They do feel more secure if the LATCH system is utilized, but the seat belts work just fine.

hahaha i love that pic

Great thread topic!

When the time comes I'll be sure to do my research and find a seat that works in all of my cars.

Wouldn't want to exchange my toys for toys for my little ones if I could avoid it.

I have a Britax in my M3 and it works just fine. Make sure the belt is just too tight to buckle and then put your knee into it, sink it into the cushins and you should be able to buckle it. I also put some old 740i floor mats between the Britax seat and the rear seat cushins.

Thanks guy's for all your advise and help. I already have a recaro young sport seat which i think will be great but my daughter is too small for it. She is only 5 months old but weighs 19 lbs. It can only be used front facing and she is too small for that. I am going to look at some car seats at the weekend. Thanks again

My younger son is in a Recaro Sigmo - which was rear facing @ first; but is now forward facing as he is 2 years old. Similar to the young Sport, it has
the ability to grow with the child.

As stated from another poster, you may need to put the rear facing on the left hand side (if car is right hand drive) and move the passenger seat forward and straighten the seat back.

I use a Graco (fairly popular in the States) in the middle for my 3 year old, and my two older sones (7 and 9) ride on the sides.
