Question Need a child car seat

Hi everyone, this is my first post I passed my driving test 2 weeks ago and I've just picked up a 2 year old Modus 1.6 Dynamique Auto today. I have a 2 and a half year old daughter and I need to get a car seat for her but I am having real trouble finding one.

The problem is my daughter weighs 17kg and she is too big for the recommended Group 1 child seat. She isn't old enough for the next size up (Group 2/3) as these are meant to be used by children over 4. I rang the Britax helpline today and they said I definitely should not put her in one of these seats. They were basically implying that I shouldn't put my daughter in the car until she is 4 years old! The only seat they said I could use was a Britax Elite, but it doesn't fit the Modus

Has anyone had a similar problem and could tell me which car seat to get? Thanks.
