C250CDi AMG Sport Coupe

Other dealers take note, this is exactly how purchasing a used vehicle should be.

For starters the car. I bought a C class coupe which was immaculately presented. Tim Purslow Ltd had ensured that every detail demonstrated ‘as new’ quality, including refurbishment of the alloys. They only source first rate Merc examples and once they have finished with them, they simply look brand new. The price fairly represented the quality of the car. The TP website I believe lends itself to conveying a real sense of knowledge and passion in the vehicles and therefore the mindset of its proprietors. It has excellent images and all in, adds to the feeling of a quality establishment. This is important as when having to travel some distance to visit TP and then when considering parting with this sort of cash, one wants to feel assured with the company they are dealing with, beforehand and when they get there.

And then the service.

The car of course could practically sell itself but the service was truly exceptional. I had the pleasure of meeting Rory who took a highly professional yet friendly and laid back approach to the sale. I’m not sure there is anything Rory doesn’t know about Mercedes cars, and he takes great time and pleasure to explain all one needs to know. He clearly loves Mercedes and now so do I having moved from BMW. When collecting the car, again Rory took much time in ensuring I knew everything I should and even personalised the Comand system for me, as a matter of course. It was clearly important to Rory that I should be able to enjoy the car to its fullest and he gave me great confidence that I was dealing with a highly reputable and professional company.

To conclude the whole experience was great. The car was superb and the service really second to none. I will be using TP for my future servicing etc as they are really nice, trustworthy people.
