Duo child car seat - UK

Anyone here likely to need an MB car seat soon? My daughter is nearly grown out of hers so I've ordered the next size up. I thought I'd offer it on on here before selling on ebay.

Let me know if you are interested in the old seat as I intend to put it on ebay when the new one arrives.

The seat is in good condition, we bought it new and its only been used a few times a week for a short trip to her nursery. Its been in a smoke free car and not had any accidents.

It'll fit in any car and a great fit for the SLK. It has the MB transponder that disables the passenger airbag if you use it the front of MB cars.

It can be secured with a seatbelt or with ISO-fix (the prongs retract so you can use it in a non ISO fix seat like the SLK).

I have the original box.

The official MB details are:

Quote:
DUO plus child seat

The ideal seat for growing passengers, suitable for use over several years.

Adjustable to resting and sleeping positions with a single handle, the Duo plus combines exceptional comfort with safety.

For ages: approximately 8 months 4 years
For weights: 9-18kg


  • Automatic Child Seat Recognition (AKSE)
  • Brace-type belt system with force limitation and adjustable seat belt length
  • Tilt adjustment
  • Optimum protection against side-on collision impacts
  • Hard-wearing, washable cover
  • Standard ISOFIX mounting
I've found a pic of the same model and fabric online, I'll obviously send detailed pics of our seat if anyone is interested.

By the way, we're getting our next seat from Werner-automobile on ebay. I'm sure that's the place we bought our OEM wind break from a few years ago.

Including P&P it'll cost 250, while the cheapest new I could get in the UK was 315. Thank goodness for free trade in the EU!

Also, if you can avoid currency charges if pay with paypal, and they charge to your credit card in .

Link to Werner,

Hi Finn - The seat can't be rear facing. The only MB rear facing seat is the smallest one for babies. I know that Scandinavian countires are keen on rear facing seats up to 3 years old (Volvo make them), but that has not spread to Stuttgart yet!

I was going to look at the typical ebay price for recent sales of the same seat. I'll also see what DHL charge for shippig to Finland, they have a nearby drop off desk.

Are you in a rush? I might not get to research this until the weekend.

Richard
