    Default Isofix carseats

    Can you even buy them in Australia - the actual capsule? I've never seen them but really would like to be able to buy one for older child (age 5) to fit him until age 7 yo. He currently has the standard Maxi Rider.

    I don't think you can, but I know they plan on bringing them to Australia in 2013.

    (off the top of my head, I could be wrong)

    Well no wonder I'm not having any luck finding them lol. What a shame, 2013 sounds like such a long time away.... then DS will likely not need one anyway!

    They dont pass standards yet.

    I want some, but cant find a car with 3 points.

    DS pressed send too soon

    I'm pretty sure some european seven seaters have 3 points, like the Peugeot touring models.. But I dont think any small cars have that, isofix seats sit a fair bit in from the door (another reason i think they are really safe) so fitting three seats in the back is impossible, unless the ar has three genuine seats not the usual 2,5..

    What do you mean by 3 points?

    Ability to put 3 seats across the seat using ISOFIX, instead of 2.
