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.


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.


Excellent service from the start. Adam couldn't do enough for us. Adam was very honest which is what I want. No sales talk or pushing you to buy! This would be my 3rd car from Colin Ludwell. 

Outstanding customer service. I would highly reccomend Colin Ludwell Cars. Thank you again Adam. 


Excellent Service. Went to look at one car and bought two, no pressure sales, good service, and prep work. Delivered the cars to us, which saved a lot of time and hassle. 

Good After sales as well, well done and thanks. 


Faultless. If only all car dealers were as good as Colin Ludwells. The car was delivered in better than new condition. All the niggles were sorted before we collected the car, not that there were many anyway.

The Salesman Adam was nothing less than perfect. Courteous, polite and our part exchange was professionally managed. All we can say is don't go anywhere ...


Excellent from beginning to end. The car was perfect and the buying experience was a pleasure. No pressure selling, just knowledgeable advice and guidance.

I would happily reccomend Colin Ludwell cars to anyone looking for a quality second hand vehicle. 


I texted Colin Ludwell Cars at 7am Friday was suprised to get a response a few minutes later!! From start to finish the experience of buying from them was seamless.

There is definitely no pressure to buy and decisions around extended warranty are really not force on you. 

Delighted with our purchase and can reccomend them to anyone.

Also lov...


This was the 20th car that has been bought in the family through Colin Ludwell cars. I think that says it all.

Sure there be more in the future. 


Fantastic service! Buying my car was so quick and easy and I was made very welcome, Not pushy at all! Genuinely nice as they value their reputation.

They also have Gromits in thier showroom which my kids were amazed with!
