The ins and outs of buying a car

Links to sites that advise on how to get the best deal when you buy a new or used car. Sites with info on the importation of cars from abroad, and that will sell you a car in this country. The major manufacturers are listed so that you can decide on the specification you desire before haggling with the dealer for the best price. In the case of Vauxhall, however, they now have a range of cars for sale exclusively on the internet, watch out for more to follow suit.

If you don't have a car, but need one for a few days, see our carhire page, but if you need insurance for your existing vehicle, follow the link.
