Good morning Yes got back safely yesterday, still rather nervous, however away for the weekend shortly, and hopefully all will be well. A really big thank you ,and to David, for making it all so easy and pleasurable yesterday,which was very much appreciated.
I hope all is well with you.
Just a quick e-mail to say thank you for the way in which you dealt with our recent transaction.
I’m very happy with the Land Rover, and your after sales service.
Dealing with you has been a pleasure, and I would recommend B.S.C. to anyone who would like to experience the same type of
hassle free and fair deal.
Car received thank you. Level of detailing and prep excellent.
I have a big grin.
Just wanted to drop you a note saying how much I love car and thanking Harry and yourself for the great service. Did about 50 miles in her on Thursday and she’s a pleasure to drive !
Thanks again, and no doubt I’ll be in touch soon.
What can I say except it was an absolute pleasure meeting you today and I wish I had met you 30 years ago!!. You are a total gent and professional and you made the sale so easy.
Thank you so so much for the purchase and i sincerely hope our paths will cross again.
Love the car and so does the family – so no worries there.
Before I forget, many thanks for the gloves (perfect fit !!) and the tool kit etc. it was very thoughtful of you.
Lets keep in touch.
Not normally one to write reviews – I feel its appropriate to do so regarding Bicester Sports Cars. Nick and his team have been outstanding from the outset, a highly professional, knowledgeable outfit with fantastic customer service. I can’t recommend more highly. Having navigated the main dealerships over the years I’m so pleased to have found a company I can trust.
The perfect transaction. Nick and team at Bicester were incredibly helpful and efficient both with helping me acquire finance and having the car ready and delivered to me in just a couple days in a condition that exceeded their description and photos. My highest recommendation to all.
In October of this year I was looking at adverts as I was interested in buying an E type Jaguar.
It has always been one of my dreams to own such a car.
I started looking at prices and they were really quite expensive, especially since at the age of 72
I probably would not have many years left of driving such a beautiful car.
As I browsed through the adverts I came across the company, Bicester Sports Cars,
and came across an E type Challenger at a very reasonable price compared to the prices of the authentic
I did my research on the E type Challenger and realised they were in fact the next best thing
and probably a better car to drive.
I was on a trip to the United Kingdom and decided to see the car. I met the owner of
Bicester Sports Cars, Nick Dove and he showed me and my two companions, who accompanied me to see
the car, this really amazing car in excellent condition and beautifully presented.
I was treated with the utmost courtesy and friendliness. He gave me the opportunity of a test drive and
on my return from the test drive, we discussed the price.
Quite honestly, nothing was too much for Nick, he went out of his way to help me with every little
matter that came up and you could tell, just after a few minutes of meeting him, that you are dealing
with a very efficient and honest person.
I would personally recommend him and his company and the cars he sells to anybody.
My car will very soon be here in Malta, where I live and I hope I shall enjoy many years driving it around
on our sunny island.
Thanks Nick for all your help.
Firstly thank you for making the process of buying a car enjoyable!
Its been a pleasure dealing with such a professional and knowledgeable person and not just a pushy salesmen. I will certainly give this update on your website.
Yes don’t worry any servicing requirement will come straight to you.
Thanks again for all your help,
Recently bought an exotic Italian from BSC and must say they offer a service and standards way above any dealer I have previously used.
Nothing is too much trouble and attention to detail outstanding!
Very highly recommended
The whole process of buying the car from you has been most enjoyable. Having had two unhappy experiences when buying more modern cars recently – neither of which was remotely ready when I went to collect – it was most refreshing to discover that I was not dealing with “car salesmen” but with true, genuine and very knowledgeable, enthusiasts. You also went the extra mile in properly sorting out the things that you agreed to attend to, so that when I collected the TR3 it was in great shape and on the button: not to mention coming complete with a new jack, hammer, set of imperial spanners in a tool roll and bottle of water for the driver!
I will not bore you with the 3’s every move from now on but I will keep in touch. Thank you for selling me such a jolly – and jolly good – car.
Thanks for following-up. There were certainly admiring glances at the festival and it survived without any scratches. The drive back down the M40 was fine and it dealt with the London congestion on a very hot day well (I had the fan switched on in the traffic so that probably helped). She’s tucked away in the storage vault now and so will be well looked after.
Thank you very much indeed for making the purchase of my first classic a smooth and reassuring experience!
Thank you for the excellent experience of purchasing my first Boxster from you on Saturday.
I will no doubt contact you again in the future when I come to replace it.
