A selection of Happy Customers..
Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for supplying me with such a fantastic car (I absolutely love it!) and making the process smooth, efficient and enjoyable. I thought your communication throughout was first class.The drive home was a little nerve wracking (as it always is for me with new cars and looking out for random behaviour from other road users!) but I was immediately impressed with the R8.
With the engine noise and looks, it feels exotic yet all the primary controls are so easy to use that it does not intimidate (apart from maybe a little the width of the car). The clutch, gear change, throttle pedal and steering all feel beautifully harmonised and full of feel (much more so than my old 996 Turbo), and the engine revs so smoothly. Can’t wait to drive it more!
Hopefully will take it to the Goodwood Breakfast Club, if not this weekend then next month for Supercar Sunday.
Jeremy has to be one of the most attentive car salesman I have met to date! Was very patient with me and didn’t force or push me like many have done in the past. Very professional and despite not usually opening on a Sunday, catered for my needs and went above and beyond to make sure my experience was a very positive one!

I have bought two cars from this boutique seller of performance and specialist cars- a Porsche Boxster 3.2 S (2003) two years ago and recently a Porsche Boxster Anniversary 550 Spyder (2004). Both sold with excellent service . They have both proved to be excellent cars . They only buy good cars for stock

Jeremy and Alistair,
Like other reviews I read of PCC before deciding to buy my car from them, I found my experience quick, easy, professional and trustworthy. After spending a couple of weeks searching for the right car, I'd finally settled on a Mini Coupe S. The lack of practicality I was looking for without being a big car. I looked for some more traditional car dealers and PCC came out top. The glowing reviews from other customers convinced me to go see the Coupe at PCC. Jeremy was extremely helpful and honest when discussing price and I feel that we both came to a mutually convivial price and condition. A week later, after PCC had put the car through a service and replaced some of the worn tyres, I picked up the car. Alistair made the pickup effortless, I felt I'd be well looked after. I've had the car for a month now and never had so much fun driving! It's running perfectly, haven't had any issues at all. Thanks again Alistair and Jeremy, I hope to buy from PCC again in the future.
Mini Cooper S Coupe
Top top experience buying a car from here, Alistair very helpful when I bought my Audi S5 even picked me up from the train station, great clean stock of performance cars definitely will go back to buy again.

Just a brief note to say how pleased I am to be the new owner of the BMW X5 4.8is, which has already travelled 600 miles and is a complete delight to drive, so many thanks for a great car.
BMW X5 4.8is
Excellently presented used performance cars. The owners are happy for you look around the cars by yourself. Offering a test drive if you like. I felt no pressure from either of them. Unlike some forecourts I have visited. I returned twice to view the car and test drive. Test drive was also provided a good route taking in both minor around town roads and a quick blast down the dual carriageway. Upon falling for the car. Their are happy to provide excellent service sorting out financing MOT etc. Even to say front tyres are a bit low on tread (passing the MOT) but we will replace them. They have even helped and advised on private plate transfer. Even on day I picked up the car I had misplaced my logbook for my trade in. Still happy to advise the quickest and best way to resolve. Overall the service and advice from this business has been second to none. Both have an extensive knowledge on the cars that they have for sale. Highly recommend and wouldn’t hesitate to use again or recommend.

Last week I bought my Subaru Impreza wr1 and I could not be more happy with it. It was exactly as described in the add. The two guys I dealt with were very helpful friendly non pushy salesmen and the service they gave was excellent. I would recommend this dealer
Subaru Impreza WR1
This is just a short, but sincere thank you for making my purchase of my XJ L Jaguar 5 litre such an easy experience. Suffice to say, I thought that the purchase price and the part exchange price were both very fair. With me going off on holiday and living 400miles away, all the paperwork, including the receipt and delivery of the cars seemed to go so smoothly. I arrived home to find my new car sitting in the driveway, absolutely gleaming.
May I take this opportunity to say, that I would be more than pleased to recommend, both your business and business attitude, to anyone considering dealing with you
My kind Regards

