Britax Car Seat Advice

My 4 month old has outgrown his carrier seat. He's 27 inches already! I'm looking into carseats and it looks like the Britax seats are the way to go.

It seems like prior posts are when to move a big 3 year old to a booster, my problem is opposite. My daughter is still in the Britax Marathon! Since she will be 8 in July and CA law is booster seat until 8, I want to dump the Marathons for her as she has been begging each time she rides with a friend in a backless booster. We used one in Hawaii and she realized she couldn't fall asleep comfortably and stopped asking. But now it is time, she is only 50lbs and about 46-47 inches. My problem is picking the right one.