I am writing to thank you sincerely for the help and advice that you provided in the lead-up to and purchase of the e type. Having received details of the car’s preparation, I was so confident in the engineering integrity that I decided to set-off to central Switzerland on its first day of ownership. Apart from a friend who bought a TR2 from you and did the same, everybody else thought I was mad!!
I was absolutely right to be so confident. Your service exceeded my expectations and the hard work of your team resulted in a fault-free journey of over 900 miles. Indeed, if I recall correctly, you called me every day to check on progress and all I had to report was that everything was fine.
The BSC team has earned my admiration and respect and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anybody that wishes to buy a quality classic car. Thanks for an exceptional job Nick.
Bicester Sports Cars , a great company to do business with. From the first meeting with Nick and his team I could not have felt more comfortable. The information supplied, test drive to them handing the car over was fast and efficient. The Austin Healey has been fantastic and was prepared in no time at all; Nick spent time explaining how everything operated and went the extra mile to make the handover special. Having owed many classic cars previously I can honestly say this is by far the best place I have ever dealt with.
“I have both purchased and sold many cars through various classic car dealers over many years, and it can be a bit of a minefield at times. However, I can say with hand on heart that I have never had a better experience than with your company. Having purchased a fabulous one-owner Jaguar XK8 from you a few weeks back, the car was so beautifully presented and the whole buying process so trouble free, I was so impressed with the way you handled everything that I decided to entrust you with the sale of my rare Maserati Merak SS which is in concours-winning condition. My faith proved to be very well placed! You collected the car promptly and within a couple of days of receiving it had it displayed it with excellent photos and description on your website. A few days after that it was already sold! You resolved any remaining minor mechanical niggles with the car in your workshops prior to sale, and even took a modern car in part exchange from the buyer. I was impressed with your thoroughness, the speed with which you made everything happen, the constant reassuring communication that kept me abreast of things at all stages, and your obvious high standards. It is not often I encounter someone in the trade who has the same level of perfectionism as myself! I will not hesitate to buy or sell through you again and indeed will recommend your services to others at every opportunity. Thank you again!”
Just want to let you know that I received the car this morning. Everything is just as I was hoping. It was always going to be a gamble buying a 31 year old car without even looking at it but the gamble paid off. The way you presented the car in your photos is what sold it to me. I want to thank you for everything you have put together in this deal and I think we’ll definitely be doing business together again in the future.
Firstly, I would like to say that it was a pleasure to meet with you. I and Sharon were very impressed with your hospitality, service and facilities and I am convinced we have a good relationship in place.
My experience of driving the car was quite amazing and exhilarating so thank you for giving me the opportunity to do so – The car is just fantastic and pretty much is everything I wish for.
Absolutely fabulous. We are really delighted with this little Alfa. Had her out all day yesterday hood down because we knew the weather forecast for the weekend. Thank you.
I had been considering a replacement car following ‘life changing’ surgery, where I has been left with some disability. This meant that I would only be able to drive an automatic and I would need to have my legs as straight as possible. Hours of research on line combined with a maximum budget of under £13000 and the other requirements left me with few ‘reasonable’ possibilities.
I finally found Bicester Sports Cars and a Porsche Boxster S. Not only was it well within my budget but it was fitted with a tiptronic automatic gearbox. Even though the car was 12 years old, it had only done 33000 miles. The car seemed in perfect condition – significantly lower mileage and therefore wear and tear than similarly aged cars I had viewed.
Nick drove the car over to me and following a test drive I was happy to part with my money. At no point did Nick pressure me into the purchase. I have had several encounters with car salesmen, most of which were not the pleasant experience that I hoped for; Nick knew that the car was an excellent example and I had to agree with him completely.
I have had the car almost a year now and any problems I have come across (a very few) have been dealt with by Nick and his team at Bicester Sports Cars with professionalism, courtesy and efficiency. The car has been admired by many at Porsche Club GB gatherings and I hope to be entering in Concourse competitions next year.
Buying secondhand cars can be fraught with all kinds of pitfalls, but I can only reiterate how fair and professional Bicester Sports Cars are; having visited their showrooms several times, I wish I was able to buy just about any of their cars in stock, from the Classics to any of the other Porsches.
Thank you Nick and your team for your hard work and support – long may you continue!
Having decided to purchase a classic Triumph TR, I perused the usual outlets, unfortunately without any real success.
Some time later, by chance I found a car being offered by BSC, which looked promising. I called them, spoke to Nick and arranged to view the car the following day.
My visit to BSC proved to be both a rewarding and pleasant experience. The car was impeccably presented,and Nick afforded me plenty of time to have a really good look around it.The subsequent test drive did not disappoint.
