Do any of the members here have any dealings with brokers of this type? Farther in law is buying a car new within the next 3 weeks and the discounts these people offer look very appealing. So:- Are they real? Are any better than others? Lots of feedback please. Are there any downsides of going through a broker? Have you got a quote from these people and found your local dealer matched it? This is to buy an E220cdi SE Ed125 Auto. Purchase will be outright, no finance at all.
