Light (and cheap!) buggy for in/out car use that can fit maxi-cosi?

Am expecting DC3. I already have a P&T but with SPD and a rubbish back, I only use it to and from the house. In the car I have a Maclaren, which I love.

When DC3 is born, I need a very light buggy that is easy for me to lift etc that can do the following:

1. Clip a maxi cosi car seat on (which the Maclaren won't)
2. Lie the baby flat.
2. Enable a buggy board for DC2 (who will be 20 months)

I really don't want to spend a fortune, as this will only be a solution for about 6 months when I can return to the use of the Maclaren!

Any ideas, please!?

Baby Jogger City Mini - although with a car seat on, you would be better with the 4 wheeler version which would cost more. But if you are very careful the three wheeler would do (we survived but it's a bit tippy). Failing that an old second hand Bugaboo? Chameleon or Gecko for example? You will get your money back later on either. I used a Quinny Zapp chassis too for the car seat but I don't think it will take a buggy board and i would be hesitant to recommend the Xtra seat if you are switching between the two modes as the adaptors are very easy to lose and cost circa £30 to replace.. Also the fold / open isn't easy never mind with a bad back!

You could get a Micralite with a carrycot and the Micralite Rider.

What about a Britax B-Mobile or B-Agile? Then you can use the maxi cosi adapters for a babystyle oyster which apparently also fit the britax models. I'm about to get some adapters for my oyster so I can try them on my sister's B-Mobile if you want.

A friend of a friend used a zapp with buggy board and the weight bent the chassis!