Consequently the deal was closed, which included 6 months warranty,a full service and a new MoT.This was all dealt with in a relaxed atmosphere, over a cup of tea. I collected the car about a week later,with everything completed as promised.
After about a fortnight the car developed a couple of minor niggles,(which could not have been previously detected)I phoned Nick,and without a quibble the car was collected from my home and returned the following day,in perfect order.
I was so impressed by the service, I bought another car from them.It is clear that Nick and his staff are classic car enthusiasts,with a wealth of knowledge. They pride themselves in offering a wide range of high quality vehicles,at sensible prices,which is supported by excellent service and aftercare.
I have bought a considerable number of cars in my 50 years of motoring, but dealing with Nick and his staff has proved probably the most satisfying.
Finally I wish Nick and his staff every success in the future,they certainly deserve it.
Having dreamt about buying a 911 since I first saw a black 930 Turbo as a 10 year old, thirty years later I found myself in a position to be able to finally buy a preloved one. Of all the garages I visited, Nick and Richard impressed me with their knowledge and passion for these cars. The service they have provided has been outstanding – from showing me a number of 911s of different vintages and discussing what would be the best choice for a daily driver, to sourcing an absolutely stunning 996 C4S, which was prepared to the highest standard and delivered to my home with an extensive handover, to dealing patiently with my questions around the various quirks of a rear-engined car, to collecting and providing a courtesy car to provide a health check a month into ownership and to repairing the front bumper after a kamikaze pheasant strike the week before Christmas. The guys at Bicester Sports Cars make you feel more like a life-long friend than a customer. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a refreshingly professional sales experience. We were both blown away by your relaxed but knowledgable approach to selling us our 911.
We both completely love the car, and have already planned some road trips for next spring and summer-hopefully making it to a friends house in northern Italy.
Wouldn’t hesitate to either buy or recommend you to friends.
Thanks again and will stay in touch.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line with regards to my recent purchase from you.
The car is great, but I have to say the service was one of the best I’ve experienced. I have been fortunate enough to have bought many cars from many main dealers, ranging from Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, BMW, Merc, Range Rover and the list goes on. I can tell you that a great deal of their salesman should come and take a course with yourself for a few days.
You have the right balance of being a salesman without pushing it down the throat of your customer. Negotiating the deal was effortless and fair, making the whole process….bar me parting with a huge amount of money, because of my choice of car….very easy and enjoyable.
The car was delivered to my home and in immaculate condition. Equally the after-sales has been impressive and I would not hesitate to come to you again when I’m ready to change again.
I was impressed by your responsiveness throughout and will come back to you next time I am looking for something new.
Buying a second hand car can be daunting but buying my first 45 year old classic car from BSC proved to be hassle free with top class service and support to make the whole process reassuring and the enjoyable experience I hoped it would be. I have now had my first year of trouble free motoring and look forward to a continued relationship with Nick and Richard. They demonstrate a clear knowledge and passion for their cars, and their customers, and have been both responsive and reliable in honouring their promises. I am keeping an eye on the showroom and would not hesitate in recommending BSC.
It’s always a concern when buying a car, you invest a great deal of money and you want it to all to go well. This is even more the case when you invest a portion of your hard earned savings into a classic car.
We live in Switzerland and came across a rather nice TR2 (1955) at . Bicester Sports & Classics. A call to Nick at BSC secured the car over the phone with a small fully refundable deposit and a few days later we made our way across to the UK to view the car.
BSC where particularly impressive at making sure we were happy with the car and provided details and information as we requested it. Nick at BSC made us feel very welcome and after a lengthy test ride and brief negotiation the deal was done. Now, keep in mind we had to drive a 60 year old car back from north of London to Switzerland, we have a much newer MGB (72) and knew that such journeys even in much newer classics as this rarely come without issues.
When we picked up the car we were delighted to see that BSC had provided a full European travel kit along with a range of tools and supplies for the long journey home.
The TR2 made it back to Switzerland, it did have the odd minor hiccup or two on the way and we reported these back to Nick as we were travelling, nothing too serious but we would need to change out a fuel pump and seal when we got home. BSC immediately ordered the parts needed to fix the TR and these where with us in Switzerland almost before we arrived back ourselves. Nick went on to make sure in the following days that we had the problems solved and the work was completed on the car.
It’s unusual in my experience to have such a level of service. BSC are a pleasure to deal with and the after sales care you will receive is second to none. Nick and his team take the responsibility of classic car sales very seriously and buying our classic car was the nice experience we hoped it would be. BSC comes with our highest recommendation.
