Read your car manual for installing the top tethers; I installed mine with a kit from Subaru- $20.00.
Thanks for the discussion on top slots; it's interesting.
Also, I noticed the Regent IRL at BRU and Babyuniverse; it was great! It is a big seat but it's nice. The little things that make the Britaxes nice add up and then you get a little spoiled. :
I can't believe BRU wouldn't sell you your seat! How frustrating!

Just my .02
I had a regent and did not care for it much. I sold it to a friend and she likes it. I bought 2 recaros and LOVE them. They are much more narrow. No, they don't harness to 80 pounds. Frankly, I wouldn't force an 80 pound person to be in a 5 pt harness. My daughter could use the 5 pt harness until she was 6. She still has tons of height room at nearly 8 years old. That said, I don't remember if it's even cheaper than the regent. Quality wise, I think recaro seats are just nicer.
