In Reply to: Kids car seats in M Coupe- opinions? posted by clausy on April 19, 2000 at 10:00:59:

My dealer strongly warned against carrying young children. At the time they mentioned a weight limit that made me think "no children under eight years old".

I don't have the manual in front of me, but it >may< also warn against anyone under a particular weight.

The problem, as MikeyZ points out, is that the system has both front and side airbags. Even putting the seat all the way back won't isolate the passenger from airbag action. All in all I wouldn't feel comfortable unless I could install a switch to disable the passenger-side bags.
