Our Clients Opinions Of Us

"I have just bought the car of my dreams from this excellent company. Parkway really care about cars and their strategy to source very special vehicles that should appreciate over time will serve them well. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff are a pleasure to deal with. I found them honest (often unusual in the motor industry!), fair, hospitable, reliable and easy to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting to source one of their outstanding collection of desirable motors. Based upon my experience, it is a company one can trust." - Jonathan Muirhead, November 2017
"The first thing to say is that you will not be disappointed. From our first conversation to our last meeting Jonathan at Specialist cars was one of the most helpful and straight forward people I have met. Ask a question and you'll get the straight answer - not the smoke and mirrors sell experienced else where. I bought my Aston 'blind' with a promise if it was not exactly as stated I could walk away. The fact that I now drive one of the finest examples of a Vantage S is of great pride to me and a testimony to the highest levels of service and integrity you could ask of anyone." - Nick Warnes, November 2017
"Buying a car blind over the phone can be a worrying thing, buying a 21 year old car even worse, When I contacted Jonathan at Parkway we spoke for ages regarding the Cosworth (and other cars) with no questions being to much trouble for him, I must say he knows his cars !, I was told from the outset the price for this very special car was the price, no movement, and this Jonathan assured me was due to the condition, history etc; etc; let`s say the whole package !!!, needless to say I wasn't put off on this occasion and I bought the car, it was delivered a considerable way by Christopher (another very nice man) within a few days of the purchase and WOW, it is 100% as described and more, fantastic vehicle & fantastic service from start to finish from PARKWAY SPECIALIST CARS" - Chris Harvey, November 2017
"The entire buying experience with Parkway Specialist Cars has been pleasurable from start to finish. The initial contact was via a lengthy but informative phone call during which the details of the car were explained by Jonathan. This then lead on to a relaxed and informal meeting at the showroom to view the car and have a test drive. At no point during this encounter did we feel ill at ease or under pressure – quite the opposite in fact. After concluding the sale, Jonathan agreed to our request that the car be delivered to our home on a date which suited us. This then took place as arranged via their friendly and very helpful driver, Chris. So far, we are extremely pleased with the car (Porsche 911 Carrera 2), and wouldn’t hesitate to do business with Parkway again." - Chris Goodall, October 2017
"Have we just dealt with the most affable, sincere and professional Car Dealership in the country? I’d like to announce that in our opinion we have. We had been patiently waiting for the right car to surface when we noticed one for sale at Parkway. A quick email exchange confrmed that the car was still available and that we were more than welcome to travel over (we live 80 or so miles away from their premises) for a viewing and a chat. We arrived a little later than we had arranged although this proved not to be a problem in the slightest. We were greeted by Jon, a most friendly and personable chap! He told us to take our time, look over the car, get in and see what we thought. His turn of phrase was spectacularly comfort-inducing, telling us he knew we didn’t need him hovering over our shoulders to look at the car. With the keys in the ignition, the exhaust burbling away and smiles on our faces that would light up the Polar Night in mid-winter we were given a warming coffee to enjoy whilst we explored our potential purchase. The staff at Parkway are justifiably adamant that the cars they sell are of the highest calibre. Looking around the forecourt you would be very hard pressed to find an example that might remotely give grounds for questioning their bold statement. Examination complete we were offered a test drive and a suitable route was suggested. Away we drove, still grinning like the fruit of Lewis Carroll’s famous feline dreams. All great. The car was perfect and hit the spot immediately. Back to the Dealership and we perched ourselves in anticipation of the negotiations ahead of us. Jon had been industrious in our absence and created an initial proposal that suited our expectations and we saw no reason not to proceed. We had a later appointment in the day so were somewhat pressed for time. We had concerns we might seem less than sincere by admitting this