Bump.

I just got my Recaro Como G2, will be having a daughter in 2 months. The seat fits fine in my wifes 128i, passenger seat almost all the way up...lol. My car is a bit more friendly. I had some questions though. Anyway to install latch mounts (kit or custom make)? Does the weight of the seat and seat+baby damage the seat? How can I avoid any damaging? Is it best to install rear-facing in the middle or on the side of the seats? I'm a noob to babies, lol, any help would be appreciated.

I installed a rear facing Chicco in the back of my car. I put it in the middle. Not really comfortable having the baby next to either window just in case of an accident. No, it does not damage the seat.

See if you can get a hold of one of these in your country.

it will help secure the seat tighter. Ask me how I know. If you are using a seat that has a base that you leave in the car try using the middle lap belt and going out to one of the sides, it makes it easier than using a shoulder belt. Make sure to get a pad they sell at most baby stores to protect your seats also.

Thanks, I guess I will make a trip to babies'r'us to see if they have all the items in store. Also, the base is not detachable. I'm in Maryland as well

I would consider a 4 door BMW but that would make things too easy.

It looks like I'll be picking up a Jeep Wrangler this weekend...my wife (who knows car seats like DanIAm knows beer) is shopping for the Recaro seat right now.

Wow! I'm so glad I read through this thread...I have a new son and couldn't get the infant seat to secure to the seat correctly. After reading this I put it in the center position and knelt in it to tighten the belt sufficiently. Thanks for the tips folks!!
