As for protection, I got those lion heart full seat protection. Folks on the forum have also recommended to add a cloth underneath for add protection.

U'll have a blast! My 3 year old was saying "wee!" at age two whenever we go on an on ramp. : )
OP. Congrats on the new car and the switch. I moved from a 535 M sport to my current E90 M3.

There are a few threads on car seats that provide a wealth of information. I never had rear facing seats in my E90, but I do know it's a pretty tight fit in the left or right position. I'm sure you already know the middle is the safest position, and the seat will fit just fine.

I use a Sunshine Kids RadianXT and Britax Frontier, like UNivek. I've also had a Recaro Pro-Sport in the car. Best all-round seat for me was the Recaro, followed closely by the Britax. The Sunshine Kids is great for it's compact size and foldability for travel though. Too bad Recaro's aren't certified in Canada as of yet.

Have fun!

Thanks Chowster. I will look into the threads; I seen some posts on Child-seats. We are probably going with a product from Safety 1st Onboard Air. Also I didnt realize the middle seat position was actually the safest.

I finally had the courage to post a picture of the car. Taken on the i4s

What are those three M stripes on the front left kidney grill??? Vinyl wrap? Never seen it before. Cool.

It's stripe decals which are made of high quality vinyl that is guaranteed for a year on your vehicle. $20 bucks and foreach strip you have 5 different widths to play with. I couldn't imagine it on any other colour than Alpine White.

I was inspired by M3 GTR back into the ALMS. The 3 Stripe here is great for a track but not so much on the street. So I thought the grill was subtle
