Is this the one that spins backwards?

Cheaper else where, Halfords for example
you can have it rear facing up to 18kg, around 4 years old

its not the 360 one no
We have two of these and they are indeed brilliant. It's not the 360 spin one that can rotate to face the door but it can be rear or front facing and is good from newborn until old enough to not need a seat pretty much. We bought one from Halfords and the other from uber kids. Both around £120 mark with various discounts applied at the time.
Really good quality seat. Unfortunately, my newly 3 year old figured out how to release the tensioner, so it won't necessarily last until 4.

You'd also be very lucky for your kids legs to remain short enough to stay rear facing for much past 2.
Just a thought for people with newborns. Although these seats might be compliant with the regs, please be weary. We were going to buy two of the Joie multistage to keep at the in-laws in Italy. However we were given two different group 0 to group 2 seats (with new born inserts). One had no tilt mechanism to recline, the other did, but because of the size (even in a big car with front seat moved all the way forward) it was useless. When we put our newborns ( week 37 birth), there was absolutely no support for their heads. My partner had to squeeze herself between the two seats (not good after a CZ) just to keep their heads from tipping forwards and lolling side to side. The father in law declared them as "murder in a seat".....I had had huge issues convincing the Italian in laws that we needed car seats, as many Italians simply transport babies in a carry cot, strapped into the back seats. Honestly, if my partner had not sat between the two seats and supported their heads, I believe our babies would have had neck damage and possibly suffocated from their heads tipping forwards.
If you are going to buy a multistage seat for a new born, make sure that it provides good (not adequate) head and neck support, and that there is sufficient room in your car for it to recline to a (near) horizontal position. Compliance with regulations, does not strictly = safety.

Yes how good an angle the seat is positioned when rear facing is dependent on the car you are fitting it into. Not all car seats work equally well in all cars. Depends on the angle of the cars own seat, the width of the back door and the length of the seat belt and buckle stalk.
Always best to get one fitted in your car first if at all possible.

Very true, but I was also referring to the lateral head protection. The newborn inserts in the seats we were given were not adequate to support the babies heads from twisting from side to side. My maxi Cosi pebble seats are a perfect snug fit and give lots of support, whilst the group 0 to group 2 seats (one was actually a group 0/group 1) we were given were very poor. It would have been better if the seats could recline more, bit not a patch on the pebbles which are group 0 only.
