Get someone to come with you.

You drive your car there, someone drives yours back while you drive the 5.

Simple!

If you  don't wish to break the law if the fives dont have insurance, tax or mot then arrange it with a local tow truck to pick it for you after you've organised the buying.

i went to cornwall for mine, got a lift there, put it on my insurance for a day and drove it ''to an mot station'' in luton because it had no tax or mot.
big loophole in the law  :wink:

i've done worse to, last 2 5's i've simply had them picked up by a courier and delivered to me a bit risky i know but they where for breaking anyway, you can get a rough idea from pics and conversation with seller if its worth the trip if in doubt stay at home and thrash one out!
