This is why I recommend the Cybex Aton 2. It's small enough to have someone of normal adult female size in the passenger's seat with room to spare. I rode 4 hours in the passenger's seat with the Cybex in the back when we went to Florida, and I'm 6 2". Not at all uncomfortable for me, but I normally sit very close.

Most performance mods need a watch and timed course to demonstrate actual improvement. Few deliver the advertised claims. Many are actually worse than stock. The best performance mods are made to the driver.

Emotional arguments - They're not just for chicks anymore.

I have young twin infants and they have rear facing seats. After a test fitting at babiesRus I found that the seats with a base gave me a bit more room. I am 6'3" so every little bit helps. I even attempted to remove the cushion portion of my rear seats and found that the lower position made it worse. I love the F so it's worth the wait until they are in forward facing seats. I'm am sitting rather close but it's for "short" trips. I find it's easier to slouch in my seat to fit better, although if my airbag went of I may blow up. But my kids will be safe��.

I too had a Graco but something to consider is using one of those pool noodles (you know the long floating devices kids either try to ride or blow water through) and cut it down to size and place under the rear of the seat. This will help compensate for the sloped angle of the bucket seats.

For the Recaro I got a pool noodle and still had to wrap it with a towel to get the base level. The buckets in the back are deep.

Sorry for the thread revival, but wife and I are expecting twins in October. We are going to get the cybex aton / aton 2 and a couple extra bases. Any suggestions from those of you that used these?

I opted for the Cybex Aton 2 when he was an infant. The Aton 2 is for babies 4 lbs. to 35 lbs. and up to 30" tall. Unfortunately, he was too tall at 6 months, but most people won't have that problem. The Aton is also the shortest front to back so it fits and leaves a lot of room for adult sitting in front. If you sit like I do with your knees almost on the dash (racecar driver style), you'll never know it's there. Best of all, it's one of the lightest seats available. Some of them are horribly heavy.

I got the Recaro for him once he was too big for the Cybex. I have to agree, ingress and egress are no picnic. But again, if you want to use the LATCH system, it is one of the lighter models and offers pretty impressive side impact protection. I'll be happier when he's big enough to face forward.

I got Cybex Aton 2 Infant Car Seat right now. What Recaro is that and whats the limits on it?

I didn't see the Diono Rainier or Radian mentioned so thought I would add this. It's a fully convertible option that covers from 5 to 120 lbs. I currently have it rear facing for my one year old. When used with the available "angle adjuster" from Diono it fits great for such a highly engineered seat. Plus the blue looks like it was made for the F!

I'm 5'11 and still fit somewhat comfortably. Not a problem at all for my wife.

It is the "Angle Adjuster" Diono sells separately. It is designed to to provide a more upright angle of the car seat in rear facing installation. Basically does the same thing as the pool noodle trick you might hear others talking about. This also gives more room for the front seat to come further back. It's a must have in the ISF if you want to be able to use the passenger seat.

i really like the aton seats we used an aton for our second one. the seat fits well, and when installed behind the driver's seat, i had just enough knee room to drive the car comfortably (i'm 6' height).
