Lurking from baby board ... I know you guys are carseat experts! :)

Some of you may remember, I posted about 2 months ago about getting a new Britax carseat. Well, we're finally doing it, now that DD is pushing the limits on her infant seat.

I can get the Marathon for a total of $220, in the "racer" style, (which is black/gray.)

Or, I can get the Roundabout for $210, in the "cowmooflage" style, which I looooove.

(Or, Diplomat for $240 in "cowmooflage," is another option.)

What would you do? As far as the weight limits go, I think it will be quite awhile before my DD (8 months old and about 17 pounds,) hits 40 lbs. Oh, and we have a Honda CRV (a small SUV.)

I'm leaning towards the Roundabout, just because I love the print. Is that really lame? I mean, they're all the same safety-wise, right?

I voted for the Diplomat. It has the side-impact safety stuff, like the Boulevard(which we have). I don't know how much safer it actually is(I know they all have to meet certain standards!), but it makes me feel better! :wink:

I voted Diplomat. We have one and love it! :D

We have the Taylor design. They didn't have the cow one when we got it.

I think the roundabout is better for smaller cars. I have the marathon and i have it in the cowmooflage. I got it off of e-bay.

I voted for the Diplomat. I have that one and I like it b/c it's a bit smaller (even in my SUV) and it has the side impact protection.
