Hi, just wondered if you have and advice about my decision, I'm torn between buying a silver cross sleepover system and mamas and papas ultima! Anybody got either of these? Would love to know what you think. Looking to buy in about 8 weeks, looked at both and lots of research, but now I'm torn, help!!!!

Honestly, don't buy either! They are both enormous folded, heavy, and awful to push once your baby is past the newborn stage and getting heavier. I've yet to see anyone pushing one of these with a baby over 6 months in it, which tells you a lot I think.
If you are really set on one or the other, go for the silver cross, at least they will fix it if there is a problem under the warranty, mamas and papas will try every trick in the book to avoid admitting liability for the fault and their stuff is generally not the quality you would expect for the enormous price tag!

The only classic prams I have seen people using regularly past 6months ish is bebecar ones, the stylo mostly as it is a lot smaller and narrower and the front wheels turn (i think, they don't swivel but they steer iyswim)

This may depend where you live though as to how long they are used for, a lot of places they become impractical fairly quickly.

I also wouldnt buy either. These are exactly the type of pushchair people spend hundreds on, only to ditch them for a smaller stroller later on. There are FAR more practical pushchairs out there TBH.