but Jon understood perfectly and outlined a plan for the transfer of our private plate and all other paperwork to be completed. So far so good? No, so far so perfect! We had further telephone and mail correspondence throughout the following week just to keep abreast of developments with the sale and transfer of registration plate. Each time contact was made it was undeniably relaxed but unquestionably professional. These are gentlemen that many Car Dealers would do well to understand and take notes from. The date and time for the handover was agreed and when we arrived the car was parked in front of the garage gleaming and perfect after having been detailed inside and out to a fantastic standard. Paperwork was completed in a matter of minutes and we became owners of a beautiful, now realised dream. Jon had some friendly words of advice to take it easy whilst a customising ourselves to the new car and assured us that we were to contact him immediately in the event of any problems or questions. His ethos being clear - if he does not know about an issue then he cannot solve it. All we have to do is call. Yes, this may be a gushing, superlative-loaded piece extolling the paragons of virtue that Jon and Parkway have proven themselves to be but it is truly deserved. When you are making a special purchase and realising an ambition (in our case) then the experience should be one to remember. Parkway have excelled in this and all credit to them for doing so" - Wayne & Claire Saud, October 2017
"I have just bought a Golf GTI Clubsports S from them. I was going to part exchange a car but due to there honesty , and integrity i kept it(going up in value)! they have a beautiful collection of low mileage , desirable cars! 5 star" - Logan Khan, August 2017
"Just a short note to thank you and the team for your assistance today. I have just driven home in my XKR Supercharged Carbon Edition and what a car! Superbly presented with all the records. It really did look and drive like a new car. Looking forward to many more years of happy motoring and with the stock of cars you had in your showroom I'll be back and would happily recommend you to any potential customer who is considering buying a car from you. Many thanks Julian" - Julian Hedley, August 2017
"I rang to enquire about a XKRS and was answered by Jonathan immediately. No answer phone or delay and when I asked about viewing the car a straight forward yes when would you like to come was a welcome change to the usual what is your email, what is your phone number and we will get back to you! The calm, professional, knowledgeable and honest manner which Jonathan displayed gave me great confidence in the company which was not misplaced. The viewing and test drive were a pleasure in fact my wife and I were given time on our own for both, no hard sell. The car was exactly as shown in the pictures and description. Jonathan sorted the change of number plate and road tax and as I did not want to take the car that day a delivery by low loader was arranged. Jonathan kept me updated at all stages and it arrived on time at no extra charge. This is the most pain free purchase of a car (of which there have been many) I have experienced. There were many wonderful cars to be seen at Parkway but I am extremely happy with my purchase." - Andrew Georgiou, July 2017
"I don't usually write reviews but I had such a good experience here, that I really felt I should. I first spoke to Jonathan who was very straightforward and with no blarney. I arranged to come up later in the week and spent a long time chatting cars with Mark - no rush, no pushing and plenty of knowledge from a genuine fellow enthusiast. A long test drive (I got lost - oops - and the AM nav of course redirected me straight into some roadworks - oops again). But no problem, and a really good opportunity to test the car. Minor fault identified on the test - caused by the car doing so few miles recently. Immediately identified (correctly) by the on-site mechanic and fixed before delivery. We agreed a fair price and the car arrived a few days later, faultlessly prepared, on the day and within minutes of the time it was due, and exactly as I expected. I am very very picky about my cars and the sales experience, and I can say genuinely this is the first time I cannot pick fault. I am very glad Mark and his team are not nearer home - it could get expensive! If you are in the market for the type of cars Parkway sell, you really should talk to them at least. And if you have the time, get over there - it is a feast of gorgeous stuff." - Andrew Mackenzie, July 2017
