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! Slowly, and with precise management, I grew my business to the point where I had the opportunity to purchase our current premises. This took place in 1998. This meant I could present quality vehicles in a clean showroom environment, demonstrating how professional and committed I am. The Business has now doubled in size with the acquisition of the adjacent land in 2003.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, as a consequence 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.

Really positive experience, the car was as expected and they were very willing for me to test drive a number of cars before purchasing. No pushy sales techniques and helpful staff. Really pleased with the car I bought, good spec for the price. Would definitely recommended Colin Ludwell Cars.


Can I take this opportunity to thank you. You as the sales person, and Colin Ludwell Cars for far exceeding my expectations in the purchase of this vehicle. Nothing was too much trouble and you made every effort to to keep me happy with the purchase.
I shall not hesitate to recommend you to any one looking for a new car and I shall definit...


Excellent service and knowledge from salesman Adam together with an excellent selection of vehicles. Great experience and extremely pleased with my purchase. Definitely worth a visit when you are looking for a new car.


Purchased a car here a month ago and the service was great! 
Unlike other garages, there was no pushy intimidating salesmen. Nothing was too much trouble and the whole transaction was quick and easy. 
Highly recommended!


From start to finish the experience was first class. Nothing was too much trouble for Nick and the team. Colin Ludwell Cars set the bar on how a car buying experience should be. Exemplary customer service which included a call a week later to see how I was enjoying my new car. The service was that good I won’t ever consider buying another car from anywhere else


Recently bought my new car from Ludwells last week and can honestly say I would definitely purchase another from them. Initially spoke to Scott but then signed all my papers with Nick. Both fantastic salesmen and not pushy like some can be. Nothing is too much trouble and I absolutely love my new car. Highly recommend Colin Ludwell.


Great experience from buying my most recent vehicle from these guys, Nick Simms is your go to guy. He applied no pressure and nothing was too much for him to do for us. I would defiantly recommend these guys to anyone who's in need of a new motor, keep up the good work guys I will be back!


Adam was extremely helpful and patient during both our visits, showing us the vehicles without being too pushy, and enabling us to take a good test drive. The reason we didn't end up buying was not the fault of this dealership but that we discovered that the passenger seat of a relatively new Mini is too low for me to be comfortable in! We can definitely recommend Coli...


Just bought a BMW 318d sport plus and what a dream to drive it is! Excellent car and I couldn't be happier! Nick was so helpful throughout the whole procedure! They even give it a full service for me. Definitely reccomend these to anyone!

Hi Nick, Just wanted to let you know how straightforward it was to change my car with you. The new car (a Ford Focus estate) is brilliant. It was very well prepared and presented, and it's lived up to everything I hoped it would be.  I came to Colin Ludwell Cars through the RAC used cars website. You were straightaway welcoming and helpful. There was no heavy &quo...
