It is tempting to go for the Screwfix one, as the charge and battery are £95 on there own (I doubt the difference between 4ah and 3ah battery will matter much to me). However, my last Makita Drill/Driver lasted me a decade, still tempted to go for the Brushless DHP480, its also a bit lighter.
But what do I do, just grab the separate components. Or grab the DHP480 plus the screw fix bundle. £25 more expensive, 3ah battery. But I get a spare body (is it worth much, as I likely won't use it if its heavier then the 480) and case.

Apparently this will be my Fathers day pressie but having to do the research and picking myself :)Also will the battery the OP has listed work with their lighter bodies also? Ideally want a light body for general DIY and a heavy duty one so I don't have to faff around with the corded drill/running an extension/etc. My previous cheap NiCd Makita is finally giving up the ghost and the Mrs is at a loss what to get for Fathers day (my first one :)) so thought that was a good sign as to what to get me. Guess it will also put a stop to the complaining about my tools when a job needs doing.
They were selling as low as £66.99 back in March 2015. Now at £99.95 on ebay oO
Don't get me wrong it's a lot of drill for the money and I nearly went for it as I already have batteries and charger from other units. Still tempted even at this price. This will be good as a drill driver and should suit most DIY tasks.
