    Three across in my caliber..

    So when I checked to make sure these would "fit" when they arrived I was only worried they had enough room on the seat, and it didn't occur to me to actually *install* them That was not fun.. it's almost 90 out, and I had to install/re-install each seat about 3 times to be totally sure that none were relying on another to get a secure install. The radian was a total PITA to instal RF.. especially since I had to use the seatbelt. I'm sure if I had used LATCH it would have been easier since it's easier to tug on those than the seatbelt, but it did NOT want to get tight with the belt, at all Most of my struggling was just with that.

    I'm not sure I'm happy with how they are arranged, to be honest... I can't fit the BV in the center as I would have preferred to.. the center radian is slightly askew because I didn't even out the front seats - so one side is resting on the top corner of the passenger seat, and then it's only barely touching the driver's seat. I realized that when I came in and looked at the pictures, but its' too hot to want to go back out there and fix it to retake the shot... I had moved those seats forward to give myself more room to work while I was getting them in and only sort of haphazardly put them back, and I know the driver's seat isn't where I normally have it.

    (the center seat does have a shoulder belt, but it's routed around the passenger side headrest - I was able to get the belt tighter that way since it was essentially a more direct route since it actually comes from the passenger side).

    There's no way I could have put an infant seat back there - the radian in the middle only barely fits next to the BV.
