The Cybex Silver car seat comes in a large cardboard box. There is a German manual for mounting and 2 plastic holders that protect the car upholstery and leather. Suitable is the seat for children over 15kg. The ISOFIX Connect System allows the car seat in many cars quickly and securely. Which car models support this is the manual refer to. But it is also without.
At first glance, makes the Cybex Silver car seat a reasonable impression. We opted for the color Pure Black. The fabric looks thick, high quality and is also processed good at the seams. Inside are plastic parts and solid polystyrene, which makes the seat relatively easily.
To install with the Isofix are two metal rails, which are located under the seat, facing the rear. Individually allows the rails to the circumstances in the Auto Crop. Under the backrest in the back seat are ideally 2 metal hooks. There, the ends of the rails are purely clicked. If you want, you can see the two plastic holders between rail and hook slide to protect the upholstery. Now one adjusts the length of the rails in such a way that the child seat is firmly against the seatback. That was about it. I must admit that I had some difficulties with the instructions, since the declaration ensured with the small picture with me some confusion. Once you have the seat but once fixed, you know how to do it and realize how simple it all really is.
Who does not have Isofix mounting in the car, the two rails can fold the seat inward, so that they disappear into the seat and do not interfere further.
The belt is carried out below the head rest and bottom of the seat. Should be noted that the child's head rests exactly in the middle between the headrests. Here you can adjust the size individually to the child. The headrest is pulled slightly forward and can be in several stages pulled up depending on the size of the child then.
If the child falls asleep while driving, you have the possibility to set the headrest in 3 angles backwards. So the head does not tilt forward or down. This works flawlessly and quickly. So far, the head has not fallen forward, a real plus!
In other reviews advised of a crackling of the substance. This is the case only at the side parts of the headrest. However, the substance is crackling on the external areas and not inside, where the head is. All the excitement for that I do not understand, because you but does not touch the outer sides constantly. During the trip, even if the child moves, crackles as anything! Apart from the crackling is very quiet and you only hear it when you rumdrückt at the branch offices right there on it.
The remuneration of the car seat are removable and washable at 30 °. One can the substance with slight pollution but also wipe wonderful with a wet cloth.
We had several car seats. Annoying and cumbersome are mostly the installation and removal. At Cybex Silver is finally not a big expense more. You no longer need cumbersome threading the strap here. A simple click in and out of the rails enough. This is done with two hands and a movement.
Our child is 104cm tall and is sitting in this seat properly. Although the child is very narrow, the straps bear against the body and the child can not slip on the seat back and forth. The overall impression is great.
If the child is older, you can remove the seat back slightly so that you can use the base as a cushion later. This seat can therefore be used until the end!
Conclusion: The Silver Cybex Solution X-Fix has passed the test with us everyday. He is very well made, the child sits in super and the head no longer falls forward while sleeping. Installation and removal go fast. The seat is firmly in several cars and does not wobble. Moreover, the child car seat in tests has received many high grades. He is therefore very safe for quite reasonable price.
Very strong buy recommendation!

Something for long-term experience: We have the seat now 1.5 years very satisfied in operation and are still! In substance is virtually no abrasion to recognize the pad is like the first day. We are so been 2 long holiday trips go and otherwise the seat is also used daily. If the child falls asleep in it, the head does not fall forward, which makes the Cybex Silver seat still so special. In the second car we have a cheap seat, since the installation and removal is much more complicated and the head falls asleep at forward. So: Still perfect score! The investment has paid off so what of!
