Does anyone know if it is possible to get the integrated booster seats for a '04 S80? I haven't been able to find any online and my dealer says that they were a factory installed option only, and that it'd be insanely pricey to buy the replacement parts. Any leads?

mainly because the kids are only in the car occasionally and it's nice not to have to move the booster seat out of another vehicle or store it.

I agree with Skywriter, I've got 3, ages 8 down to 1 1/2. There are two types of booster seats, those with hardbacks and those w/out. The one's w/hardbacks have guides so that the seatbelt is properly alligned across their chest and not their neck. We've got one, where the back part stores in the base, rotates in plane with the seat and then slides into the base, and it takes up no room whatsoever and it was 40 bucks? I'd take that $ you''re looking to spend and put into a decent upgrade but ultimately it's your choice.
