We bought the Recaro YS at the end of last year (2008) we got in the black with velour material which my daughter loves to run her hand along! Its from ages 9 months to 11 yrs so no more changing car seats!
My daughter was about 19 months when we got it so the inner seat cushion had to be taken out for her to fit. Its very easy to take this cushion in and out as it has poppers at the back and you just have to take the seatbelt clip in or out of the slit in cushion.
The back has 3 adjustable heights for the shoulder straps and at 2yrs now she is on the middle setting. The harness is very easy to do up/undo and is easily tightend of loosend.
When the child is old enough to not need the harness it converts into being used with the seat belt strapping them in. Haven't got to that stage yet so can't comment on it.
It doesn't recline like other seats. It does have a recline option but its not very noticeable. I leave mine in the recline position and if she's awake its still upright enough for her to see out and if she falls asleep it has just enough recline to stop her head falling about. The side head wings are great for stopping that. I believe that once the seat is strapped in the recline can't be adjusted. It is reclined by a turing knob at the side.
Overall I can't fault this seat at all. My daughter loves it and it comes in many different colours and materials. The covers can be changed as well if you have another baby of the opposite sex. Once the seat is in the car it feels very secure and doesn't move at all and its very easy to put in. We have two now for each car.
Summary: get this seat if you want your little one to be safe, comfortable and stylish!
