    I put one of these recaro booster seats in the backseat for my 4 year old daughter: http://www.amazon.com/RECARO-Performance-BOOSTER-Booster-Sapphire/dp/B00E6URANU/ref=sr_1_cc_1_a_it?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1459847007&sr=1-1-catcorr&keywords=recaro+booster

    works great but i notice the top part of the seat rests against the headrest which over time will cause some compression.
    I have a car seat protector in the car but it starts below the actual headrest and I can't seem to find anything that protects the headrest itself.

    Does anyone else have this issue -- and if so -- did you find a solution?

    Thanks.

    I just put a Graco AFFIX Highback in my 2015 Model S with NextGen seats. With the forward leaning non-adjustable headrests, the highback booster does not set flush against the back of the Tesla seat. This is a much bigger issue than compression of the headrest over time. For the child to be safe, the seat, just as the occupant, needs to be flush against the back of the seat.
