Sorry..havent got the link.

I only saw it at my dealers installed in a new 335i vert waiting to be picked up by its owners.

The dealer told me that they had to import it privately, but i am sure he showed me the seat in some BMW Acc cat.
I will talk to the dealer and see if I can find out for you.

It was an awsome looking baby seat..really mod and loooked like a mini recaro seat.

Saw a pic a while ago, lets see if I can find it again. Yup, Go here: http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...equipment.html

... then look at the last pic in the series, is that it? If I were a baby, I'd be happy in that!

Thanks. Here's a better page:

http://www.bmw.co.uk/bmwuk/accessories/0,,1312_181236482__bs-MQ%3D%3D%40bb-Q1A%3D%40sit-bmwuk%40dht-aHR0cDovL3d3dy5iYXllcmlzY2hlYm13Lm5ld2RvbG4ubmV0,0 0.html

Damned Flash pages: Click on 'Safety and Security'.

No pricing though and it looks like it uses the ISOFIX anchoring system which I don't think is yet AS approved here. I could be wrong though.

The Monza is only for 15kg and above. I got a different Recaro (Young Sport). It's suitable for kids from 9kg so my bubs will be able to fit in there soon. http://www.recaro.com/index.php?id=3324&L=2 I only paid USD199 plus $120 shipping. Happy to send you the guys email for anyone who may be interested.

i thought you said 800 earlier?! sorry to be slow on the uptake....

1600 for two is reasonable but 3600?! that's a bit much!

i have resigned myself to the fact that anything at all imported from premium producers will be ridiculously overpriced by the time it gets to our shores!
