I have b smart 3 not 4, I really like it!
The basket is really big, though not particularly deep, saying that I've never lost any of the contents so it works well enough.
It only folds with seat forward facing, but it is so easy to click the seat on and off so it really has never been a problem for me.
It's really light to push and easy to manoeuvre. The seat unit is spacious and nicely padded and the big hood is great for keeping sun off LO. I researched loads before buying mine and it was the best I could find in my budget. LO sleeps soundly in it so I'm glad I choose it! HTH!

thank you, i do really like it, it looks lovely in purple with the black frame and boots have it on offer, kiddicare is a few pound cheaper but i will get £30 worth of points from boots so works out a better deal. will have to wait until later in the week though before i can order it so i hope the offer is still on and in stock grin

I bought mine from boots too! The points came in handy nearer the birth when I was stocking up on nappies and wipes! The purple with black frame is really nice. Only one thing I thought to mention, do you have a car, if so how big is the boot? It's quite large folded, I just get it in the boot of my car!

i can not drive, so walk everywhere but family car is a galaxy so not a chance of it fitting, but we keep an old phil and teds in the car as it fits perfectly, although hardly go anywhere in the car anyway, is it good on grass or is it only for paths. many thanks grin

As I said earlier mine is the three wheel version so not sure about the 4 wheel, but mine works great on paths, cobbles, grass and sand! The main reason I chose it was as 99% of the time I walk everywhere and it has a good suspension and copes well with all terrain in my experience! Also last winter in the snow I saw mums having no trouble pushing it, where others were completely stuck! HTH.

it would only be grass, as the school run cuts across the local green, grin might even pay for next day delivery as it is so much easier if you know when it is turning up and it means i will get it quicker grin

really like the look of the britax b smart but was just wondering whether the carrycot for the old britax vigour fits onto the new frame. Have been offered one but can't see anywhere if the accessories are interchangeable between the two models.

justkeepsmiling I believe that the b smart carrycot will fit the older vigour+ model so it stands to reason that if it's a vigour+ carrycot you've been offered then it should fit! HTH!
