They are all a long way from where you live, so if the car you are going to look at isnt very good

it will be a long journey back! Why dont you ask them to e-mail you some digital pictures of inside

and outside so that you can get a good look at it first.

I travelled to london to pick mine up.. LOL flew down from edinburgh to get it..

deffinitly worth the trip if you can find a mint car like I did..

Wow another XR2i 16v owner. I used to have one of those - not that many about. Got too slow for me in the end a Williams and then youll see how a car is supposed to go around corners. The XR2i 16v handled like a soppy sack of spuds!

Get a loan and buy off an enthusiast, best bet in my opinion cause most trade cars are bought at auction which can mean they were poorly looked after. Not many Williams owners will trade in for a new car (so id have thought), but obviously this is not always true.

Id look for a willy 2, best one in my opinion.
