Welcome to Colin Ludwell Cars

After many years experience gained in the mechanical side of the motor trade, listening to horror stories, problems and complaints regarding the purchase of the new and used vehicles from motor dealers, I decided to do some research. I wanted to know what it would take to setup my own business as a motor dealer / provider. In 1982, after many months of meetings and gentle persuasion from my bank manager, I decided to setup up a small manageable operation selling used but quality vehicles. I had high standards that needed to be followed by all and everyone who had dealings with my business. This meant I could confidently retail used vehicles without the problems I’d encountered so frequently during my mechanical days! Now with just under 1 acre of land, I am able to display up to 130 vehicles for sale at any one time and have my own workshops, not just for the preparation of the cars before they are presented for sale, but any service requirements my customers may have during their ownership. I have listened to complaints from customers regarding the purchase price of a new car within the UK, consequently I thought there may be a chance we could explore and become a new car supplier. I fully appreciated the implications and pitfalls alike of becoming a new car provider, although felt we could outweigh this with our experience, and was confident we could become a force to be reckoned with, at which point we started supplying new cars at much reduced prices. More recently we have been busy behind the scenes here at Colin Ludwell Cars. In 2017 we purchased an additional offsite premise for the storage and preparation of extra cars, allowing us to carry up to 150 cars in stock at any one time. In the workshops our equipment is always changing to keep up with technology in new cars. Our state-of-the-art diagnostics equipment allows our technicians to quickly and accurately find faults on many modern cars. Software updates available.


Bought a GTI from Nick a few weeks back - he knew lots about the car and its history and was really helpful throughout. Nick also offered a FaceTime tour of the car as I was buying it remotely. The car was in great condition and matched the photos and video online - would highly recommend Nick and the team.


Top class service from Colin Ludwell Car Sales Ltd. The service and after sales service afforded to me by Colin Ludwell Cars Ltd was excellent. The car was delivered on the agreed day and time with the minimum of fuss. I had a query on some of the control functions and this was explained and clarified by the garage without delay. Nothing was too much trouble for them and I...


We bought a car online (during covid) and had it delivered to our home. The team I spoke with at Colin Ludwell Cars, especially Nick, were all very courteous, friendly and professional. They responded to email questions very quickly and got the car the morning (9:30am) after we'd made the purchase. The entire purchase was very efficient and painless. I would highly rec...


Sold my car to Colin Ludwell, got a very fair price, and excellent follow up and service. I prefer to sell to reputable dealers with a high value car, no nonsense and simple process. Special mention to Vince who collected the car, sorting out all the transfer and was very professional throughout.


This is my second car I have purchased from Colin Ludwell cars and the service from Nick was the best I have ever received, even better than any main dealer I’ve been in. The service and value for money is excellent, Nick went out of his way and sorted all the paperwork and figures out for me so all I had to do was pick the car up, he gave me all the information I ne...


I dealt with Nick from sales and Vince for collection of my car. Both were very kind and helpful. Especially Vince, he adhered to the Covid guidelines and he was friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. I questioned about the transfer to a motor trader and he did it all online for me which is much appreciated!


The guys at Colin Ludwell cars are great. I dealt with Nick who was the consummate professional and very friendly. Buying a car can be a fraught process but the experience was 5 stars on every level. I would definitely buy from CL Cars again and I have no hesitation in recommending them to friends and strangers alike. Thanks guys.


I spoke to Adam a few times before I got on the train to bristol. Adam reassured me that I made the right choice and even assisted me with a lift from the train station. 

He is very professional and answered all my questions. Further More, I was assisted with the right insurance, road tax and free breakdown that enabled me to drive my car (BMW) back home.



Colin Ludwell recently provided me with a stress-free,no pressure car shopping experience, and I am so pleased with my new car! I would reccomend these guys to anyone, and I have done so already. 


Great experience from start to finish. Amazing service, friendly and helpful staff that made the stressful job of buying a car a pleasant experience!

Very pleased with my Range Rover Evoque and would reccomend anyone looking for a car to try Colin Ludwell cars. 


Always shopped at Colin Ludwell Cars, a repeat customer for a reason. Always friendly and helpful, and the 3 year warranty is a great piece of mind when buying a used car. 


While looking for a car for my dad we worked out what car we wanted, found one at another garage close to home that was rubbish and then contacted Nick at Colin Ludwell Cars.

We were unable to visit the garage, however, we were able to establish that this was the right car for us. A Mitsubishi ASX, and Nick agreed to bring it to us a couple of nights later.
