    Interesting first post.

    Can you be a little more specific. It so happens that a family member is looking at a car from this garage and I was about to post a similar thread. The car is a Superb Automatic and there seems to be a few of them around several similar garages all registered within a few digits of each other. I was thinking they were fleet/rental cars perhaps?

    They do look like rental cars.

    They are lower spec. ie. wheel covers not alloys.

    If you still want to proceed ask them straight out about history and look for service records.

    A 2 litre car would be a better drive but the 1.6 is adequate.

    A lot of UK imports by the looks of it. Would be asking for UK number plates and doing a couple of check on them.....like you should do with all dealers by the way so not saying anything specific about this company

    I bought a car from them in the last few months and would have no problem recommending them. They were very good to deal with.

    They say they don't do UK imports, but get most of their cars from dealers. We bought a Jag, which had a full service history from Spirit.

    It needed to go back for a few fixes and they had no problem doing that, giving us a replacement car to keep us going.

    I'm also thinking of buying a car from this seller. How did people get on?

    Never late to post!

    Bad experience! These 2 brothers think they are the best dealers in the world....They will show you innocent faces at the beginning of the purchase until you buy their cars and they are different people..
    They use other con people/companies to add "accessories" when selling cars. At the end, they refuse or give wrong information about these other companies' details to complain with when these accessories are faulty or broken.

    AVOID!!

    Yea what exactly happened? I'm looking at a 16 A4 on they're site, 50,000 miles, says Irish car also. Would rather a main dealer purchase but would be tempted by this deal, if these "brothers" are genuine

    Nothing is what happened :)

    A first time poster came on and made some serious allegations which they failed to stand up.

    The amount of new users on this thread is comical and speaks volumes


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,364 ✭✭✭ griffin100


    Has anyone any recent experience of these guys?



  • Registered Users Posts: 12,966 ✭✭✭✭ wotzgoingon


    This thread is funny some guy a couple of posts from the top joined boards.ie before anybody here most likely and waits 15 years later to post his first post on the site in this thread and then never follows up with a explanation of his experience with the said company.
