No hearty handshake from a salesperson and no fancy coffee as you listen to their pitch - buying a new car is going to be very different.

Car showrooms are permitted to open from Monday and Isaac Agnew managing director Yuile Magee has said the new era is the biggest change in how cars have been sold in his 40 years in the industry.
