4 series convertible Baby seat (F33)

Trying to find pics or videos online of baby seats in the back of a F33. Does anyone have an F33 with car seats? Wondering how snug it is, and how much leg room the front passenger will have.

I had a forward facing seat for my 2.5 yr old granddaughter and there was enough room in the front passenger seat for my 16 yr old 5’6” 98# daughter.

Really should get a seat and put it in your F33 (appears you have one). For average sized people, we were fine.

I know the 4GC has a much bigger backseat area than the coupe/vert, but my rear-facing Chicco Keyfit 30 fits in the middle seat without having to move either front seat forward.

I remembered seeing a tuning video where they loaded it with tons of stuff for their test. You can see a car seat in the back of this F33





I've sat in the rear of the F32, F33, and F36 and the leg room is rough for any adult over 5'8", but anyone under that is fine unless there's a giant driving. I've never seen any kids seem cramped or uncomfortable in the back - the little buggers always have sufficient leg room to kick the back of the seat for the entire trip.

Hi, I've been searching over the Internet for this issue for quite some time. Here are some real pics in threads from other forums. Those are E93s though, should apply to F33 which has more back room.

As much as I want my kid to ride the BMW from an infant, I still think it's a bad idea even with a perfectly fit car seat. The rear windshield will shatter by the anti-roll bar in the event of a crash, glass will hit your baby. I got my rear windshield tinted as soon as I got the car, but I still have this fear.
