    which Britax?

    BRU closing sale still has some Britax. Looking for Gma seat for use just several times a year. They had a Blvd. for $227, Advocate for $263, and Marathon for $203. Those prices seemed a bit high, but I think may have just come down another 10%. Having a seat with no thread harness is very important. I expect any of these will be the last seat to buy before booster. When GD gets to that point, brother will be ready for this seat anyway. Purchasing for first grandchild - more to surely follow. Currently own infant seat and Coccoro. DD uses Graco 4Ever now, and they really like it. Wondering if the deals really aren't worth it and if I should just get a less expensive seat.

    These prices are for the ClickTight seats? I would probably go with the Boulevard because it has the headwings without the extra width the Advocate has outside the shell. That way you might have more flexibility if you need multiple seats in your vehicle in the future.

    The Boulevard will last longer height wise than the Marathon. Stats and age of child in question? Have you shopped around? Those prices don't seem fantastic.
