I used drivethedeal and would highly recommend them and use them again without hesitation. A very good friend tried Broadspeed, but cancelled the deal after about 4 months when trying to buy a Focus - that is all I am prepared to say! - Armitage Shanks {p}
I recall that Broadspeed were very busy some years ago when it was a good deal to buy a car in Europe and import it. They had some dealers on the continent and a tie in with a ferry company and they sold you a 'package' of transport to a garage in Belgium (or wherever) you ordered car they supplied it and a ferry trip back to UK. I have never seen them advertise and I do not have the impression that they are big players in the market now. I haven't googled for them and I don't know anyone who has used them.

I used Broadspeed back in October 2006 when purchasing a new Toyota Corolla. They referred the enquiry to - which is the internet arm of Inchcape Retail.
Absolutely no problems with the purchase.
Broadspeed used to get their funding by earning a commission fee from the selling dealer, and now, I believe, charge a fee to the customer for making the introduction should a sale go through.
This year, when changing the Corolla for a new Auris I went to Autobytel directly. Again, absolutely no problem with the purchase.
Used the same Inchcape Retail outlet for both purchases - Inchcape Toyota, Burton on Trent.