I am so happy I found this company on here! It was such a pleasure to deal with both Alistair and Jeremy, and I have never met such nice and honest guys at a car dealership before. The company is about 1h30m away from where I live in Windsor and the drive down was amazing. Pulling up to the place, it was really clean and looked very professional, which gave me a great confidence. All of the car's inside were amazing and it's clear that they only stock well looked after performance cars! The car I came to see was such a rare and beautiful BMW 335i that was super clean inside and out. Alistair and Jeremy answered every question I had and were extremely honest. On the test drive, i was actually allowed to properly test the car where as normally i've been told i'm not allowed. The after-sales advise has also been excellent and I have called up twice for advise and they were so helpful. The whole experience was amazing and I would highly recommend buying from them!! :)
BMW 335i Sport
Excellent dealer, I bought the car unseen from Aberdeen after a good conversation with Alistair. He kept me up to date with progress, had a few things sorted at my request and arranged for transport at a reasonable cost. The car was immaculate as he described, and he was always on the end of a phone if I needed anything. It made the process of buying a used car easy, stress free and I'm delighted with the experience. They went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the deal. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again
Subaru Impreza STi
Jeremy and Alistair are both helpful and honest, I bought an Impreza from them and the car was spot on, they had it thoroughly tested and a new mot on it. No messing about and got the deal done really quickly for me. Kept me constantly up to speed on what was going on, Nice and easy to deal with and will definitely use them again when I want to buy or swap motors ! The cars they stock all seem like top quality too which is a bonus ! 10 out of 10 easily. Thanks Guys !
Subaru Impreza Spec C
I have bought 2 cars previously from PCC (both UK Toyota Supra Twin Turbos) and on each occasion the whole experience from initial viewing to final transaction has been a wonderful, pressure free experience. I have provided a previous testimonial after purchasing my last Supra from PCC. I tend to regularly view their website on the off chance that something special may grab attention. That's exactly what happened a few weeks when I noticed an Aston Martin DB7 up for sale. I had no plans to buy a car but as I knew from previous experiences with PCC,the car would be in impeccable condition with an excellent service history. I rang Jeremy and booked a viewing and suggested that if I was interested then I would want to trade in the Supra that I had bought from him almost 3 years previously.On arrival, as in the past we sat down had a cuppa and talked about everything and anything. No urgency to look at the Aston as in mind I was going to have it and it was just a case of agreeing the difference that I would need to bay. This is where PCC differ from so many of the other dealers. Having viewed and then driven the car we concluded the deal very quickly we went on to have another cuppa and once again have a general chat about a range of topics. I picked the car up a couple of weeks later after running through the paperwork, service details and new MOT. It was a a every efficient,professional and definitely to be repeated experience. The drive home was incredible and I look forward to many more years of visiting PCC's website and premises to purchase further cars in the future.
Aston Martin DB7
I would like to start by saying huge Thanks for all your help!
I can not possibly recommend this company enough. From the moment I walked into the showroom from the time I drove away in my new car.
Firstly when I arrived at Performance Car Company, I was given my own space/time to have a good look round the potential new car. I was not hounded at all through out the inspection of the car in fact I was not bothered through out the entire process of buying a new car. The test drive and the local test route was perfect. As in not only did I enjoy the car, the local route allowed for the opportunity to test out the power, handling and braking etc .When I finally made my mind up and said YES I wanted to buy the car I was helped even further by the team, they assisted me with low rate finance options, as well as assisting me with the transfer of my private number plate. To be honest can not fault the team at Performance Car Company. I honestly can not think of a single thing to fault them ! Before purchasing my new car from them I had been to many different car showrooms and these guys are in a different league. I am aware this is a lot of kind words, however they deserve them they are true professionals ! Totally happy with the company from start to finish, and I'm loving the NEW car and would most definitely buy from your company again.
Thank You very much.

Just wanted to thank you for the service we received from yourself, before, during and after we bought the Porsche. The car is all we would want and has performed exceptionally in the three weeks since we happily drove it away. I would also like to thank you for all the assistance with sorting out Abbie’s number plate and the other stupid questions that I’m sure we asked. If we ever need another car we would certainly come to you first, however I doubt the Boxster will be replaced for quite some time!
Have a wonderful Christmas and we wish you well for the New Year.

