At the moment this is first choice but has mixed reviews so not really decided, open to other suggestions.

I like
the fact there are loads second hand (which I would go for, rather than new), and they hold some value to sell on again
Can change colours
Parent and forward facing
Pram and car seat options
Look decent off road as live in a rural town and do plenty of fields dog walks
I generally like the look of them and they look and feel solid.

Help convince me either way please!

I don't think you'd want to push it in a field. But you could get a baby carrier/sling for that.

Im using mine nearly six months now...
Pros
Looks lovely.
Carrycot is huge, and comfy.
Lovely to push, can steer one handed, turns on a pin.
Extra large hood fantastic in sun.
Adjustable handle was very important for us.
Have used it perfectly fine on country walks(not off off road iykwim)
Light enough to pick up.
Basket is drawstring for keeping important stuff in,

Cons
Huge folded. Takes up whole of my husbands focus and i have to pop a wheel to get into a nissan juke.
Awkward to open.
Basket a nightmare with carrycot on.

Overall am very happy with it. No buggy is perfect loved the joolz but no way would that fit into my car.

The build quality of them is amazing and they go on forever.

I had a cameleon 3. Brought brand new in August 2013 for my new born son.
I did lots of research and was obsessed with owning one. However I wish I hadn't now.
The chassis broke 13months later, got it replaced eventually by bugaboo and sold it when my son was 18months.
I don't drive but when needed to get in cars I found it an absolute pain to fit as needed to fold into two parts and so one part always took up a seat in itself.
It never fitted onto buses.
It was ideal when he was small, as the carrycot was toasty but long term I would not advise it as very difficult once the baby becomes a toddler which comes all too quickly.
I sold mine and got a bee3 and never regretted it for a second.
