Thinking about getting the cybex alton

Hey mamas. After being dissappointed by the maxi cosi prezi, I'm considering the cybex alton. Seems like everything I'm looking for except the crappy sun shade (can't win 'em all). It's super light like the micro AND goes to 30lbs, which I thought was impossible. Easier install than dare I say the KEYFIT. Really modern looking with awsome color choices and the fabric is suppose to be really soft but non sweaty. It also works with any maxi cosi stroller adaptors. I did read that it makes a rattling notice when empty or with a tiny one and that the harness can get stuck on the splitter plate if you try to adjust the harness while it in the base instead of adjusting before you snap it in. I think I can deal with those annoyances. Does anyone have experience with this seat? Opinions?

Just found a really detailed review of this seat if anyone is interested or considering it. I'm going to go to BuyBuy baby and play with it!

I've heard great things, and would definitely have gotten one for our next baby if I had found a terrific deal! The MSRP is too high for my comfort level, though.

Yeah I agree about the MSRP and I'm trying to hunt down a deal and or use a 20percent off coupon from BuyBuy baby.Plus I'm planning on more than one baby getting use out of it "hopefully". It is darn expensive though and has me rethinking the micro for cost reasons.

If you enjoy stalking websites, you may at some point find a deal on No Better Deal or Wayfair clearance. (I got a Chaperone for <$100!)