It has been a few weeks now since I have purchased the bright green Focus RS from you and I am still loving it!
As you know from my previous poor experiences from purchasing an RS from elsewhere, I was a tad dubious when purchasing my next car but you made that experience a lot more pleasant.
Buying a car from you was so smooth and everything went well. I would definitely recommend you and the company and I will be sure to return in the future for another purchase.
Thank you for everything you have done and I really do appreciate your efforts.
Many thanks again
Rees (and the Green Beast Focus RS )
Many thanks for your honesty and integrity when doing business over my purchase of the XKR. Buying cars as we all know, can be a hazardous thing, however, I found dealing with you a very straight forward process and I was grateful for that!
I am really pleased with the Jaguar, even though it is an entirely different beast to the Touareg and has taken a little bit of adapting to. It’s an exceptional car and has been beautifully maintained.
Speaking of the Touareg, I hope that it finds a good home and that the new owner will treat it with the same care that I did.
Until next time!
All good wishes

I recently purchased a car with performance cars , the car was exactly what I was looking for a very competitively priced , the service I got from Alistair was second to none and I will not hesitate to use performance cars for future purchases , I can highly recommend them !!!
Hi Alistair and Jeremy
I'd just thought I'd message and say I am one very happy man after nearly 2 weeks of ownership of my True Red Mazda 3 MPS that I purchased from yourselves.
The car is perfect in every way and what I've always wanted. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with you both.
From the initial phone call before I came to look at the car right until driving it away; your service was second to none. Both of you were extremely polite and friendly, very well mannered and nothing was too much trouble. Everything was explained thoroughly and may I say I really enjoyed the experience!
Your passion for what you do definitely shows by how well your showroom and cars are presented. It was nice to talk to fellow car enthusiasts and people who are genuinely passionate about what they do; it wasn't just business!
I have dealt with some very strange and shifty car dealers in the past but my faith has totally been restored after coming across your establishment. And when I am in the market for my next upgrade, You guys will definitely be the ones I contact first. Especially as you deal in a lot of XJR's and that's what I have my eyes on next ;)
All the best

I just wanted to send you a quick email following our recent meeting and the subsequent purchase of the Suzuki Grand Vitara.
The service you provided was superb. The description you gave over the phone was spot on. The car was beautifully presented, all the documentation was available for us to view and you had the answers to all our questions at your finger tips.
The next time I’m in the market for a second hand car you will undoubtably be my first port of call. Thank you for giving me a renewed faith in the second hand car market, at least there is one good guy out there doing the job properly. Thank you.
Suzuki Grand Vitara
I bought my first performance car from this company - it was an excellent experience - I left with a fantastic ST220 Mondeo (the cleanest on the day at Simply Ford Beaulieu) and had no sort of 'sinking' feelings. All completely positive!
People say never trust a car dealer, but my experience with the PCC has led me to a very different conclusion!
Ford Mondeo ST220
Hi Jeremy and Alistair
A few weeks on from collecting my Focus ST from you, I thought I would drop you a line with a testimonial.
Over the years I have bought many cars, and briefly worked in the motor trade myself, so I know there is a broad spectrum when it comes to car sales and the experience you can have as the customer.
I had decided to replace my Jaguar for something a little more visceral, and with fond memories of my old Mk2 Golf GTI decided I would look at a hot hatch. After several months of homework, reviews and not a few test drives, I decided that the ST was the way I wanted to go. I spent another month or so shortlisting several that met my requirements – an ST3, full Ford history, low miles. I also did some looking around online for information about the sellers. This allowed me to cross several off my list straight away, but one that stood out positively from the information available was the Performance Car Company. I had checked several guides and knew what my current car was worth from a trade-in perspective, as well as what I should be expecting to pay for the specification I wanted. The ST from yourselves was very close to this figure, which was a reassuring start.
From the outset, all communication with you was superb. You were happy to accommodate me even though I was unable to commit to a day to come and see you until a day or so beforehand. On turning up, I was given plenty of time on my own with the car to inspect it in any way I wished, before being taken on a test drive that was clearly designed not just to flatter the abilities of the car but rather to give me as a driver a balanced view of how it drives across a variety of roads – the ‘roller coaster’ road in particular was very useful!
When we got back to the dealership and sat down for a chat, the price I was offered on the Jag was perfectly fair as was the price being asked on the ST, so we did the deal then and there.
On picking the car up, freshly serviced and with a new MOT, I found there had been an advisory on a back tyre so both had been replaced at no cost to me.
In the last few weeks of owning it, the car has never failed to put a smile on my face. The battery died last week but was the original one that the car was fitted with and could not have been forseen. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you both and I would happily do so again and recommend anyone looking at you as an option to pay you a visit – a breath of fresh air in an industry plagued by sharks.
All the very best