"I recently approached Parkway  to see if they were interested in purchasing my beautiful low mileage BMW Z3 M Coupe - one of the few remaining examples in first class condition. The brief and friendly negotiation with Mark resulted in Parkway making a mutually agreeable offer which I accepted. I would recommend owners of fine specialist cars awaiting disposal to talk to Mark and his team to be sure of a fair offer." - Roy Selwyn, July 2017
"After dealing with 4 so called "major" car dealers in the last few weeks, what a difference doing business with Jonathan and Parkway was!! When I first called, someone answered the phone or if it was engaged, I got a call back very quickly, when I emailed for information, I got a very quick reply with all the information and more that I had asked for When Lyn and I visited the showroom to look at the Stratsone XKR, Jonathan made us very welcome whilst we discussed the car and then made us a drink and left us with the car to decide if we wanted to buy it or not, we obviously bought it and he even arranged to have it delivered to our holiday home in Somerset From start to finish, a very pleasurable experience, many thanks to Jonathan and Parkway, I hope the "major" car dealers read these reviews, they need to see how business should be done" - Paul Blower, July 2017
"I live in Spain and recently sold my beautifully restored BMW 3.0Csl.I needed something a bit more modern and usable to replace it. It had to be relatively rare and quirky to protect its value and I decided on a BMW Z3M Coupe. I found one (well, two actually) advertised at Parkway Specialist cars, a company I had no prior knowledge of. I contacted them initially by phone and was so impressed with Jonathan's obvious knowledge and easy professional manner that I arranged to go and look at the car I had chosen. I was picked up at the airport and on arriving at their showroom was given all the time I wanted to look at the cars. A test drive convinced me and twenty minutes later the deal was done - no pressure - no fuss and a promise that the very few minor niggles I identified would be addressed before I took delivery. An extremely pleasant way to spend a lot of money - the best dealer ship I have dealt with in my (long) life. Thank you. PS - so good in fact, that the next day when home in Spain, I phoned Jonathan and agreed to buy another car I had looked at and lusted after purely for its potential investment value - a very rare Mercedes w124 E500 Limited ....... one of only 500 V8 engined super saloons built in conjunction with Porsche in the early '90s. A rambling review I know, and I don't usually bother, but any one looking for these sorts of car would be missing a huge trick by not speaking to Parkway." - Richard Rihan, June 2017
"Just purchased a stunning Mercedes SLK55 from Jonathan at parkway specialist cars ,the experience was straight forward and hassle free.After kindly picking us up from the airport the car was awaiting fully prepared as promised and was presented in a highly professional manner and did not disappoint in any way.I would highly recommend them if your looking for some of the best examples in prestige, sports and performance cars all accurately described on there excellent website." - Ian & Anne Wilson, June 2017
"Excellent and considerate service - a pristine purchase. We would highly recommend Mark and his team." - Virginia Mead-Herbert, June 2017
"I had been searching for 5 months to purchase my 996 Turbo, then I met the team over at Parkway Specialist Cars. I dealt mainly with Jonathan, and had a fantastic, professional, no pressured approach to purchasing my Turbo, which turned out to be an absolute corker when time came to view/collect the car. Both Jonathan and Mark were exceptionally knowledgable about the car and were very efficient when it came to completion of necessary paperwork. I have to say one of the best vehicle purchasing experiences I have gone through. Well done Gents!!" - Crayson Jenkins, June 2017
"I recently purchased a car from Parkway specialist cars. Tim was a pleasure to deal with. One thing that I hate about car dealers is the "hard sell". Tim gave me lots of time to inspect the car at my leisure and then plenty of time to make my mind up about the car in a friendly relaxed atmosphere with helpful advice. The car itself is perfect and I cannot fault it. Due to my busy schedule, I could not collect the car straight away, but the guys at Parkway were happy to hold on to the car for me for a few weeks until I could collect it. From the stock that I saw on their premises, I got the impression that they are very careful about which cars they put their name to. All the stock seemed to be of a very high quality. I would be happy to deal with Parkway again. It was a positive buying experience from start to finish." - Nick O'Kane, May 2017
"Excellent experience, well worth a 350 miles trip.
