Oh, thanks for telling me that! I only noticed a Britax there several months ago and didn't examine or anything, I just figured they must have them all. My nearly Target is about an hour away too, I'm glad you told me or I would have wasted a trip!
I see they have a good amount of colors/designs.. Can anyone share which one they have or which one they'd like to have? I think I like the plain hunnington.. park way (I think that was the name) was kinda neat too...

Re: Please take my poll on which Britax you like the best..

I have the Park Avenue Boulevard. The annoying thing about the colors is that if you find one you like in one seat, the other style of seat won't have it.

Park Ave BLVD on the left (bear), Cosco Scenera on the right (George). My daughter cares enough to put them in their seats but not enough to buckle them in, lol.

Also while RFing kids have side impact protection but the Blvd has True side impact protection. If I were in a small lower car with my dd out board FFing I ewould get the Blvd. anyways just my Oh if it matters my dd is 2 and still rfing her seat is a last year model which only RF to 33 so I will reevaluate her height when she reaches that weight to see if I can get a seat that will keep her rfing those 2 lbs longer
Ok so if were to buy one in the parkway theme, I could also buy one in the hunnington theme and switch them out, and still be under the warranty, right? I just couldn't get custom made ones that aren't made britax.. right?

Yep you can switch them as much as you like, just use a REAL Britax cover made for your seat! (ie- a BLVD cover on a BLVD, etc)

Yupp.

I just bought my marathon today and already like it. I too was having a hard time choosing until I realized I only really had the choice of the marathon.

Re: Please take my poll on which Britax you like the best..

The Decathalon is out for me because of the LATCH strap. The separate straps on the MA & the BV are what makes them so easy to install tightly.

The "wings" on the BV bug the hell out of my kids when we tested the seats in the store. They couldn't stand them for 3 minutes. There's not way they would stand them in the car. I'm also not a big fan of that whole knob harness adjust thing. I guess if you were gonna have kids sharing a seat, it would be awesome, but I just don't see the need to move the harness up & down that often. Evie's been on the same slots of her Marathon for...hmm...a year, maybe?

So, the Marathon gets my vote of the Britax seats.

But truth be told, if I had to pick a new seat, it wouldn't be a Britax...I'd get another Radian!

We have the Roundabout (I don't think anyone mentioned that one). I really like it. We had to get a compact one b/c the larger ones won't fit RF in my small car. But we are going to get a Frontier for DD so new baby can have the Roundabout. I am really excited about the 80lbs 5-point harness, the TSIP, and the 9 year expiration date! WooHoo! Better yet, MIL might get it for us