Hi Alistair / Jeremy,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for being a pleasure to do deal with in purchasing my first Porsche.
Whether Alistair through the viewing process or Jeremy through collection you made it feel a really special experience and that you genuinely cared.
In terms of the car it was exactly as described and you made me feel very comfortable to view and take as much time as I needed.
It's rare to find an independent dealer which inspires such confidence.
I'd certainly buy another car from you and would recommend PCC to anyone looking for a well sorted car.
Porsche Boxster S
After a week with my Golf R the smile has not gone from my face. The car is absolutely awesome to drive, it sounds superb and handles fantastically well in all weather conditions. I just wanted to say thank you again for your help and advice and it was a pleasure doing business with you and the Performance Car Company and I hope that we can do more business in the years to come.
VW Golf R
Hi Jeremy / Alistair,
Having viewed several cars of the same model prior to the one I finally purchased from PCC, I would highly recommend the company as an amazing dealership to do business with.
They description of the vehicle was 100% accurate.
There attention to detail and and personal service is what sold me the car. All too often you hear of unscrupulous dealerships and never of the genuine ones. This is
company that will not sell you a car if you are not happy with what you are looking at, there is NO hard sell. They would rather you went away without a car, than selling
you the wrong vehicle.
The level of service is 2nd to none. When I paid the deposit on the vehicle, they stated it would come with a years MOT, and if a defect was highlighted, even if it
passed, they would not sell it without being corrected. This I can personally vouch for, as my MOT highlighted 2 tyres close to the limit but still perfectly legal, these
were replaced with no further cost to myself.
When I look to replacing my car, you will certainly be my first port of call.
Thanks again for a great experience.
Alistair and Jeremy,
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for my car and the great way you guys deal with your business.
I will let you know when I need another car.

Jeremy and Alistair,
Thank you very much for the Jaguar XJR and for arranging to have it delivered to my front door in northern Scotland. Very happy with the car and your professional service.
I would absolutely recommend your company

Many thanks for all your help and not hard selling the car when I was there.
It is a truly great car, and presented to me in outstanding condition.
Thanks very much guys.

Just a quick email to say thanks very much for the great service I received. I've already recommended you to a couple of my friends who will be looking for cars in the near future. Not once did I feel pressurised in the slightest and it was nice to see cars that have been well kept and are inside, rather than sat under trees collecting sap and bird poo!
I usually change my cars every 6 months or so (which I have found is usually when I get bored and fancy something different) so I'll probably be seeing you in the new year or there abouts!
Thanks once again guys, was a pleasure!

Thank you for such a polite and friendly service....
Hopefully see you again soon, when I want a new toy....
Many Thanks Again
Audi S4 Convertible
Hi Alistair and Jeremy,
Nope, this isn't an SOS - this is a "how much do I love having a convertible" message!
I've been biding my time, in case I'm jinxing the roof after the palava earlier in the year. However, driving to and from work with the wind in my face is brilliant. It most certainly blows out the cobwebs and any remainders of office frustration.
My last car had one wash in four years. This one? Every fortnight at least, plus a wax. I'm not impressed that I've kerbed the wheels (the joys of midget spaces and living in a terrace with on-road parking) but I try not to look too closely.
This is another thank you, really. You helped me become one of those smug people that gets to say, "hmm, roof down day?!" Rest assured that I point people in your direction whenever possible - fingers crossed that one day, it lands you an extra sale...
I do hope that business is going well for you both and that you're also getting a chance to enjoy the sunshine, out of the office!
I have owned my car for 6 months now, I thought it's about time to said a big thank you for the help and service given when purchasing...... The summer has finally arrived so I have spent most of the time driving with the roof down, unfortunately I dont get to drive it as much as I would like too.
Before I purchased the car from PCC, I had looked, test driven and driven past forecourts stating "This is the best M3 in the country" I finally found one of the best in country right under my nose!!! In the perfect colour!!
It has been garaged since I have owned it and with small items and imperfection (not many) now been addressed, I can safely say without any doubt "The best in the country"
I will be sure to speak to you soon, as I would like a 3-4 year old M3 next year

