    My new 3-across with the S4M :)

    It WORKED! It WORKED!

    And much better than I thought it ever would. Its not very tight on the cruz side. They seem to puzzle perfectly. When the highback goes up another click then it will fit even better on that side.

    AND DS has more room in the S4M than the radian. I also love how there is going to be more "separation" between the kids with DS2 sitting up higher.

    The buckle is very much like the one on the maestro. Its not my favorite but its not my least favorite either.

    This makes me want to hold onto my S4M for when I downsize my van back to a sedan.

    I like how your seats not only match each other, but match your interior

    I am sooooo happy it worked so well for you! And that is a great amount of growing room!

    Does C fit? I would be interested to know if she has any room in it at all.

    Yay, so glad my prediction wasn't totally off. Might want to try a Cosco Stack It instead of a cruz, that's our new fave cheapo booster for ease of buckling and awesome cupholderness. Of course, we do love our Cruz...just sayin'... (me? enable a random unnecessary carseat purchase? never!)

    Thank you! After years of wanting the brightest seats, I have found a love of grey and black, LOL.

    Yes, she does but then you remember that she has the shortest torso ever.

    I have found that backless boosters are addictive to collect...I have six now so you don't have to push much, LOL. I will have to keep my eyes open for one.

    I am going to keep my radian:

    -the radian in DH's car means that DD can use her HB Turbo in it and since I am going to be driving his car more in about 8 months I want her in a HB there and don't really want to buy any of the HBs on the market now.
    -I am having no problems with my maestro or S4M buckles now but if I do then I would want something narrow in reserve
    -It will be hard to find another SK radian and I am not a big fan of the diona ones and they are not as narrow
    -Its more expensive to ship carseats than it used to be and USPS is raising there prices again in 1-2 weeks
    -I have family that would be thrilled to get a hand me down seat in a couple of years
