Need a FF seat for second car

I posted about this a while ago when I was first considering it so please forgive me for (sort of) asking again...

We are getting a second seat for DS to put in my DH's vehicle so he can drive him to preschool in the morning and I will be picking him up. I was thinking of the Graco Nautilus since it converts to a booster, we only need FF at this point since DS is 40+ lbs. and the Natuilus is a reasonable price. Any other suggestions...? Would also love suggestions of best places to buy!

Combination seats that I recommend are:

Trendz Eurosport: There are display models in Target stores now and it should be available next month. Harnesses to 50 lbs I believe. I don't know much about booster fit because I have not seen it in action yet.

Evenflo Maestro: Harnesses to 50 lbs and converts to a booster however the booster portion is outgrown around the same time the harness is outgrown

Graco Nautilus: Harness to 65 lbs and converts to a highback booster that fits most kids well. Converts to backless as well

The Recaro ProSport and the Britax Frontier are really nice seats but they are pricy so I would not normally recommend them for a second or limited car use.

Thank you so much!! I think I will go with the Nautilus then. It sounds like it will be perfect for our use. Just needed some confirmation.

Before you run out and buy the Nautilus, they have a new one coming out ... in less on clearance, I prefer the newer stuff. I was looking at it for our mustang as we can't RF easily in there.
