Hi Well I got a convertible tr7 from these guys, payed top money for it. Very nice to deal with and helpful when buying the car. Was told the car had none of the faults these cars normally have But be warned once you have the car they want nothing todo with you. The car was had a long mot and had not been driven much from that mot, it had also had the brakes and full tune up done. Well after a few months and a chance to go over the car This is what I found Brakes a total mess, wrong shoes fitted on the back, front calipers bleed nipples rusted in place, so brake fluid not changed in years So I decided to sort out, recon calipers fitted, correct rear brake she’s fitted ( found springs missing and what was there fitted wrong ) also found master brake cylinder leaking, so had to replace that ( how did this pass an mot like this ), DANGEROUS After that I looked at the clutch mast and slave cylinders, found both leaking and again fluid not changed in years, so replaced the lot. Then did the cooling system, found coolant needed replacing and also very very low, again not looked at for years, now replaced also new cooling pipes fitted. Gearbox is next as it too needs new oil as it’s hard to get gears when cold, probably wrong oil in it too. Car has very very heavy steering, suspect not serviced for years again, another job todo, but did find new rubbers on steering column but bolts not done up correctly , found loose. DANGEROUS battery not secured property easily sorted. Found clogged fuel filter, easily sorted but doing this showed that the tune up was not correct. Oil light comes on now and again, this might be an easy job , But car sound ok, a bit tapped noise when hot, another job to be done They have offered to buy the car back, but reading other reviews, I’m not giving them the chance, I’ll get it all sorted over time This car was DANGEROUS, and how did it pass an mot And how can any car dealer have the guts to sell cars in this state, when they have charged top money for it I know they payed just over 4K for it at auction in December, I found this After I brought it. I payed nearly 6k for it, these faults should have been sorted, But they never bothered with it, OVERPRICED FOR WHAT YOU GET I have spent a lot on it just to get it safe, when it should have been when sold I know it’s an old car and I did not expect a perfect car, and it would need work, but I did not expect a DANGEROUS car for top money, just a good one. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS DEALER, YOU WILL END UP PAYING WELL OVER WHAT THE CAR IS WORTH, PLUS IT WILL NOT BE SAFE TO DRIVE UNTILL YOU GET SORTED YOURSELF, AND ALL THERE INTERESTED IN IS MONEY , THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN YOU AFTER YOU HAVE GOT THE CAR STAY AWAY BUYER BEWERE ITS YOUR MONEY AND ITS YOUR CHOISE. I FOR ONE WILL NEVER DEAL WITH THEM AGAIN VERY BAD DEALER, BUT NOT BAD PEAPLE, BUT ONLY INTERESTED IN MONEY
Q. What do you want from a classic car dealer? A. An honest appraisal of the car you are interested in. No pushy sales patter just a fair price and the mutual appreciation of owning an old car and everything that goes with it. Martin and James are experienced and both motor enthusiasts, What more could you want when buying your dream motor - flowers on delivery? Forget it, you drive away with a big smile instead. 😁
The day after I first phoned them, I took my car to them to sell on my behalf. I was pleased with the price they suggested. James took me to the station to catch a train home. The ads they created were superb and the photos showed my car off to the best advantage. I was told my detailed service history would be a great help as a selling point. A week later I missed my car too much! I decided to take it back! I was treated with such understanding and made to feel under no obligation to continue with my first intentions. When I went to collect it, I fell in love with my classic all over again. When I die, I want it to be sold by M&M Automotive, but until then I will remain the proud owner. My car was valeted and made to look better than I’d ever seen it before. It shone like new and they even cleaned my engine, rolling back the years to make it immaculate! I was so relieved no one had bought it before I changed my mind. I could never imagine a better experience than meeting and interacting with my new friends, James and Max. I wish them every success in their business. I heard of them by word of mouth and will tell all I meet about their superb customer service and friendliness. Seeing their showrooms took me back to the 50s, the days of my childhood. That alone was worth the visit.
I have just purchased a Triumph TR6 from M M Automotive, I purchased the car without seeing it because of Coronavirus! I dealt with Martin, James, and Max during the buying process, they arranged the delivery for me with a very helpful guy also called Martin. When the car arrived it was even better than I was lead to believe amazing condition in every aspect! it was even better than the photo,s showed, I can't recommend M M Automotive enough thank you to all you guys for making the purchase so easy and a lot of fun.

Buyers beware..... I recently bought a 66 mustang which they sent out without being checked. The petrol pipe was corroded and split and had meshed petrol everywhere, I was told that I was lucky the car hadn’t burst into flames. The Speedo wasn’t working and there was loads of issues. They charged me £680 for delivery and collection Of a car which was not Even roadworthy and so far have refused to refund this.

Thank you all who left reviews. I was about to ring to work out a deal on a Merc 190e sight unseen and have it shipped to Ireland because it looked so good in the photos, but now I just couldn't take that chance. I'll keep looking.

Agreed buyer beware Nice polite people, but car I got was not as good as discribed, Machanical work that was done not up to roadworthy condition
I found Martin to be extremely helpful, he described the car to me accurately over the phone and in the advert and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him and his company to others. A smooth and pleasant transaction Thank you.
Martin and James have been incredibly good. always quick to respond to questions, helpful and not pushy. we had an independent survey and it pretty much echoed their opinion. all through transaction they were patient and supportive, and continue to be. they go the extra mile. we don't buy cars often, but would go back and recommend their stock and service.
Have just had the car delivered, very helpful and careful delivery driver, I inspected the car, but was not able to test drive, as weather was so bad, but decided to buy anyway, have not been able to test the car as yet owing to the Corona Virus, but she starts and sounds excellent. The car is as described, as we all know, a classic is rarely perfect, and this car still needs some TLC, but I am very pleased. I found M&M communication to be excellent, always replying to my emails
M & M Automotive were very polite and good service with my part exchange, though delivery for my new car has taken longer than I expected.
I bought a 1965 ford mustang from M & M Automotive and the service they gave me after a few totally unexpected little problems was brilliant everything was sorted with no quibbles and the car now drives like a dream. I have nothing but praise for the service I received from them I would certainly use them again.
