more due to the car than the seat.

You can get plastic isofix guides sometimes if your anchor points are quite deep behind the cushions. We got some with our seat and they are in DHs car. Don't need them in mine as it is easy to get the seat lined up to the points but it does make it much easier in the other car.

We've got those, the seat came with them, they were no help apparently!

Ah, I know in my mum's car at least the Isofix points are quite deep where in our car they stick out. Hopefully it will prove quite easy to fit. It may be worth looking at a second seat where we can use Isofix or seat belts for other cars just for the flexibility.
