Anyone have experiance of buying a car over distance? I hate the whole car buying thing, and I'm not a great negotiator. I have found a car I like but it's near Manchester whereas I'm in Newcastle. How far would you take the conversation before deciding whether youd make the trip to see the car? I'd prefer to get a rough idea on how much movement they have on the price without giving them any clues as to how much I'd like to pay plus I'm guessing it's best to have a ballpark figure agreed before making the trip to view? Any concerns with warranty etc being so far away? Apologies if these are basic questions, I've only ever bought locally.
