There is a very apt motto which applies to car buying - measure twice and cut once.

Sure, if the car turns out to be a bag of bolts (and I'm not saying this one is - haven't seen it), you have legal redress from a dealer - but do you really want the hassle/expense/worry that can cost?

The 'right' car is out there waiting for you - just be prepared to put in a bit of legwork online.

I did that last year, when sourcing my current car, and had to travel around 600 miles to collect it - but it was worth it.

Take care, and if you see anything you want a second opinion about - this is the forum to ask away.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
