Yes it was straightforward really, the salesman at Perrys was good and helpful, the roads were not too bad. On the way I came through Gildersome, I don't know if you know it but in some places the snow had drifted covering half the road, I have traded in a Chevy Captiva so it coped very well with the conditions. Came back by a more main route, did not want to take any risks.
