If I like the Maxi Cosi Mura 3, what else might I like?

I've got quite a list of requirements in a buggy. They are:
- it mus be compatible with the Maxi Cosi cabriofix carseat and dreami carrycot I already have
- it must have 3 big, sturdy off road wheels
- it must have a big seat that will be suitable to age 3
- it must be parent facing and forward facing and recline in both modes
- it must not cost more than £300
- it must have a nice big hood
- size and weight not important
- it must have a single handlebar and a reasonable sized basket

So far I've found the Maxi Cosi mura 3 which fits the bill. Does anyone know of, or can recommend any other options I should look at before I buy one ?

I think your limiting factor is the "dreami carrycot".
This only fits a couple of pushchairs. If you are prepared to sell this, and then consider other pushchairs, you will get some answers and options.

The mura was one of the heaviest and awkward prams I har ever pushed. Wouldn't recommend at all

I have only got £300, which will stretch to a new pushchair but not a new car seat - I am happy to sell and replace the carrycot with a second hand one, but would want a new carseat which means I would be reduced to around £200 for a new pushchair or buy second hand.
I have previously owned a Quinny Speedi, which I loved in general but which had several factors I hated (tiny hood, forward facing only, didn't sit fully upright) and used a graco travel system which was cheap and nasty, and an oBaby Zezu, which I wasn't't keen on due to having small wheels at the front and generally feeling poor quality.
I've had a go with the Mura, and quite liked it, it was no more awkward than my Speedi, though a bit heavier, though as I've said weight and size aren't too much of an issue - it will never go on public transport, I live in the country and drive a land rover, and I have a large boot room in the house to store it in so it will remain folded most of the time. I wish there were more options! Thanks for the replies.

Remain UNfolded I mean. Doh.
