    Not without knowing what the DOM is.

    You never know it could be a new seat that has been sitting in someone's garage for the last 4yrs Can you ask the DOM or wait until the Britax sale in Feb?

    Re: Would you buy this???

    When was the BLVD introduced? I'm thinking 2-3 years ago, but I may be way off. There were still Wizards being sold in 2005 and it replaced those.

    Equally importantly- do you know the history of the seat? If it is brand new, why is it being sold at that price? Is it only age? Who is selling it that you cant find out the DOM?

    In your location, I'd consider it. If it has been less than 3 years since they were introduced, then that's up to half its lifespan. It's around halfprice, so I think it's fair enough.

    New in box? I didn't think Boulevards were that old? When did they come out?
    I'd buy it maybe.

    Re: Would you buy this???

    Ive sent them an email to ask why its been sold so cheap..ie age.so all i have to do now is wait for their answer.

    USmominAU...i remember seeing in previous posts that shes thinking of bringing over a seat already when she returns to the states...so she'll have too much to worry about..

    this is why it seems like a great buy at a great price..

    BTW.. its not for me (though i wish it was..."were trying for no.3"))its for a very close girlfriend who cant afford to buy a new seat for her newest baby due in a couple of months.

    Could you wait for the britax sale, see what the prices are and then decide?
    Could she pay shipping and you pay for the seat? When is she due?

    We are going to AU later this year if shipping to NZ works out cheaper, we will be in QLD and NSW.

    Mind you AU only requires under 12 months to be in a car seat, or is that some states only? Is it being changed? They want kids in boosters here until 12 yrs or 148cm, same as UK.
