Car = 2010 Lexus RX400h (it's the hybrid version, but I think it's the same size as the others).
 

Kid 1 - FF in harnessed Frontier.  She can technically be in a booster, but I prefer the harness.

Kid 2 - RF in Complete Air. 

Kid 3 (due 1/2012) - Would like to start with a SR so I can pop it in and out quickly while it's still cold out.

 

I tried this combo with the two oldest outboard and belted in, but I can't wedge the SR between them so there's no way to get to the belt.

 

I tried a Radian back when Kid 2 was an infant, but the recline would leave the passenger seat unusable (plus it was a nightmare to install!).

 

Basically, I'm looking for ideas for uber narrow seats for my kids, but I want them to last (for the record, both Kid 1 and Kid 2 are 100%/100% so I need something that can accommodate their body sizes).  OR I just want someone to tell me that this car is not 3 across friendly so I can just resign myself to getting a minivan...

 

Thanks!

Thanks for responding, Dahlia.

 

It appeared that my stress level was approaching an all-time high and my husband went out and bought a minivan to alleviate some of it.  No more worries about car seats!

Good!  I LOVE my minivan.  Much easier with 3 kids and lots of room to haul stuff!
