Video Description

Learn how to install a car seat in your 2012 BMW 550i xDrive. Regardless of whether your make has the latch system or the seat belt attachment method, this video shows how to tether a baby seat or a booster seat to the rear seats. In addition this video shows how to connect rear facing infant car seats, rear facing toddler car seats, forward facing child seats and booster with latch seats. The connection point to your 2012 550i xDrive is then same regardless of what car seat is chosen. Note that most rear facing car seats do not utilize the center anchor point to connect the car seat but rely on the two lower anchor points exclusively. The center anchor point is typically only used for forward facing car seats. You should always defer to the owners manual for your specific car seat for size determinations and front vs rear facing recommendations.

Determining whether your child should be front facing or rear facing in your 2012 BMW 550i xDrive is dependent on the height and weight of your child and the specific car seat model. The rear facing position is safest and children should remain rear facing as long as possible. It is imperative that newborns are always rear facing.
