I contacted quinny because the straps on my quinny had become too tight for my 1year old. Quinny responded informing me that it has come to their attention that the 07/08 quinny buzz was made with smaller straps and that the seat padding was much thicker, causing them to quickly become too small. Second stage seats are now sold as standard to give extra room, but if you purchased your pushchair before this, to contact the retailer to recieve your free second stage seat cover. The result being that my 1yr old now fits in quinny.

The Quinny Buzz 2007-2010 model requires two seat fabrics. One is thicker, more padded, for a newborn/smaller child and the other is a more canvas type fabric which allows more space for an older child (up to 15kg). You should have received both fabrics when you purchased the Buzz. If you need to buy a 2nd stage (also known as the XL) seat fabric you can do so via your local Quinny retailer or direct with the customer service department on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30. RRP is 40GBP for the seat fabric and if ordered direct there will also be 3.99GBP p&p charge. You slide out the thicker fabric from the sub seat (seat frame) and slide in the 2nd stage seat fabric.
hi the new seat fabric does not fit the older model seat frame but the new model seat unit as a whole(with the metal frame) will fit the older model that is the only difference between them everything else fits the older model does that make sense?
Im not sure if the older fabric fits the new frame but it is worth ago if you need the larger seat later on
if you need further info please leave a comment and i will help further
For Quinny Buzz 2007-2010 model there are two seat fabrics. The infant stage seat fabric is a thicker, neoprene fabric for newborn babies up to approximately 18 months old. The 2nd stage seat fabric is a thick canvas type fabric which replaces the neoprene fabric and provides more space for an older child (approx 18 months to approx 3.5 yrs) Please contact us directly if you require additional assistance - Dorel UK Customer Service
Hi new frame should be ok, the only frame that is different is the older 2005 frame, if you remove your seat unit and check the posts on your seat unit (the bits that slot onto the buzz chassis) if they are both the same and have rounded ends then this is the older model and wont fit the newer frames, but if one of the posts is rounded and the other is shaped like a turret then all the frames 2006 onwards will be ok. :)
I had this problem and phoned Dorell to complain. Apparently the new models have a 2nd stage seat that you use from 18 months. I have a 2007 model so I did not get this. Dorell the makers of the Quinny said that the company that I bought my Quinny from can order one from Dorell. So I went into Mothercare. It was a very long drawn out experience but my XL Seat Fabric arrived yesterday after 3 months. Also if you ask Dorell ( you can get the number from the Quinny website- should be a London number) they will send you some strap extenders for free. Hope this helps.
