Thanks for all the advice guys

I ended up going for the DeWalt DCD790D2-GB 18V XR 2.0Ah Li-Ion Cordless Drill Driver Brushless

As you can see from the tittle its the brushless model, and its a real peice of quality kit. Loving it :huray:

Thanks again

BTW I have a friend who works in the trade and ended up getting this for £196.99

So a good deal in the end

I can treat the Mrs to a Chinese tonight with the money I saved :)

These Dewalt cordless drills are not combi drills, they have no hammer action. Or am I missing something?

Mines has hammer action and was 209 quid with 2 x 4ah batteries. It's not the xrp model which is heavy duty but I really only put screws in with mine and the odd red rawl plug.

Here is the model I got,it's 200 notes on Amazon now,no doubt cheaper elsewhere. It's worth it for the batteries alone IMO.
