Indeed. Too much of a risk to spend this kind of money buying a car from an independent, I reckon. Need that little bit of confidence getting an AUC gives you, not that's any cast-iron guarantee, but still.
Might sell my car privately, though, to maximise what I can get for it. Dealers will probably not offer me enough on part-ex.
