    does anybody else a one of these?

    thought i would start a thread so we could share what fits the ruddy things...

    i managed to get a maxi cosi opal (combi seat) to fit both the front and back of mine at the weeked

    also the icandy peach- fits like a dream and plenty of room left, if the wheels are taken off! if their not taken off then it still fits well but only a few bags of shopping would fit

    icandy apple- fits well but not much room left

    mothercare spin- fits but has no room left and the ting weighs a ton

    quinny buzz3- fits with seat unit and wheels off, but takes up whole boot and has to go in a certain way for the boot to close

    mamas and papas luna told this fits but not tried it myself

    mothercare my4 it fits but both wheels need to come off and a lot of giggling, bots just about closes with a slam

    britax first class plus fits rear facing in the back but wobble side to side far too much, i wouldn't put a pint of milk in there never mind a new born, also bolt upright

    bugaboo cameleon fits in nicely have to take one wheel off but if i was allowed to put it in i'm sure i could get it all in...

    loola/loola up told this fits but not tried it myself

    Britax b-smart and it fits in the boot but with the wheels off and no space for shopping

    graco mirage needs parcel shelf off

    no problem, just be aware that the loola is heavy as hell and has a narrow seat unit, has some pretty bad reviews about it

    the spin also has bad reviews, wheels falling off, the child slumps down in the seat, brakes either sticking or failing

    buzz, bubs can't sit upright facing you, have to dismantal the whole things to get it in the boot, takes up the whole boot, and only goes in a certain way..

    these points may not be an issue for you but to me they were

    i love my wee car! i do home help, and believe me a bigger car would be a pain in the butt to park, at times i struggles to get my car into spaces, with an inch or less each end, no way i could have gotten our old estate in there.

    its bigger than you think in all honest, and i;d rather fork out £700 on a pram i love ( and would want anyway even with a bigger car) than 2-3k on a new car and not get the pram i love

    brill excuse

    The only issue I have is will a Silvercross 3D fit inside the boot of the car?

    Lmao, I can't believe they made you name her. We name all our cars, but I always thought we were a little odd for doing so!

    I have a Fiat Punto, and I have to wonder if I'll have similar issues fitting stuff in.