Really great experience with both Jonathan and Mark, no pressure whatsoever and happily spent hours of their time making sure we were happy before we left." - Coles Family, May 2017
"I had been patiently searching for a mint 911 996 Porsche Turbo with the X50 pack and was recently able to locate one at Parkway Specialist Cars. After a brief conversation with Mark it was obvious that the car was genuine and in first class order with superb history and low mileage. My wife and I made arrangements ti drive up and visit the showrooms and upon meeting Mark and seeing the Porsche, the decision to go ahead and purchase was very simple and rewarding. A truly excellent showroom and choice of first class premier motor vehicles, all in pristine condition. We can only pass on our sincere thanks to Mark for the very honest and genuine personal service he provided us with and for preparing and selling the car in what can only be described as 'as new' condition. Thoroughly recommended!!!" - Martin Tyler, May 2017
"Excellent range of cars, kind and friendly service. Overall brilliant!" - William Heath, March 2017
"Our first contact with Parkway Specialist cars was through their website, easy to use and good detail of cars provided. We contacted Jonathan and had a very speedy response. Upon visiting the showroom, we found a very professional but relaxed environment, which may us feel very comfortable. The purchase of the car we chose was very quick and easy - one week later we are the proud owner of a Jaguar XKR - excellent service." - Nicky Wilde, April 2017
"I recently purchased a beautiful car from Parkway. I have never been treated so well by a car dealer before . I cannot praise them enough. The car was prepared expertly and they brought the car to my home on a trailer. Jonathan organised everything, including the transfer of my number plates, and they game me the new plates! Thanks for everything. I will always check Parkway out when I'm buying a car in the future." - Noel Gavin, December 2016
"Having been looking for my perfect car for over a year, I came across Parkway Specialist Cars and from the outset I found the team to be highly professional and dedicated. Of particular thanks goes to Mark who took the time to answer all my many questions and the whole process of purchasing was a smooth and easy one. I would highly recommend to all." - John Brookshaw, December 2016
"I recently purchased a beautiful car from Mark at Parkway. He is very knowledgeable, friendly doesn't fall into the car dealer hard sell arena. He only buys the best cars available and they sell themselves. Parkway will be the first place I look in future!! " - Ken McKay, March 2017
"From start to finish my experience with parkway specialist cars was second to none. Everything was made so simple for me I only had to turn up and view my car then drive it away. My car is as I noticed the other cars were too in pristine condition and though my car was one of the cheapest there I was treated 1st class,thank you , John." - Mr. Ferkins, February 2017
"If you like such cars ,you can be sure that you meet serious people in the company ...the pictures of the cars are like the reality , the owners of Parkway Specialists are very helpful to deal with people from abroad. I bought a Bentley which was in a 1A condition and i am happy to find such company" - Ernst Englaender, January 2017, Germany
"Buying a new car of any specification from 1k -100k should be the same experience. The guys here treated my wife and I with great respect and politeness from start to finish. The vehicle we purchased was presented in the showroom in pristine condition and also when we collected it, they made it look even better. What else can we say, superb cars and cracking customer service. Thanks again!" - Steven Clague, February 2017
"I could not describe just how easy, pleasant, professional & quickly our car purchase from Parkway was. Everything including the paperwork, was handled with precise detail over about 15 emails, so that when we arrived there were no last minute problems. All in all a very sweet purchase. We would recommend Parkway highly if you are looking for that special car. So a special thanks to Jonathan, Tim, Mark & all of the back room staff who prepared our car for that lovely moment of the key hand over. Cannot get much closer to heaven than that" - John Kirk, January 2017
"INCREDIBLE! Excellent from initial phone chat to new car collection. Tim was friendly without being over the top, relaxed, highly professional and clearly deeply knowledgeable. I can not recommend them highly enough and in a difficult and generally not well respected trade Parkway are a beacon on how it should be done! Buying specialist higher value cars is parked with danger to the unwary - these guys make it a simple and fun experience! Many Many thanks." - Robert Macdonald, February 2017
"Just bought a fantastic Porsche 911 from Parkway and I have to say it was a great experience. They were very helpful and knowledgeable and clearly Love the vehicles they deal with. The car itself was without a doubt the best example around that I could find and certainly lived up to my expectations when I viewed it. I picked it up with no hassle at all and it is still putting a smile on my face now. Thanks for your help."  - Ross Morton, March 2017
"A great company to deal with! From the moment we first made contact we were treated with respect and kept informed on the progress of our car. Contact via email extremely easy. Plenty of high class cars in stock to view. We got an exceptional car. Thank you for the excellent service, we are very impressed and highly recommend your company. Regards David and Joan." - David Clayton, March 2017
