Hi,This is in response to the owner of the 996 that wants to disengage the passenger side air bag for a child seat.I had a difficult time finding a seat for my 993 as well. The Porsche seat is about $400. The Recaro child seat is slightly less. The bottom line is that the child is safer in the back seat and The Cosco Eddie Bauer seat as well as the new Graco booster style seat fit back there really well. My daughter has used the Cosco seat with the existing seat belt since she was about 3. It is light weight comes in nice colors and is easy to move from one car to another. The child is safe back there and there is no need to mess with the air bag.Your 996 rear seats are larger than mine and your car may have an existing tether if you need one. No one could tell me if the Porsche seat fit back there. I ended up taking my car to a baby store,in July, in Florida, to test seats.It was fun! I hope this helps you avoid some hassle.Thanks,Jennifer
