Ferrari child seat

I just got the Ferrari child seat.

It looks great in the 308 and my 2 and a half year old daughter loves it.

I have attached some pics.

It depends on the country and in the US can vary by state.

I think it depends how safety conscious you are. I would rather my child is in a seat until she is at least 5 or 6.

The Ferrari seat comes in a baby seat and a booster seat - mine is the booster seat.

How cool are the Sabelt harnesses?

Alright….just called my wife and she said and I quote “well, she will be in a car seat until she is at least 5 and maybe until 6 years old….why do you ask?”

I replied, “No reason I was just asking…thank you!” then hung up…..lol
Im not going to wait 5-6 years to get my car, im looking at next summer or the following winter at the most....SO....she WILL need a FERRARI car seat!!!!!!!! lololololol

Seatbelts harnesses are really neat…..

I have a question about VAT and pricing…..I look at the website (Ferrari Store) and it says….

124.17
178.66 (Ex. VAT)

So what the hell is the price?!?!?!?!?

That should be including VAT (VAT is similar to sales tax).

Great looking seat, works well with the 308.

For the other questions, how long a child seat is needed is based more on weight and height than age.

My son has the same booster seat, I bought it last Christmas.
I got it from Mothercare in the UK: Full seat with back and harness was £89.99 inc VAT. Just the booster seat base was £49.99 inc VAT

http://www.mothercare.com/gp/search/...e=12&x=17&y=19

Mothercare have a sale on at the moment. Full seat is £79.99 and booster seat is £29.99.
