If its cos of the mess and marks of car seats then invest in a cover for the back it will keep the fabric clean and stop car seats marking it.

£1 million pounds

Don't really know the cost fella as I was the second owner of the car, IIRC is was quite an expensive upgrade

Before I bought my white one I looked at an ST3 in Sea Grey and this had a 3rd rear seat belt fitted. Not sure weather it was an option or not, but it definitely had 3 seat belts in the back......

I believe you could but it would not be as simple as just fit a lap belt as you would have to get it tested as it is registered to only carry 4 people, change the V5 and change the insurance (probably more things to do as well).

A lot cheaper and easier to get a
2.

you could always get a 2 and get the seats recovered in leather - both bases covered then

(maybe a little expensive for the recover but maybe an option for you)

I have an ST2 and have exactly the same back seat configuration. Strangely enough, mine is also blue! I was the second owner of my car, I have no idea why the previous owner asked for this, and it was a Ford manager's car!
