Hi, I pick up a carens 5 seat GS today.

I've been wondering, is it possible to install the 2 extra seats straight into it? (i understand I'll have to take the other flat bit out). Is it an easy job or even possible?

Cheers
Phil.

The V5 will say the seating capacity is 5 seats, carry more than that in the car and you are breaking the law. If it is possible to add the extra 2 seatsand seat belts you will have to get the car inspected by I guess the DVLAand details on the V5 changed. The insurance company will also need to be informed that the car is now a 7 seater not a 5 seater and since this is a modification they will probably charge you more.
Why not buy a 7 seater in the first place if you need 7 seats.

No, it's not possible to change! Besides all the good info Paul has given, the centre seats are different on the seven seater. They have a sliding mechanism to adjust them forwards/backwards plus of course a tip function so you can get into the rear seats.

As Paul says, if you want 7 seats why not buy one in the first place?

Hi, Ahhh yes, the V5 document. Slight oversight on my part .... logical when you sit and think about it for more than 5 seconds ;-)
