car seat shopping help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm looking to get DD1 a new seat for my parent's car. The car is a 1997 BMW 5-searies, no latch or top tether.

 

she's 4 yrs old, about 38" and 28-30lbs depending on what she's wearing. I need to keep cost around or under $100 if i can. I would like the seat to last until she's about 8. I also need the car seat to be lightweight for traveling. basically it's going to be a backup seat used about 1-3 times a week.

 

Right now, she's in a combi and has about 1/2" before her shoulders are at the strap where it will be out grown-long legs and skinny. we also have a britax (i think boulevard- only goes to 40lbs and 40") she still has a little room in. the britax is currently in my parent's car, but i want to use it for DD2 RF.

 

any suggestions?

The Maestro is an excellent suggestion.   IT sounds like you have a Diplomat, not a Boulevard, in your parent's car.
