    please help me fit 3 across - 2011 BMW X5

    a little background....
    i have twin 2.5 year olds. they will be 3 in may
    we have a newborn coming any day now.

    i have a 2011 BMW X5 and we can't fit our chicco key fit 30 and two britax roundabout 50's in the 2nd row. all three seats are crooked and i don't think it's safe. our twins ride FF in the car, as well.

    i have a 3rd row and we attempted to put a seat back there but i wasn't sure if it was 'safe' or if it was permitted. i read somewhere on here no carseats should go in the 3rd row.

    it was suggested to purchase either two radians (not sure which ones to get) or two max cosi priori's.

    any advice? i hate to ditch my britax seats because the radians seem very 'straight' and they don't look comfy. maybe I'm wrong? i'd also like to get the new baby the same car seat when she moves from the infant carrier to a convertible car seat.

    Were your threads from last year not answered well?



    Both with answers. And they had been merged from multiple threads from last year. And I deleted duplicates this week as well.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. I believe this one has been answered.
