    Online dealers ARE Brick and mortar stores.... So there is no difference.

    I would technically be an "online dealer" since I sell them online, but the owner of Baby on the Go also has a Brick and Mortar store. Most all Companies require a dealer to have a Brick and Mortar store.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    I really just wanted to see them... I don't know why he is getting them that late but he claims to have just gotten off the phone with Recaro about it. If I was actually going to buy one of course I'd go through LovinWaves.

    Some vehicles have rear-facing tethering hooks, therefore you don't need to use the d-ring extender

    yes, but VERY few cars have RFTA's... some GMs, a couple fords, and some volvos are all that i know of.

    Yes of course, but I was letting the PP know that there ARE some vehicles that have specific rear-facing tethering hooks.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    I can't wait to see one in person and play with it and try to justify why I need a 4th carseat for my one child.

    Since SK allows the use of Britax chest clip, I wonder if Recaro would allow the use of a Britax Versa tether. I just so happen to have an extra one. Probably premature to ask that.

    I absolutely love the Blush cover. It makes me want to have a girl. I normally do not like "girly" covers as they are too foofy for my taste, but the Blush is not over done in my opinion. It is like femimine/sporty.

    highly doubtful. a chest clip is a standalone piece that is not part of the carseat. the versatether is designed to attach to two points on the britax shell. all other carseats have one center attachment point for the top tether. so there's probably no way that you could use a versatether with anything other than a britax.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    ok, what stinks is that recaro seemed to keep saying they could be tethered rf, at least that is what I found in my research before deciding to order a como. I do have a spare britax d-ring - that is all that would be needed, right? you wouldn't need the entire britax tether.

    But I would be very hesitant to tether against the manufacturers instructions.

    I have one como on pre-order (from lovinwaves), planned to order a second once I was certain I would like it. But I want my daughter tethered rf, so will just go with another BV, and use the Como for my 3 year old son who is already ff. I guess my dh was right to discourage me from ordering the adorable Blush color, and getting something that would work with both kiddos instead

    I am still excited about the como, but bummed about tethering rf. This will really keep them from fully competing with Britax, in my opinion (but what do I know, I am generally just a lurker!)

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    IMHO, if (and that's a big IF) recaro doesn't supply a D-loop for RF tethering, yet they will allow RF tethering, then there's nothing stopping you from using a britax D-loop. this is my reasoning: there is neither federal regulation nor even loose standards for what constitutes an RF tether anchor. it can be any old piece of metal under the seat that YOU as teh parent find to be acceptable (regardless of whether it's ACTUALLY safe IRL). without any such standard, you are free to create your own anchor point which you feel to be safe. if that means using the britax D-loop, then so be it. i don't see how that could be frowned upon from an "official" stance.

    I'm glad to hear/read this. I don't know how tethering a Recaro seat with the D-loop would be any different than tethering a Britax seat with the same loop. I have a great spot to tether to in my car in the outboard positions, but need a D-loop for the center seat. Right now I have my DD2's Britax seat tethered using the D-loop from DD1's Radian, and I'm very comfortable doing that since both seats use tethers made my IMMI, so they are the same thing.

    Re: When is the Recaro Como shipping?

    As of right now Recaro will not be supplying a D-ring.

    I will be using my extra Britax D-ring for my new Recaro's. It is no different to me.

    All D-ring is to me is an extension of the Tether. Since Recaro allows rf'ing tether I have no problems using my Radian's or Britax's.

    When I spoke to Recaro about it, she did not say I couldn't use it.

    I have a cobalt coming from you, wish I didn't know Blush was still available I intended the como for Susanna originally, but with the 19 inch top slots, DH was thinking our son might end up with it eventually, hence Cobalt instead of blush.

    I have no idea why I am so into girly carseats all of a sudden. They are just so darn cute, as cute as the pink Maclarens!

    Will all the pre-orders be on this 1st shipment? I am just so excited. Also was wondering if you happen to have an extra midnight desert. I am just waiting to get the blush before I decide on a Como or Regent for DS.

    Umm, actually, you are not supposed to top tether any seat rfing in Volvos. The have a system called WHIPS in the front seats that is incompatible. The Swedish seats made use the exhisting hooks are different than the US ones.