I wanted to say how refreshing it was purchasing my Mercedes SLK350 from Performance Car Company in Havant and how effortless it has been dealing with them over the past few months. Being used to buying numerous cars by private sales I was somewhat apprehensive about car showrooms and their salesman, but found Jeremy to be extremely professional , warm and considerate to give myself and my wife, space and time to consider our options at the point of purchase. There was no "hard sell" or pushy tactics, only gentle reassurances with objective reasoning.
I called to confirm that I was interested in looking at the Z4 and the SLK with an aim to compare them. When we arrived Jeremy had kindly parked them side by side, keys in, ready to go. We ended up liking the SLK due to the excellent condition and high specification, but being of the school of not "buying the first one you see", we started hunting around the south coast and London for another via autotrader. After 5 other visits, and numerous terrible car dealerships and awful salesmen, we ended up back back at Performance cars to be welcomed with open "non-judgemental" arms.
Since the purchase, there have been a few teething issues, which would put any dealership to the test, but I must admit Jeremy did his upmost to help out and quickly resolved the matters with little stress and effort on my behalf. Jeremy even polished out some little scratches that I did by trying to remove some cement that was flicked up by a cement mixer on the motorway, and the results we're amazing. I can only recommend them enough and will only use them in the future - or as long as Jeremy is there!
Once again thank you kindly for your assistance in the past 3 months, and we're both looking forward to a great summer.

Good afternoon Jeremy,
Just to let you know the RB320 was delivered to my door at 9.45am by Lusotran, Excellent guy in everyway. Cant fault the whole experience.
A pleasure doing business with good honest people.
Many thanks once Again.

Thanks for making my purchase of the Brabus Coupe so Enjoyable. I thought I'd write another glowing testimonial for your website.
'Buying a performance car should be an enjoyable and exciting experience and that's exactly what I got dealing with these guys. From the outset, my endless emails were answered courteously and professionally, with absolutely no pressure to purchase.
I arranged to see the car and was happy to see it washed, waxed and ready to go, a no pressure test drive with Alistair sealed the deal with me, a genuinely nice guy. The car was as good as described. The Paperwork was handled perfectly and the handover was a nice calm affair with a thorough explanation of the car's features.
I will definitely be buying my next car from these guys, absolutely delighted.

Dear Jeremy and Alistair,
Many thanks again for your kind sales service and patience regarding the sale of the BMW 760i. We have enjoyed a few runs around the Petersfield area over the past few days, getting used to the feel of the car and the i-drive system.
Best Wishes for a Prosperous New Year!
Thanks for today. Delighted with the car and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to all my friends, family and Colleagues! Nice to deal with really professional people.

Hello Jeremy and Alistair,
I would just like to thank you both for my recent car exchange and taking my Westfield in part x. Your Service and dedication at what you do is very refreshing to see, and the way you presented the Audi to me in terms of finish was 10 out of 10, I couldn't be happier the car is awesome.
I will certainly keep your website on my favourites list and definitely recommend you to others.
A very Happy customer.

Just Wanted to let you know how delighted I am with my Supra. As you know my last purchase from you 9 years ago was also a Supra, a car I drove every day for 4 years and had no hesitation in providing you a testimonial. As soon as I saw the car that I have now on your website, it was an absolute 'must have'. The condition is stunning if it was 2 years old let alone 20 years old, and with less than 20k miles on the clock my decision to buy when I first saw it was instant. Such was my confidence in the cars that you sell, I didn't even feel the need to drive it until I took delivery. I remember you started it up and we just had a general chat about the history. No pressure, just a good, honest and genuine approach to selling. Everything about it is superb and I have had no hesitation in recommending PCC to friends and colleagues. I may never sell this car, such is the condition and rarity, but if I do you will certainly get first refusal and I will undoubtedly purchase something in exchange from you.
Many thanks again Jeremy fro an efficient and professional transaction.

I just wanted to say what a Fantastic experience it was to initially sell my Subaru WR1 to you 2 years ago. Then buy a Subaru RB320 from you now ( 2013 ) with an incredible finance package at the price I wanted.
I am so glad I found out about Performance Cars.
I would highly suggest that if you are looking for a Performance Car and a great finance package that you look no further and speak to Performance Cars, you wont regret it.
I will be back in a few years for you to find me my next car Jeremy and thats a fact.
My RB320 is truly a beast and I cant stop smiling everytime I drive it.
Thanks again for all your help Jeremy.

