I am so darn excited!!!!!!!!! S was getting car sick so this was my only option. I had no issues with the install at all, just had to twist the buckle stalk 2 times so i wanted to post in case anyone needed to know what will install in a Subaru forester 2010 center postion! I wish I could try a 3 across just for fun but I only have a nauti and FR85 and neither of those are going to fit! We have taken 4 trips in it so far and no loosening or any issues!

I am glad to hear you were able to get the radian installed in the middle of the Forester.

In that second picture, it looks like the other seat's buckle is hidden behind the one you are using for the radian. How easy is it to still access that buckle?

Yes I'm interested as well - BTW I got the radian in ff and rf in 2006 Forester with Cryssy (and I'm about to retry rf today and then prob ff too)

What Booster is it and how hard to buckle? (part of my 3 across issue)

YOu know, I haven't tried:p I will go out and try it. When I installed the radian, I honestly paid no attention to it because we never have another passenger so you may be able to pull it out of the way. i will try it after we go get the girls their Easter shoes

It is a Graco turbo booster. Our cybex x-fix wouldn't fit. It is very difficult to buckle. Unfortunately we have to do it for DD. She gets in and DH has to pull her towards the door a little off the seat to buckle and then slide her back. Definitely not hard for him or I but no way DD could get her hand between the booster and the radian to do it herself. The only time its a real pain is the car line at school because DH has to park instead since DD can't let herself in and out.
