baby seat installation

as you can see, the bottom cushion can be easily removed in our e39. it only takes a firm tug and it pops off. does anyone know if i can install a rear facing baby seat right on the sound deadening surface? even if it's doable i dont know if its safe or legal.

i don't it matters on the cushions as most baby seats have their own cushioning. The only thing is when you attach it since there are no anchor pylons like with new cars, just make sure you get that thing in there as tight as possible. When installed, the car seat should not move more an 1 inch up or side to side when in place. Also, the safest place for the car seat is the center rear position. Good luck
