That is what I would do....... BUT only if you know and trust the shop.
Within 6 miles from my rural seat, there are 2 shops. One is a fountain of help and knowledge and is only slightly more expensive than average mail order, but with added friendly support and no courier to pay. The other in a different town in the other diresction..... is the epitome of what is worst about buying locally... Useless with advice and guaranteed to cost double the price anywhere else!
Yes, definitely try your local dealer first. Drop in for a chat and ask advice. I think most people will soon realise who is trying to "flannel" the buyer. Your local dealer is always there for help and you wont be in a queue for an 0870 number help-line. Good luck.
