    As you are buying at a distance I think you'd be covered under distance selling regulations so you would have a right to cancel within 7 days.

    Have now asked my son to go up on Tuesday, luckily he loves cars and a road trip, to have a look as sending him up there and insuring him on it will be about the same as the delivery charge.
    If they cant tax it in time then I will have to just go for it because I dont think they will wait any longer for him to go up there and I am not paying for him to go AND the delivery charge!
    Thanks for the input, guys

    Oh yeah!
    Still not quite sure about the tax issue though because the sales guy said that if I had it delivered I would have to buy it beforehand so they could tax it. Which would presumably apply if my son says yes. But I am not there, in either case, to sign the paperwork so how does that work then?
    If you drive it on trade plates you dont need tax, do you. The lad my son is going with's father owns a garage and he can drive on his dad's trade plates. So, you reckon I could buy it and Olly could drive it back without me having to tax it then? Confused!!!

    Well, reader - I bought it....
    I will put some pics up when I can.
    The car is in brilliant nick with the tiniest scratch on the bonnet and one on the back wing - literally a couple of cms long. It is cool to drive and you get admiring looks as no one has really seen one of these. Vision out of the back window isnt great but the wing mirrors are so big you can practically see behind the car with them.
    I LOVE it!!!!

    Excellent, just to answer your previous question trade plates are used instead of tax and the insurance would be on their trade policy.
