Ian was a pleasure to deal with, excellent service and no sales pressure. The Mercedes was exactly as described and I am very pleased with it.
I would certainly recommend Cotswold Motorsport to anyone wishing to
purchase a vehicle.
Thank you Ian.
Huge thanks to Ian and all the team. Highly professional service from start to finish and a wonderful car to boot. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
Thanks for your help selling the car. It was a very straight forward and painless process.
Huge thanks to Ian. Extremely professional and very knowledgeable. So happy with the car, completely faultless and at a great price. Would definitely use Cotswold Motorsport again! Absolutely no pressured sales techniques, a pleasure to do business with. Tucked away in a great location, the drive home to London was very enjoyable.
Their main building is indeed beautiful, the one place that it reminded me of was one of the outer buildings at the Enzo Ferrari museum in Modena! Don't laugh, I'll find a pic I took there, you might agree!
But I digress slightly. I was met by Ian, who does indeed make a very good cup of tea as I had seen in the comments from previous customers! He took me around some of his cars, we had a look around the Nismo and chatted about just how meticulous Nissan are about the car. All the tyres need to have exactly the same tread depth and the wheels can't be refurbished!
There was an extremely low mileage Mercedes SL500 in a humidified storage container, a lovely Audi RS5 (with which I'm a little tempted) and an absolutely fabulous Ferrari Testarossa!
Talking to Ian was a real eye opener, this is a guy that has spent nearly 25 years buying and selling cars, specifically Porsches and Ferraris, and he really knows his stuff. Prices, costs, issues, condition, fixes, the lot. I was really impressed.
His business doesn't just buy and sell cars though. They do storage, track days, tours and a car club where you can 'swap' your car every three months! Get the car right and it's possible to have four different cars in a year and not lose any money! True....you need to be able to afford a Ferrari F430 or similar to start with, but the idea is interesting!
The attention to detail Cotswold Motorsport go to was incredible. Listening to how the cars are chosen, bought and prepared was brilliant. Not only that I got to see how they are maintain in the showroom.
I also got the chance to meet British National Superstock racer Fraser Rogers #89 who is managed by Ian! Talk about a diverse business! Fraser works there in the quiet winter months, before testing his new 1000cc ZX10 in Spain in February. He had three podiums this year on a bike with 216bhp! A figure that I thought was utterly nuts for a bike, but he said wasn't enough! Apparently next years bike will be a whole lot better!
I had a great time talking cars, something I could ramble on for hours! I'd like to thank Ian for his time. In the end I only took two pics! But do take a look at their website for some far better ones and check out their past stock, they really do pick out some great examples.
Ian was really helpful and so patient with me. He was not pushy in the slightest and made sure I was happy with the car. If you're looking for an honest sale then this is definitely the place to go. Best decision I have ever made and the 6 hour round trip was definitely worth it. Thanks Ian!
Your welcome Emma.
Ian was a pleasure to deal with, The defender purchased was a great example - Very happy to recommend.
Ian made my purchase relaxing and stress free even though I felt physically sick at spending my life savings on such a beautiful car . Three weeks on and don't regret my purchase
Thank you Peter.
Im pleased you recovered from your spend and are now enjoying your 911..
Wonderful service,always polite and courteous ,with an excellent eye for detail.This is all I need to say really,however Ian and his team at Cotswold Motorsport deserve so much more
My recent purchase of a C4S became a most pleasant and stress free experience.Nothing was too much trouble even though my wife and I visited to inspect the car on at least 6 occasions,even taking along my daughter ,son-in-law and the 2 grandchildren on one occasion.
Attention to detail is outstanding ,everything cleaned as it should be,with all defects corrected before they are available for sale regardless of how trivial.
The collection,paperwork and payment was also dealt with ease,even to the point of taxing the vehicle before I departed.
In this day and age you struggle to receive good customer service,particulary from the motor trade,however it was a real pleasure to purchase a vehicle from Ian.I will certainly return for servicing,and MOT's.
Thank you Ian for everything.
