The Fiat 500 is one of those cars that command cult status. An icon of the automotive world, the Fiat 500 won the hearts of the people when it first rolled off of the Italian firm's production lines back in the ‘50s. In a history that involves several incarnations of the model, the Fiat 500, albeit in a new guise, is still as popular as ever.
Designed to be a practical and inexpensive car that was versatile, it was rear engined, had four seats and two doors. Visually very small, it’...

DRIVE SMOOTHLY Avoid jolty driving by using gentle acceleration, analysing the road well ahead of you and slowing early ahead of traffic lights to potentially save you from stopping.

Many of you will recognise Phil’s smiley face as one of the lovely salesmen at our St Michaels Road site.
The years seem to have flown by, and Phil is in a bit of disbelief that he has been with us for a quarter of a century. Working alongside our founder David and his colleague Graeme who has now been with us for 33 years, Phil joked “I’m still considered the trainee!”

Second-hand doesn’t mean bad...
