United-Kingdom Quinny Buzz in boot?

Hi all, done a search but still unsure and now just looking for a definative answer before I trawl off down to the shops. Does the quinny buzz pushchair fit in the boot of an 05 cooper? (with its wheels attatched and without losing the rear parcel shelf or folding the seats) any help would be appreciated, but no rush as the new arrival won't arrive until Jan next year! (hopefully by then Maxi Cosi should have got their act together and produced an isofix version of the cabrio) Cheers

Ps I must get round to changing my car profile (should now be called AstroBlackCooper)

Their website says that the Orange Flash cabrio is isofix ready and Daisy & Tom in Guildford say it and the base will be released around x-mas (hopefully)

always take anything car seat launch related with a pinch of salt, have a B option seat in mind, as there is so much to do in testing and developing a car seat

last one I worked on was about 6 months late

I have found this a lot so far, you know how it is - brand new product- the internet chinese whispers - manufacturer gives a "probabal date" - all potential purchasers go nuts and order - manufactuer claims development issues and the product finally surfaces a year later. If the isofix version is not available at x-mas, I will still buy the normal Cabrio as long as the Buzz fits in the boot.

most of the whispers start from retailers pressing for information, so the supplier gives them confidential information, they then tell it to their customers when they shouldn't. Then something goes on in the development process to delay it, then there is uproar, trust me

My guess is that Maxi will show the seat or base at the Cologne show this September, if not then it won't be out for sometime.

Its really complicated, but so many factors can effect launch dates of products, from the first off tool sample to the physical testing, to certification, to then getting it into production, so many things to go possibly go wrong at so many stages.

Thanks for the reply, you obviously know your onions (or baby seats) Is the Cologne show to showcase all new products or just car seats? how about starting another internet rumour by giving me the heads up on any other isofix baby seats in the pipeline With the research I have done so far, I feel the isofix route is probably the sensible option and I may as well use the facility that the Mini is fitted with but it just seems as if the car industry have taken the technology on- board and started fitting to many new models and the seat manufacturers do not as yet have enough products to satisfy demand, I understand it takes a long time to get these things right before launch but it is a bit like launching the car before sombody invented the engine

a car seat takes about 3 years to develop and get onto to the shelves

The Cologne show is the biggest baby and child product show, there are others, but not as big. Vegas is aiming to be as big, and a friend at work is going to check out the Japan show this year, personally I prefer Germany, better beer

Not sure about what others have in development, as we do try to keep it as hush hush as possible so that there aren't too many disapointments when things go a bit slower or if a product gets canned before it makes it to production

Oh and sorry, yes isofix is good, its been on the drawing boards for sometime, a real slow down was the car manufacturers, they all tried to make it specific to their brands so that they could just sell seats themselves and then take the market with high priced items.

Thats why seats are taking so long, and also to make sure that they fit as many cars as possible

Thanks for you time, makes life a bit easier knowing how much time has to go into these products, I won't hold my breath for a sudden x-mas flurry of isofix onto the market

To answer the original question: the Quinny Buzz does NOT fit in the boot. Went to the baby stuff store yesterday & took the Buzz out to the MINI- even after removing the 2 rear wheels from the stroller it still won't go into the trunk.

Still debating between the Zapp or Aria...

We have a quinny, but no mini !!!!!
Our Quinny is a Zapp though, and our mini will be here shortly, but im very confident that it will easily fit in the boot, afterall it is one of the worlds smallest pushchairs.

Sorry, that hasn't really answered your question. Our wee boy is now 5 months, so we have ditched our Bebecar pram (Big and Bulky) and bought a Quinny Zapp, all i can say about that is great great great !!!!

It's not mission difficult Mr Hunt, It's Mission Impossible
Mission difficult should be a walk in the park for you....

Mission Impossible is trying to get your wife to understand that we really do need a Cooper S

Hi, After the post from the chap in Canada I decided to bite the bullett (alloys!) and get off my lazy backside and just do what I should have done to start with....... go to the BL**DY shop and see if it fits!, after a few swear words (sorry Holly from Daisey and tom) I now KNOW the following:

The quinny buzz has a separate chassis and the infant seat can be detatched. The chassis when folded fits in the boot with the wheels attatched (and the infant seat detatched) BUT you have to loose the parcel shelf - all well and good if you have the maxi cosi cabrio infant seat for the first few months but where do you put the infant seat part after that. Also the front wheel of the pushchair pokes up between the rear headrests when the boot is closed, slightly restricting rear view. This, I feel is a bit too much of a compromise so the Zapp is now the pushchair of choice - small, Maxi Cosi Cabrio fits in it,
and my wife and I should be able to get a few bits of shopping etc in as well!

Cheers G17RDY, you can rest assured that the Zapp fits. If your little one is 5 months old you must have had the same conversations with friends as me that usually start " Oh but the mini won't be big enough surely?" I'm afraid I have not yet come up with a good reply except "Yeah, but it will still beat you wallowing people carrier around corners" childish, I know but you have to have some fun out of life
