    Default Australian capsules and overseas model prams/strollers

    I'm a bit nervous asking this question, since some people will say its not a good idea to look at an overseas model pram. However here goes...

    I am currently pregnant with my 4th bub, and we have smallish SUV. It has a 7 seat option and I need to get a very compact stroller to go into the tiny little odd shaped boot space that is left when the third row seats are in use. I was pleasantly surprised by the quinny zapp extra recently, but found out that the USA model has four wheels and also folds with the seat part still attached to the frame. I've contacted IGC Dorel, and they have advised me they have no intention of bringing that model out here, and have also refused to answer my questions (probably for legal reasons).

    I am considering getting the USA model shipped out as it appears to do all the things I want/need in a pram/stroller this time around, however I am aware that a USA capsule would be illegal for use here.

    My questions are:
    Does anyone know if the travel system adaptors come with the stroller or the capsule?

    Has anyone shipped a pram from the USA and been able to attach an Australian standards capsule to the travel system frame?

    Any ideas anyone has would be much appreciated.

    I too am going to get the zapp xtra as it has to fit in the boot of my MINI. I have no qualms about buying overseas
    And would think getting or modifying the adaptors wouldnt be difficult! I would be interested to see what others have done though. I want the cabrio fix car seat but may make do with the local triton? I think. I can't imagine the adaptors are all different fir all the different capsules.