I just wanted to say how impressed I am with the standard of your sales service whilst deciding which car I should go for. You made me feel as if I was the most important customer on your books, even though I was not purchasing a car at the top of your price list. Your advice and non-pushy sales style has helped make me feel very happy with my purchase of the Porsche Boxster. I am really impressed with the car and it is as exciting as you stated, the standard of presentation of the car and the enjoyable 'buyer experience', will ensure that when I come to change cars next, I will definitely be looking at your stock list first and contacting you to help find my next car.
Thank you very much for everything.

Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything, very happy with the car. Thanks for your patience and especially giving me a great trade in price (wouldn't be able to get the RB without it) and also holding the car for me when you could have sold it!
Many thanks again
Subaru Impreza RB320
About ten or eleven years ago, having previously owned both a Mark II and Mark III Supra, I was determined to complete the set and get a Mark IV, arguably the best of the lot and certainly the most powerful. I didn't realise at the the time, that this model would be the most difficult to buy in 'bog standard' form', and I must have looked at probably half a dozen or so before I came to the conclusion that they were a very rare beast in an unmodified state. By chance, I happened to find the Performamce Car Company website and was delighted to see what looked like an unmolested red Mark IV Supra with an impeccable history which ticked all the right boxes. I immediately booked an appointment with one of the owners, Jeremy, and made my way to their facility in Havant. The car was absolutely pristine, drove like a dream and was destined to be mine as soon as I saw it. Jeremy was very professional during the test drive, gave me an end to end commentary on the condition and history of the car, and after some minor haggling, we agreed a price. we reviewed the associated paperwork which was perfectly in order and then set a date for pick up of the vehicle. When I arrived a few days later to take delivery, Jeremy couldn't have been more helpful and in fact was so confident of the condition and history of the car, made it clear that he wanted first refusal when I eventually came to sell it. Four years later, true to his word, Jeremy purchased the car from me with the same, personable attitude as before.
For the four years that I owned it, it was in daily use, back and forth to my place of work and didn't miss a beat during my entire ownership. By far and away it is the best car that I have ever owned, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Performance Car Company to anyone who wants to purchase a car safe in the knowledge that you are purchasing from experts, with a professional attention to detail and with a real passion for what they do.

Thank you for all your assistance with my recent purchase, it was a pleasure to deal with professionals who understand the details and documentation necessary when buying a used Ferrari.

Just thought I would drop you a line regarding the new Smart Car - it is great! Fun to drive and still a head turner, just like the Lotus. Downgrading is never a nice thing to do and I have been to a fair few garages, stomping about in mud and the rain, shivering in cold and smoke filled portacabins, just to see average cars. It was therefore a delight to find you. Your premises, presentation of the vehicles and relaxed customer service was a revelation! I know I wasn't spending a fortune, but that clearly didn't matter to you.
Without doubt I will be back to see you again when either I or my wife next change cars.
All the best for the future.
Would just like to thank you and your company for an easy hassle free transaction part
exchanging my 325i for the M3, your right it is a lot of fun.
I have and will recommend your Company.

Ali, many thanks for thinking of me reference the Audi S3, I am absolutely Delighted with it. Just had a run to the West Country and back in record time!
Jeremy many thanks for the test drive, sale and presenting the car for collection in first class condition, much appreciated.
Jeremy, Just a quick note to let you know how delighted I am with the car. It is everything I hoped it would be, it is an absolute pleasure to drive and I am thoroughly enjoying driving it. Also to say thank you for making the buying experience so easy and straightforward. I have dealt with many motor companies over the years and I can honestly say that Performance Cars is by the far and away the best and most customer friendly that I have dealt with. The service was first class, appointments were kept as agreed, everything that was promised was delivered and the car was ready to drive away exactly as you said it would be. I shall certainly make Performance Cars my first port of call when I look to change cars again ( and so will my son who was equally impressed) .

