I just got an infasecure evolve on sale for my boy. He will be harnessed till 8 in it! The hipod Manhattan looks good too! Both type G seats so harness till large 8 year old.

SNS encore 10 is the biggest booster. What's her seated height? (measured as bum-shoulder when sitting against a wall). Type G restraints harness until seated height of 51cm.

Goodness your DD must have a really long torso if she's already outgrown a type g seat at 5! I think the next biggest is an encore 10? So that would be your next option, or getting a special exemption to import a seat from overseas.

She is 123cm tall but has a big bottom (kardashian style) so it boosts her up more. She does still fit but there isn't much left in the strap excess, only a couple of cms, and it's really hard to tighten. She can loosen it off herself too (even though I tell her not to!!) so I think a big girls seat belt would be safer.
Plus there's this... God doing up that buckle in the thigh area sucks. It was ok during winter but during summer she flinches assuming I'm going to hurt her.
Thanks everyone, will check out the encore! I would have loved to have kept her in a harness longer (mainly because I have 3 car seats across ).

Omg they're so expensive... Over $300. Will need to have a think. First I bought the meridian, then thr maxirider, then when she outgrew that and I would have had to gone to booster seat mode at 2 I bought the Rallye. Then the Evolve. All before 5. It's a lot of money when you're buying for 3 cars! (My parents and sister do a lot of pick ups and drop offs as I'm a solo mum working full time)
