Booster Seat (bottom only) that fits F10 5 Series

Hello Guys,

I just bought a Clek Olli booster seat bottom only for the 2012 528i. It fits the two latching in the back of the seat just fine. However, the seatbelt is impossible to buckle up as the seatbelt receptor is flush (buried in) with the back seat. The Clek Olli's handrest stand has an angle which blocks the BMW seatbelt buckle from inserting to the seatbelt receptor. Does anyone have the same issue? Can anyone suggest a booster seat base only brand/model (pix would be great) that fits the F10 rear seat with easy seabelt buckle access? Thank you for your help.

Dave

This has been an issue with our Greco booster base only. Sits flush on the seat belt receptacle. My daughter just twists the seat around to buckle and then wiggle it back into position. The only negative its that I cannot put down anything to protect the leather. Major pain in the a$$.

I hope someone finds the right seat my sons seat is a pain to buckle in my BMW and Mustang, But in our 1996 520I Euro spec the back seat seatbelt buckles on the side by the door and it is easy for him to buckle himself.

My kids are only 2 so I don't use the booster only, but this seat is fantastic and will convert for me, and it fits my F10 like a glove:

There is another model that is booster only:

Good luck!

I purchased the seat belt extenders they work perfect. Just make sure you get the right ones to fit. Good luck.

I second this. I got this and it works great. Very easy to buckle and unbuckle, and also keeps the seat from sliding sideways.