Jeremy, I felt I must just drop you a quick line to say how much I am enjoying my new Impreza Sti. Having now dispensed with the rose-tinted glasses worn when I saw it in your showroom, I am delighted with it. Having looked at so much rubbish, it was a pleasure to at last find a really nice straight car and a really nice straight car dealer, that does what he says he will do and who's adverts describe the actual car for sale and not a work of fiction.
All the best.

Dear Alistair, Just a little note to say we got home safe and sound, the car was lovely to drive home in and Andy absolutely loved it.
We would both like to compliment you and Jeremy on the way we were treated, everything was explained and we were not rushed into anything, you were extremely helpful and it was a pleasure to have bought the car from you.
We will both recommend you and your company, it was well worth the drive down to you.
Thank you again

Dear Jeremy, Just a Quick note to say how delighted I am with both the Mercedes CLK that I
bought from you and the aftercare service that I have received.
I telephoned last week to say the CD cartridge was missing from the CD multi changer and within two days you had sourced and sent a new one. Outstanding service and speed of response! Thank you very much.

Hi Jeremy / Alistair, I just wanted to say thank you for waiting a week till I could make it to travel the long way from Austria to the UK and pick up my little Lotus Elise.
Though it isn't my first Lotus, its always the same procedure till I see the car I have purchased for the first time ( sleepless nights ) and I'm not disappointed, the Lotus is wonderful.
The service you both showed in this deal was outstanding. Many thanks for everything.
Dear Alistair / Jeremy, Thank you for your time and efforts and professionalism in this transaction, and I hope that we may be able to do business again sometime in the future.
"Dear Jeremy and Alistair, Many thanks for providing the service and vehicles of request. I can always rely on your taste and accuracy when finding the car I need ( from all the gismos & gadgets). Many thanks for going that extra mile to always keep that smile on my face and delivering the exact car required. "

I just wanted to write to you to thank you for the way you dealt with me when buying my new car. You delivered the car to me on time, I had not even viewed it but you described it perfectly. I have to say the car is like new and must be one of the best cars I have ever seen and I am very fussy about my cars, and they have to be perfect;
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Performance Car Company to anyone as they have exceeded all my expectations and I will definately buy from them again"

"Dear Jeremy and Alistair
I just wanted to drop you both a quick line to express my sincerest gratitude for the exceptional standard of service I experienced dealing with you both during the purchase of my RB5.
Needless to say I am thrilled with the car the patience and willingness you both showed in accomadating my every request in a courteous, friendly and co-operative manner, including delivering the car to me in London. This was not only one of the most enjoyable motor vehicle purchases I have ever concluded but has also ensured that I will without hesitation be a return client should I have any future needs"

I would like to thank you for delivering this excellent car that is all I thought it should be. I am delighted with it and it was a pleasure doing business with you and your company."
"Dear Jeremy and Alistair
I just wanted to write to you to offer my sincere thanks for the way you dealt with me when buying my new car. It is not often that I feel compelled to write and thank someone for providing a good service but in this case I had to let you know how friendly and professional you both were. You actually made the process of buying a used car enjoyable! Having bought many cars from dealers in the past I have come to expect a certain level of service but the Performance Car Company exceeded all my expectations and I will definitely be back!"
I am writing to thank you for the excellent service you provided when selling me my new car. I am exceptionally happy with the way both you and Jeremy helped me, and you were both patient and professional throughout the whole process. Even when we had a few minor problems you were always around to sort them out and you went out of your way to ensure I received the best possible service.
The car is running superbly and it is a thrill to drive so I can’t thank you enough. There is no doubt that when I am on the lookout for a new car, or the Clio 172 becomes a tad too slow for me, the Performance Car Company will be the first showroom I visit."
"Finding a company with an exceptional knowledge of the market place, a detailed understanding of the product and an ability to listen to, and act upon the wishes of its clients is quite unusual. To find it within the pre-owned sports car market is possibly unique. This company have sourced, brokered and supplied my last two vehicles and I can not recommend highly enough their levels of professionalism, competence and service. Top Marques to the guys at Performance Car Company."

"I change my car about every 9 months and therefore have some experience of the used car market. I look at the dealer as much as I look at the car, and as a rule I walk away. Having decided to buy a car from PCC, I experienced a problem within 2 months of ownership. None of these problems were covered by warranty however PCC resolved them to my entire satisfaction. They are now looking for my next car and will be stuck with me for some time to come."
