This made me lol. I had the 8 track cartridge that converted to the new fangled cassette. Er.. thanks for the reminder, I think.
Yes but think about it.. if you need this and have a car with no AUX input then it's likely your car itself feels quite cheap and plasticy! I am a proud owner of a skoda rapid 63 plate, fantastic car, never lets me down, ultra reliable but very very basic on the inside but I couldn't care less.. this is a gadget for me! On another note.. I have a cheaper model of these and I find when the stereo reception on the frequency kicks in, all sounds good, but most of the time for some reason it's non stereo and it doesn't sound great! Is this just the way it is with these things or would I benefit from a different one - like this for example?

There is a snob in Dagenham that interfers with his bang bang music on 87.5 band over my car transmitter always when I drive around the area . Who are you? :D Doubt it's legal but no one cares)
My cayenne 2006 doesn’t and this may help. It a timeless classic which I intend to keep. You must be dumb btw ;)

I needed this one for two boys. The Cybex one was a great deal though. Thanks!
Check the Cybex I posted a few days ago, proper brand, proper good seat, and only about £50. Sadly, the color will not suit everyone.
Bought this in the midnight grey from Asda at a really good price... my husband complains he prefers the Britax Romer we have for our son. I think it’s the whole leaning over to buckle the seatbelt so it could be justthe way our seats are in the car.
I voted hot, I got a 820 explorer from CEX for £85 about a month ago but I really like the look of these
But not close to the level of detail that some require. Tbh I knew this would go cold but also know that some keen cyclists want this device and money saved is money saved! (y) (y)
Yes they are probably spending more money developing and updating the software but still there are many free or low cost options for software on google play store.
I can't argue with that, is there something to be said for software and the weekly updates? Much like the apple model of one software for one product and that having longevity and somewhat justifying the cost.
My point is the price of manufacturing vs the retail cost is so huge. I think it was a Garmin model that is based on a low cost Mediatek chip that probably only costs $1-2 and the rest of the product has no special components and yet retails at around £200 yet probably costs only about $15 or so to make. It's like margins even Apple would be impressed with. There are more expensive components that go into a £30 smartphone like an Alcatel. Just seems like another product for cyclists that has exploitative margins and pricing.
Yes, a seat like this does have limited legroom, but my 3 kids comfortably rear faced to ages 6, 5 and 4 years (he was 125cm and 25kg at that point!) in their seats. They've moaned more since they've had to go forward facing!
I know! It's bizarre.
That's all good and well but they forget that kids have legs and regardless of weight don't really fit after about 2 years.
After almost 4 years with this car seat with 2 toddlers having 2 years (each) worth out of it, I would not recommend. First of all, the build quality is okay but we found that the seat overall too big for the car (Kia Sportage and Mercedes B140 which are decent sized cars) yet too small for toddler, the straps constantly twisted and trying to untangle with an impatient toddler was not fun. The seat does tilt but we still had to stop the car from time to time as when the child fell asleep, their heads slumped even when tilted fully back. Yes it has its advantages with the swivel and isofix but that's it IMHO. Note that we just had to recently bin it as the swivel mechanism failed to lock. That said, we were debating getting rid of it anyway as the youngest who is now 2 1/2 has outgrown. Just my opinion so do what you shall with it. I have an old hand me down car seat in my own car from Brittax and I wouldn't swap it for any of these gimmicks.
An isofix fitted seat is no safer than a seatbelt fitted seat unless you're incapable of following instructions. Plus isofix is only rated to a maximum combined weight of 33kg, meaning the majority of isofix seats are limited to an 18kg child, whereas seatbelt fitted seats are safe to hold harnessed children to 25kg.

As far as I know it's not been knocked of top spot. Highly reviewed across many utubers and stood up bar none in torture tests. Best utuber for car products is Brian from apex auto. As Tina Turner once sang ...."simply the best"
Bilt Hamber for me too. Purely for the performance and amount you get. There's plenty of non acidic cleaners that do the same job but you've to apply more and get less.
What a garbage deal just buy a cheaper iron fallout remover?
Bought this today and used to clean inner rims that where coated with brake dust and not been cleaned for years. It did an excellent job and is a good deal if you needed some resin polish and interior cleaner like i did, thanks op
No opinion on this seat , but I believe even at 4 children should have a harness fitting. I won't put my grandchildren in this as no harness fitting. Think manufacturers should invest in more affordable harness car seats for bigger / older children .
Thanks for a very helpful response. Will get a Group 1/2/3 seat instead. Btw, I do remember reading about the evolutionary theory in Sapiens (Yuval Noah Harari) about humans giving birth to their kids too young vis-a-vis other animals. (y)
Fair enough but having used a similar iso-safe tether type one before (can’t remember what it was) I’m much happier with the Cybex solid iso-fix I now use, no movement at all and super easy to remove/refit. While the seatbelt does the safety bit the iso-fix bit adds stability and convenience.
These aren’t “ISO fix”, they are “ISO Safe”. I have 2, bought a second after the first was so good. As mentioned if you pull the straps & also hook it under the headrest they are very secure!
Sorry if it seems judgemental, it's more a simple statement of fact. Group 2/3 are designed for children who have physically developed to the age of 3 minimum, and really 4 years. The difference is huge at that age, 3 years is 50% more growing time when compared to a 2 year old. It's not like us old farts when it's just another birthday gone by, this is real, massive stages of physical development.
Yeah it's just the Halfords advanced tools. I'd wait until fathers day and there will be some real deals available. You could even apply in store for a trade card (most jobs/trades accepted) it's free and gives you an extra discount on goods online and in store. You can link your card online when registering with Halfords and then you can use voucher online and click and collect. Making the discount better and you get more for your money (y) hope that helps.
Thanks. Il hold tight for a bit then I got till July to use the voucher. They gave it cos they still not seen my bike under the govt bike scheme. Happy days
