We’ve all got them and we all use them (I hope).
What seat has worked best for you. We have 3 car seats all Britax römers. One for my wife’s car (isofix and toptether), one for my car (isofix and seat belt) and one that which we use on holiday for hire cars (just belt fitting NO isofix).
We had a really bad experience with a hire car firms seat in Gran Canaria and after that vowed to always take our own.

We have had a fair number over the years most still in use. Started with the eldest in a 2nd hand(I know that isn’t a good idea but the oh was a single parent on benefits) infant Carrier. He was then moved into the Joie stages and rear faced until he as 3 and a bit changed to front due to not fitting in the car and the oh being pregnant and struggling to get him in. Now he is front facing in a britax advancafix 2 (isofix with top tether and belt options) as it had the longest time in a 5 point harness without spending silly money getting a Swedish seat.
The youngest started in a Joie igemm on the Joie advanced base which has allowed us to move him again rear facing to the Joie iadvanced without having to shell out for another base.
After all the research we did when getting the youngests seat the change in legislation to isize made very little difference to us. It just meant we needed to ensure the seat was isofix rather that belt attached. The issue was the lack of products from the manufacturers which meant we stuck with joie.
Looking forward to seeing others views. Especially on extended rear facing.

Ours is a joie 3 in 1 and has worked wonders for us from since my boy was 5 months and using it now at 2 and a half is still brilliant and not to bulky in the back of the car
