I'm pretty sure Simpson makes one. Pretty spendy though ...

Simpson does make one and it ownz joo! ~$150



The Recaro model is suitable for many, many years of use. From 18 months to age 9. I have been told that with "baby seats", you will replace them every year or two anyway due to them getting funky. This may be a reason not to get the $$$ Recaro model. Something to think about anyway.

These are the only two racing looking car seats that I know of.

they all look pretty racy. we have the alpha/omega made by cosco it is very good. worth every penny. it can be used as infant all the way through to belt positioning booster seat. my daughter is very comfortable in it and it looks cool.

the recaro one would be very cool though. and if the seat cover is removable. it is just fine for long term use. but it looks like it is for oldr kids.

Graco makes one called the Turbobooster.



The material almost matches exactly and it is significantly cheaper than Recaro or Simpson.

I like that one too! Everytime passing thru at Target, I've checked them out. Now I just need the kids and I can go get one...

This Britax model looks like it would match an STI interior pretty well...though it is denim, not leather.

What age is the child?

Britex is probably the best in terms of build and safety according to my experience and research. Most of those pictured here, if not all from first glance, are booster seats and would not be applicable until a child is at least 30lbs iirc.

i have a britax in my wagon, and compared to the two other brands i've used, i would buy nothing buy britax....looks cool and matches the 04 wrx interior perfect. that recaro seat is a booster and for kids a little older. sparco also has/had one like the recaro but its really rare ,not sure if they even have it anymore.
