Legality of booster seat in middle of rear?

Hi Guys,

What is the deal with legislation in connection with seat belts in the middle of the back seat? Are children legally okay to be strapped in the middle on a booster if there is only a lap belt and not a full belt?

Asking as number three is due for August - number two and three will need a full belt for their car seats so number one will be bumped into the middle.

Should I change from petrol to diesel?

My father drives a 2008 1.8-litre petrol Mazda6. He drives on average 10,000km per year. He is considering trading his car for a new 1.9- or 2.0-litre TDI - Audi A4 or VW Golf/Jetta.

He is also considering doing a trade for a 2004/2005 BMW 320d. In your opinion is it worth while for him to change his car to a diesel and what diesel cars would you recommend?
