    Question Pics comparing installed Radian XTSL and SR35

    I am looking for a convertible seat for my son. He is 6 months old, weighs a little over 19 pounds, and is 28.5 inches long. After much researching I'm thinking that a Radian XTSL would work well for his next seat.

    I searched the successful Radian install thread and couldn't find anything on a '95 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme. Not knowing much about cars I don't know what is similar to it.

    Anyway, is anyone willing to share any pictures where they have a SR35 installed with the base, then the Radian XTSL installed RF in the same position at a more upright angle, say 40 degrees? I'm trying to get an idea of how much space it takes up front to back while RFing and thought comparing it to the seat we already have might help.

    We would like to install the Radian in the center position where the SR35 currently is and I would like to know if that is feasible. Unfortunately I can't find a store near where I live so I can try one out, so I thought I would ask here.

    I feel like he is growing so fast, and I'm not sure how long it will take him to outgrow his SR35. Here is a pic of him a month ago (5 months about 18.5 pounds, not sure how tall).

    Diapers.com offers free return shipping (and they are very easy to work with!) so you could buy one there, try it, and if you don't like it, return it. I did it recently with a Frontier. I had the money back in my Paypal account the day they received it back. They give you a UPS label to send it back.

    he looks like he has quite a bit of room to grow in the SR35.

    It's good to know it's so easy to return by mail. I was worried about having to do that. The deals weren't as good at places like BRU where I can order and return in the store if it doesn't work out.

    When i looked at the BRU site, it says the Radian ships for free, so if you don't like it, you could just return it to the store, and haven't lost any money ... seems like the same deals on Diapers.com, however, they do have a better selection of colors!
