    I have one and love it, easy to manoeuvre, fold and unfold. I didn't bother with the bassinet attachment as it lays almost completely flat, I just got a head support insert to provide the support he needed as a newborn. He loves having the back open so he can look through the mesh at me

    Only major down side is it could tip easy, you can't have a bag hanging on the back, even holding a shopping bag in my hand and holding the handle the pram starts to tip. I'm very use to it now but it can be frustrating.

    One last down side would be there isn't as much versatility with how you can position the pram like you can with other types

    Yep, we've got one for 6 week old DS.

    Love love love the fold mechanism. I can fold and lift it into my boot one handed.
    It is also nice and compact. I drive a Corolla so lots of prams are too big for my boot.
    Love adjustable height handle, DH and I are tall so found we were stooping a bit to push some pram models.
    Good tyres, better than the City Mini model.

    As pp mentioned you really can't hang things on the handle, I think it would tip back, but that doesn't bother me, I never go to hang things there.

    We also use a newborn headrest thing, and I have just ordered an insert from Mini Happy Me to make it 'snugglier' as I think it is a bit spacious inside for a newborn.
    That could be all prams though? DS is my first.

    Overall very happy, glad we got the GT and not just the Mini.

    ooh thanks ladies I used to have just a regular mini and sold it but it was years ago.. and wanted to see how much the GT is better. I have to admit, I do love the material on the BJCM & on the GT models, it doesn't seem like such heavy material.

    I loooove my city mini gt. the easy fold is great, and as others mentioned it reclines to almost flat so no need for bassinet.

    The basket is a bit awkward, but a lot of prams are like that. I actually haven't had any problems hanging my nappy bag on the back, but maybe that's just that there's not much in my bag. I was warned. A sales person that the 4wheel version often comes back in for wheel repairsso we got the three,

    So easy to manoeuvre... And narrower than some other prams. The brake on the side is also very handy!

    We ordered a pram liner as wells which definitely makes it nice and cosy. We also ordered a cup holder and compartment part... Life saver!

    As dd has gotten older, (5 months) she wants to sit up more and more. Compared to some friends who are already switching to strollers to get them sitting up taller, this one seems to sit at just right the height for her and keeps her happy.

    Love it!! The basket is a little awkward and I use a clip thingy to hang my bag from the side. I have the 3 wheel version, bought it in America for half the price they sell for here.

    Someonesmummy just reminded me , I also bought a cup holder and zippered pouch thing which straps across the handles so i can put phone (and coffee) in there when we go for a walk. I think it's a jolly jumper brand product. Fit perfectly and can stay on the pram when folded.

    I'm also looking at purchasing one of these. Is there a difference between the 2012 & 2013 models? I've seen quite a few online advertising the 2012 model
