X1 and 2 car seats

I know, just go put them in the car... No I am, tomorrow.

But curious to owners, I'll have a booster for a 5 yr old and an infant 2 weeks old in a rear facing seat.

Is it comfortable over time?...

Threads I read that suggest negotiating say to start at $500 over invoice (bmwconfig).
