It took more hours than I would have wished, but I have finished dumping into the linked document all my recently acquired knowledge about buying a used car remotely off the internet never having physically seen the thing before. I know American readers will wonder what's the deal, but it's very rare in the UK or Ireland to buy a car without having physically seen it beforehand. Be warned it's a long, dense article, but there is a ton of valuable information in there and part of my motivation for writing it was to document my current state of knowledge in case I need to ever buy another car off the internet unseen. Enjoy!
