Has anyone been able to fit 2 carseats & a booster in their X5?

Specifically, a infant seat (for a newborn), a convertible car seat (1y.o.) & a booster (5y.o.)? I'd need to fit 2 convertibles in about a yr...

I'd like to get the third row & let my 5y.o. sit back their occasionally but would like to be able to fit all 3 in the 2nd row for longer trips...

Depending on the seats you have it may be possible. I could not do it with the seats that I have.

I would take this question to the car-seat.org boards - if nobody has done it in an X5, they can surely tell you what car seats/boosters puzzle well together and tend to fit three across.

I have two Frontier 85s in the outboard seats and there is no way I could fit a booster in the middle, but surely there are smaller seats that would work.

Mein Auto: 2008 X5
in our old 2001 x5 (which we have since sold) we were able to get three booster seats side-by-side in the rear seat. it takes some wrangling to get all three kids buckled in, but it did work. i dont know if we would be able to get two baby car seats and a booster seat side by side. however, as i recall, the newer x5's are a little wider than the older ones. probably by an inch or so? i could be wrong, though.
