I would recommend the Britax (we used the Marathon). When our son was born we got 3 seats (2 were gifted). A Graco, an Eveflo and a Britax. Our son insticntivly prefered the Britax. Every infant who used the Britax (our son's friends) loved it.
For the Stroller a Mclaren (now which car guy wont want a Mclaren if only it is a stroller) is a great protable stroller but the ultimate was the Per Perego. They have a 3 wheeler one you can jog with (it has all wheel suspension and 12" tyres!). It fits perfectly in the Laura (it fit in my RS).

Great Intro there. Carpentry is not an easy hobby to pursue, the wood blocks I destroyed 20 years back in the college carpentry workshop still haunt me.
Child seats, I am a current owner of one. For my first kid, I chose from the finest in the grand aisles of Babies"R"Us. But with the second kid, it was slim pickings in the limited baby shops in Bangalore.
But it is good know some basics when you venture into Bangalore baby shops. The sales men/women you encounter would have never used one to know any better.
1) Pick a seat whose cloth material can be easily removed for washing. The seat can get very dirty in local weather. You wouldn't want to put your bundle of joy in dirty seat.
2) All buckles should be made of metal. Plastic buckles may look cute, but it is said that the buckles experience most stress during an accident. The plastic buckle will simply give up.
In India I haven't come across infant child seat, therefore you may want to wait and purchase the 4+ month baby seat.

thanks everyone for the warm welcome. not expected but not surprised either :-) hope i haven't offended anybody by giving a late intro (after some 60 odd posts.) this is my first active participation (reading and posting) in any forum so waited till i realized that i will be here for the long run.
navin and Samurai thanks for the info on the child seats. now that i know the brands, i can source them somehow. BTW, Skoda Laura has some ISOFX child seat fixtures - anyone familiar with it?
hmmm.. my carpentry and sewing skills are pretty elementary. i only have hand tools for all the carpentry work - no Bosch/Hitachi, etc. i get the heavy duty sawing done at nearby timber shops. i built a very decorative cage for my girlfriend's pet (worked better than a ton of roses) and i am planning to stitch a nice frock for the baby - my wife wants pants but i am the one who got the scissors :-)
I have ruined lot of expensive stuff on the pretext of repairing them. I am planning to get a VAG-COM cable and software for the Laura - is it worth it? It costs < $350 at Ross-Tech: Home
Thanks again for the welcome messages.

I believe the information you are looking for is in here.
