...there are loads in International Stock in Kings Heath at massive reductions.

Off the top of my head, they have (all ex display or new without packaging);
Kiddy Infinty Pro £66
Kiddy Comfort Pro £89
Kiddy Guardian Pro £96
Britax Multi Tech £110
Recaro Polaric £104
Britax Secura Hi-Way £56 (tethers missing)
Plus lots of discounted HBBs and forward facing seats but I took no notice of them.

Thanks for posting this, I went today and got two new Rocaro Polaris seats, saving myself nearly £200 I reckon! Wish I'd taken your list as the Rocaro was the only one I could identify as rear facing (embarrassing lack of research emoticon).

Grin You're welcome. The only ones I recognised the first time I went there recently were the Polarics too. They keep getting new ones in and I keep looking at them despite not driving and having two seats already. Blush

i'm not but i wish i was!

i don't even need another seat but i do hate missing a bargain! lol

thisisyesterday, I'm exactly the same. Grin My sister bought a Kiddy Guardian Pro last week because they're so cheap. I was trying to think up a reason to need a third seat, but I couldn't!

you see i need an extra seat for my parents car... but sadly i am nowhere near birmingham and i suspect the diesel to get there and back would cancel out my saving lol

would love a multitech though, or the secura hi-way (i already have spare tethers)
or the guardian pro.... do you know whether the base on them is narrow? i need a seat to fit in the middle of a renault scenic?

The Guardian's base looks narrow to me. I could measure it tomorrow for you if you like. I'd offer to buy a MultiTech or Hi-Way and post it to you but I don't know how I'd package it as they don't come with the box. If you're serous about wanting one, I could look into finding something to put a seat in. Just let me know.

aww thanks that's really kind. if you could measure that would be great.

am trying to think who i could go and visit and take in b'ham as well lol

I've just measured the Kiddy Guardian Pro at 43.5cm at its widest point, so is smaller than the Maxi Cosi Cabriofix at 45cm.
