What do you think?

Oh wow!

I remember when I used to get 3 seats in the back of my old Fiesta when my 2 were little.

Happy days! :D

How clever , quite expensive though !

Wonder why no-one's thought of that before?

They look good

they look really good, and cheaper than a new car

28-01-2009, 10:02 PM
OMG, what a fabulous idea - but how much, they are so expensive!!!!!

28-01-2009, 10:04 PM
They look amazing. But the cost! over £300 per seat but min purchase £1000!!!! :eek: The insurance companies are going to have to up the indivdual limit (£200) on replacing car seats aren't they?

Also would your car insurance allow it. Wouldn't you technically be overloaded if you used one of these to convert a 5 seater to a 6 seater, as your insurance covers you for the maximum that the car is registered/designed to carry IYSWIM

Good point madasahatter. :clapping: You have to notify DVLA of any modifications as well, would adding an extra seat come under this I wonder?:idea:

28-01-2009, 11:01 PM
Thats a very good invention tho. But your probably right that insurance wouldnt allow it or your premlium would go through the roof. x

Great invention.

Be good for the couple who have just had octuplets!!

29-01-2009, 11:31 AM
Wouldn't there arms be overlapping each other?

Lol :laughing:
In principle I think it's a good idea but I'd like to see one close up to see how much room the kids really had - if you're squeezing 4 kids into a space that's sometimes a squash for three wouldn't they be a little bit on the cramped side?

29-01-2009, 02:03 PM
I would love that but have worked out the combination I would need comes to £1700, would be cheaper to change cars. Allthough we would get 6 years use out of it.

29-01-2009, 04:54 PM
Look geat but like has been said before very very expensive £1,299

29-01-2009, 05:09 PM
What a good idea,

Way too pricey though, it said it didnt know if it would fit in my ford escort:laughing: .

Its would be worth more than the car

Blimey I could turn my discovery into a Taxi,:laughing:
4 on the back seat and 4 inthe boot:laughing:

did anyone look into these for insurance reasons?

it might solve my slight issue thats for sure.

26-02-2009, 07:44 PM
If you get an answer from an insurance company let us know. No that I would use it myself, unless there safety reports are exceptional, there is no side protection.

Mmm, must say I'm surprised by the following from their site.

What insurance companies say about multimac
Norwich Union

Fitting a Multimac will convert your car from a 5-seater to a 6-seater. It has been discussed by the ABI (Association of British Insurers) who have welcomed it as a further contribution to child safety, and report that its members will not change premiums, but you should however, advise them that you are using a Multimac. Norwich Union have specifically stated that: ‘The Multimac is Norwich Union approved, and fitment will not invalidate your policy’

thankyou for that.

I discussed it with me hubby last night and there are more cons than pros

for instance when I'm out with no children and need a big boot such as stock from the garden centre I cant easily remove the seating system to lye it all down flat.

also 3 days a wk I have mainly over 8's who moan at being on booster seats so might cause bigger issues having them strapped in a 5 point but it is so much safer.

I think I may have managed to convince him to look into gaining an 8 seater but not pushing him anymore, walking isnt really an issue for me its just the younger ones they tire quickly and too old for a buggy.
