    Will I need to sell my coupe?

    Hi all

    I've got a Coupé Turbo which as most of you know only has 2 seat belts in the back.

    Problem is I already have two kids and two fairly large baby seats strapped into the back. My girlfriend thinks she may be pregnant again so am in the process of thinking of sh1t, am I going to have to sell my car?

    What I want to know is, is it possible to modify the rear seats to get another seat belt put in. I wouldn't of thought it would be that hard as they are exactly the same style as the hatch etc..

    I'm thinking, one baby seat and two booster seats would fit in the back.

    Not sure if you can fit a middle seatbelt in the back but I will let you swap your car for mine as it has 3 rear belts

    I'd guess your quite safe in fitting a lap belt from the hatch as already said it has the same anchor points. Put the missus in the middle between the two current baby seats and put the new baby seat in the front. That way all the seats are safe and the missus can look after the kids in the back with ease. Note that the passenger airbag will need to be either disabled or you will have to buy a vauxhall babyseat with the transponder to disable it.

    Much as you like your car Patrick, maybe you should start to think about a Zafira GSi ?

    More sense in the long run. . . .
