View Full Version : Ahem ... baby seats in an S3?

Don't get too excited, if my Granny gets wind of this thread she'll pass away in excitment, so don't go starting any rumours just yet! :lol:

So, mrs act:GTI were wondering if anyone has any experience with baby seats in an S3 ... y'know, just in case there's a bit of movement at the station, if you know what I mean.

Is it just me or is the front seat latch on the S3 a bit of a pain in the arse to move/fold the seat forward? I have tried this on the R32 and a standard 3 dr Golf at Lennock in Canberra and it worked a treat, but on the S3 it just doesn't seem to work as well. :?

Luckily we also have an Outback so any S3 child ferrying would be secondary to the family planner wagon we have.

:wink: :shock: :wink:

I have 2 points to bring up here;

1) Don't use the front seat unless you can switch off the airbag.

2) Children in back seats cause accidents. Accidents in back seats cause children. Play it safe, drive a roadster! :big_wink:

Apparently a handful came into Australia via a botched up order or something. If you delve thru the "car spotting" thread on the Vortex you should be able to dig up some pics that I took. :wink:

I see a 3 door golf in brookvale all the time. Looks great. VW should botch up the orders more often :wink:

So, baby seats in the back of an S3 anyone?

And, like I said, is it just me or does it take a while to get the hang of working the front seat/rear access thingy in the S3 too?

Lucas has baby seat in his S3. He is in Sydney this weekend so you can ask him as I believe a few of the guys are catching up for a drink or two.

Thanks for that. I'm not in Syd this weekend, but at least I can pester someone about this!

Cheers :wink:

No worries, I think he may have been making a detour thru Canberra as well?? He is probably in his A4 though.

What is his user name on here? I am sure he posted about this and I suggested a Cbr detour but stuffed if I can find the thread. From what I've heard of Lucas' A4 I don't think it any shame that he's not in his S3.
