    4stars, meridian ahr forward facing.

    New bub's capsule isn't on there - maxi Cosi mico. I've heard it got goof ratings overseas, but that's probably based on a Isofix system, so not directly comparable.

    The old seat (Meridian AHR Tilt and Adjust) 4*, new Seat is the Maxi Rider. I chose 3* on the poll, but it's not been tested yet, and from what I read before buying it, they have made it safer, so hopefully that will get 4/5* next year.

    4 Stars for all 3 seats - Meridian AHR x 2 (1 FF, 1RF) and Hi Liner SG

    We did have the Maxi Rider AHR but due to safety rating went and bought the Hi Liner a couple of months back for DS1.

    4 stars, 3 stars and 2 stars - all safe n sound seats. The seat that rated 2 stars is 6 years old, so was planning on replacing it next year anyway but definitely will be now.

    RF -3/3 stars FF - 2/3 stars - SnS Compaq deluxe, the cheaper version of the seat scores better

    Considering they were the only seats i had an option of & bought them 2 years ago, not bad.

    New seats are 4/3 - Baby Love Ezy combo.

    4 stars for hiliner, 3 for maxi ahr, 2 for maxi non-ahr
    Ds is almost at the limit for the maxi so I think he will be into the other hiliner with asc... But I still feel safer with him in the built in harness. I wonder what is safer, 2 stars Ina built in harness or 4 stars in a normal seat belt? Wait the stars would mean the same across the categories wouldn't they? Might go and re read it I think.
