I agree. The problem with ours was not the car seat itself, but you need to be able plug it on a stroller when the time comes. You maybe able to fit a stroller that fits in the trunk (horizontally) but then you can't put anything else back there. So the only combo that fit vertically while leaving some space there was an ultralight Peg-perego and it's car seat.

It's a Fiat Coupe Turbo 20v ... The owner repainted the car using PPG paint and the colour Giugario Silver if i'm not mistaken it's a Ferrari colour and the sickest paint job i've seen so far

The front of that car is amazing, the back and the sides, meh. One brand I really wish we still got stateside is Alfa. If we could get Brera's here I might have one instead of a Bimmer, haha.

Well the handling on a Brera really sucks ... better not but the Alfa 159 GTA really look stunning and handles like a dream



But the previous Alfa's still look stunning if modded properly ... behold the 156

Off topic, but where are you from? You live in Malaysia but you have perfect English. Did you move there or are you one of those people that can switch back and forth between 10,000 languages?

Oh right, should've known that. I easily would've believed you were English/American/Australian and had moved there. I wish I could speak a second language, but learning has proved to be much more difficult for me than others.

Well actually I went to England when I was 17 and stayed there for 7 1/2 years before coming back to Malaysia hehehe so that could be one of the reasons that my English is quite good tho my grammar still kinda sucks ...
