Carseat Help!!!

I just came across a GREAT deal on BRITAX carseats. (20-25% off plus an additional 15%) I'm on the hunt for a new seat for Delaney. I thought about just switching her to Miranda's Evenflo Triumph and putting Miranda in a booster but I have done this with ALL of Miranda's things so I want to get Delaney her own big girl seat and keep Miranda in hers as long as possible.

I want your opinon on what BRITAX to get.
Roundabout
Marathon
Boulevard

Does one have more features or what is the big difference in them?

Also, what about design? I am thinking a darker one (onyx) just for the ease of cleaning. Dirol

Here I am asking almost the same ??'s Lauren did not too long ago and thinking about the advice I gave her but the pink-polka dot one is soooooo cute Blum 3

Thanks ladies!! Smile

We have two Boulevards. They are similar to the Marathon but they have side impact protection (more padding) The roundabout is a smaller seat then the Marathon and Boulevard. We really like our Boulevard Smile

Hi Kristin *waves*

So for space wise, the Boulevard is bigger? I will have both girls in the 2nd seat (bench style) in my Windstar so I want to be sure of the fit.

They're all about the same really. The new ones go to 70lbs. Only difference if I remember correctly is that the Blvd had side wings that the Marathon doesn't have. I have Aiden in a Marathon 70. Wider than his infant seat, but takes up a heck of a lot less front to back space rear facing than the infant seat!
All the Britax seats are easy to clean because the covers come off so easily for this purpose. They're all super easy to install. Smile

Laurene, I bought the roundabout pearl one.. I like it alot. It feels more girly to me than boyish in person. It has alot of extras to me.. I had a marathon with ds and I like this one way better than that one. Not sure if they change the models every year but the this one seems to be easier to udjust levels, and the latch attachment is way simplier since all you do is push the button instead of having to squeeze the medel part.

Just noticed you bought it.. Let us know how you like it..

I love a good deal too, we got our carseat for half price. The sale had finished he day before but they hadn't removed the tag yet and I don't think they wanted to argue with the crying pregnant lady who looked like she could go into labour any second (I was 38weeks and it was the day they tried my ECV and it had failed)
