2009 BMW M3 Sedan: Kid Duty

May 19, 2009

2009 bmw m3 sedan child seat

I've driven our long-term BMW M3 sedan a couple of times, but haven't had to transport my 3-year-old in it until last weekend. Gave me the opportunity to try out our Recaro child seat in it. Installation was a snap; the grippy Fox Red Novillo leather and firm cushion kept the seat in place really well. I was able to get the seat cinched down tight the very first time, too. Legroom for the kiddie was decent, and the hard plastic seatback on the front passenger seat took the brunt of her dusty shoes after a park trip, then easily wiped clean with a damp cloth when we got home.
