Does anyone have any experience of them and what checks could I do to protect myself if I decided to give it a go?

Yes, I've seen that thanks' vertex. These prices appear to a be a little bit lower than the target though. I also quite like the idea of doing it all on line without having to talk to the dealers anymore. I did buy from years ago and that was brilliant, but they were part of RBS. Sadly, they no longer exist.

Drive the deal are awesome. Cannot recommend them highly enough uk cars from main dealers. They also have a proper office if things go wrong (not that it will, but you get what i mean!)
