Went to view the car at the East Lancashire Car Centre after seeing it on Auto trader. It was probably the most expensive one on AT but it was the spec it is looking for. Met Adam at the garage and the car was waiting to be viewed and looked stunning. Went for a spirited test drive and we we're happy to proceed with the sale. Although they wouldn't really budge on price, they did agree to help for the full MPerformace kit for me at cost price, which they arranged to have done for the local Williams BMW showroom. On picking the car up, I noticed a problem with the roof spoiler which hadn't bonded correctly, but Adam personally arranged for the car to returned and the problem rectified. The roof spoiler was refitted and have enjoyed the car very much since. 10/10 service and communication.

Just been to buy an Audi from East Lancashire Car Centre, Adam got there did a check on the car online and turned out that the colour of the car is bronze in the V5,when the car is blue,apparently that’s a mistake from Audi when they issued the V5,but the guy tried to sale me the car to fill up the colour change section so when I would’ve want to sale the car and the new owner would’ve caried out a car check will appear that the car had the colour changed,he was late,I got there first ,he told me that they’re moving and that’s why they’re are keeping some of the cars there,reading other reviews in here seems like this lie goes on from years ago,they have quite a few cars but into a big shed hidden away with no signs showing their business name,paid a £250 deposit and he refounded back Totally wasted Saturday we had,after traveling 200miles round trip ,would stay away from these guys.

I bought my Golf R (20th June 2018). I’ve driven 400 miles in it, not a single problem, love it! I was given a good deal on my Golf R which I traded in (if you’re after a Golf R around 2010, buy it! I’ve looked after it). I had private plates on my trade in Golf R. I’ve had the car for just over 3 years and was told I could change my plates online, so I assumed I had plenty of time, however, when I tried to make the change online, it was rejected. This was due to the fact that the car had at some point in the last 5 years not been taxed (I bought my Golf R from a garage forecourt which is probably when it wasn’t taxed). The only way the plates could be changed back is to send all the documents via post to the DVLA, it takes approximately two weeks. This would mean I wouldn’t have the log book at the time of exchange. I decided to rely on the good nature of the new buyer. I left a note and everything to make the change, including a cheque made out to the DVLA in the pack I was handing over to Adam. When I arrived at the lock up to make the purchase, Adam said he and his boss didn’t want the responsibility of me possibly losing the plate, so they have allowed me to send the log book off, then return it them once the changes have been made. (I don’t know many places that would trust you enough to do that). Conclusion: What better service can you ask for! Ok, the storage unit is a little off putting and hard to find (up a dirt track at the back of the mill) but Adam will direct you. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, buy their cars!

I have just purchased my new Audi A4 Avant, and what a service!! I didn't read any reviews and seen the car over autotrader, straight away I called and made an appointment. I was a little lost and ELCC kindly directed me to the unit where my car was stored, it may look a little rough around the edges 'building/area' sort of speak but inside me and my friend were like kids in a candy store! A range of exceptional motors, Looking around the car I was going to purchase the gentleman dealing with me kindly showed all the documentation and spares that came with the car and was open about little defects such as stone chips which were expected with the mileage and year of the A4. Once I had a nice test drive I placed my deposit and explained my situation with my finance and waiting for an insurance cheque. ELCC happily reserved my car and said whenever I was ready to just give them a call. with excitement for my new motor, I think I contacted ELCC serval times with updates and each time the phone was answered and all questions answered in a very friendly and genuine manner. As you do I rushed down the first chance I could, not giving the poor dealer time to give the car a full valet which they had promised even though the car was very clean already. On that promise ELCC gave they took my car to the garage and replaced it with fuel 'you cant be fairer than that'. I would extremely recommend ELCC to any of my friends and family for any future cars, please don't be put off by the location. This garage will go that extra mile to accommodate your needs which they have for me!!!! Best of all I have the motor I have always wanted, a perfect spec and price and warranty for peace of mind.

Bought my 2016 330d Touring from ELCC. After months of searching for the right car and numerous visits to various BMW dealerships i came across one with these guys and thought I would take a look as they had quite a few high spec models I was looking for. On the day I couldn't decide between 2 cars they had as they were both exceptionally clean and with good specs so after going away for a coffee I returned and bought my car of choice. The cars were both in better condition than I had seen previously with other dealers and the part exchange was fair too. Highly recommend these guys and would definitely use them again when the time comes.
