Have you ever thought of buying car online? I know it is kind of irritating when going car show room and meeting car salesman. because you cant get to choose on what you want to see or hear.
For example if you want to buy Peugeot 308 or Peugeot 107 and you go to any Peugeot Dealer; they will tell you on what they want you hear and see. Most importantly when buying a car, you first need to know what do you really want, in other word functional specification. Example: you want to buy brand new or used Peugeot 308 i.e: the suspension, horse power, mileage, maintenance, warranty etc. It's like you doing your own groceries shopping. Once you list everything on what you need, then you can find any Peugeot Dealer that is nearest to your place.
Sound simple? Here is the website that you can do the above: http://www.perrys.co.uk/
Best part of it, you've got the opportunity to compare price and get better deal online. Who knows, from the comparison price and you go and visit the dealer, you might get another discount. As you can see, you can just click at the icon for favorite car like Ford, Chevrolet, Citroen etc. Though you can find another car at the filtration or selection, i would think it would be much better if the website can put a shortcut icon just like the rest. On the other hand, they have a very limited new car info. i.e: If I wanted to buy a brand new Honda or Merce, i couldnt find it and I can only find used Honda. Does that mean new honda or Merce is not worth to buy it? I don't know the reason behind it. Probably they have some sort like agreement.
Another thing that i like about it is that, it is considered one stop portal for car. Everything you need when buying a car is there. They give you information about the finance, insurance and srappage scheme. On the other hand, the portal is only for UK resident. Not applicable for those who live outside of UK
