The reason I asked was that since the recent changes to Banking Laws, I assumed the process would go as follows.

I thought the whole idea of the new laws was to stop the banks holding onto customer's money, earning themselves interest for a few days, before finally transferring to the destination account.

Hope it all happens on time !

The reason for the 4-day delay is not just due to BACS (although I presume they choose the cheapest (and therefore slowest method). Although the car was visually perfect, their policy is to have their workshop do a more thorough check. It's not to reduce the price further by finding fault from wear and tear items (I am assured that the price I have in writing is now the final price paid)'s more to check it's not accident damaged, two cars glued together or hiding something really bad. They've clearly been burnt before but I guess I find out tomorrow when the money should be in my account
