What's the pic of? When I tap I just get connection error on the app. And the thumbnail looks like a label?

ETA: thumbnail has changed now to seat install. ;) I can't see it big though as I still get connection error. Darn app.

Oh cool since you put up 2 pics, I can now tap the second and use the arrows and it will show the first pic.

How quick is it to loosen the tether from the passenger side to get the child in easier and tighten it back up again? I see Britax suggests that as a solution to it being a pain in the arse.

It's probably ok, but I can't install it passenger side because I need DS1 to be able to get out that side for school drop off. I need my RFer driver side.

And they did say passenger side was easier, correct? Same for us though, we need the older one driver side so she doesn't step out into traffic.

Glad you can see the pics... Isn't it pretty? At least it has that going for it!

Yes it is! My middle one would love it. I don't think that pattern comes in a booster though? I see they have a pink cat spot pattern though that I'm sure she'd love so I might be covered.

Yes, passenger side would be easier and technically I *could* reach but seriously what a PITA to do every single time.

The Boulevard cover was amazing! The turquoise one. Do you know what I mean by the bumpy crib sheets? I think they're Oeuf? It feels like those.

So are you keeping yours? Will the tethering drive you bonkers or will you do Swedish style?

I didn't buy it. Just tried it at a local boutique this morning cause the owner wanted to see if it would work. She's royally PO'd that Britax didn't disclose this change to the retailers before she ordered 5 pallets of seats. She's considering dropping the whole line.

Yowza. That's probably why they didn't disclose; feared retailers wouldn't order at all. They should have been working on an ARB instead of new covers for the G4 seats. :p

If I did this and asked DH to load DD3, he'd probably throw the seat down a hill instead. I prefer Britax seats behind the driver since they take up so little room. This has reignited my desire to get a good spot to Swedish style tether on that side though. I have a good spot on the passenger side but not drivers side.

Many vehicle manufacturers are now saying not to swedish tether in their vehicles. May want to look into that.
