Guy Francis specialist cars

As some of you may have read on these forums i had an awful experience when i went to buy my first evo ,an 8MR at Motorhub in Keighley this Friday, the turbo failed on a test drive,it leaked coolant all over and the clutch was slipping,terrible.
Well today i went to view a 6 GSR at Guy Francis specialist cars of Birmingham, the car looked good in the pictures online and after a friendly phonecall i set off from Leeds to go have a look. After a terrible drive down through all the roadworks i was expecting much the same as Motorhub,rough cars and lies, but on arrival i was amazed, Guy's cars were all pristine and so well presented. I was met in the forecourt by two members of staff who were very friendly and were happy to show me around the evo's on display. Myself and Katie, my other half ,were both offered drinks whilst we were looking at the cars and i was given a tour of the workshop where the cars are prepped ,i was shown an evo 4 being prepared for sale and talked through what they do to the cars to bring them from import up to sale standard,very impressive stuff and nothing to hide. I then took the 6 GSR i was interested in for a test drive and it was all i hoped for, nice and tight with no rattles or knocks and great fun to drive. the car was sold before i even returned to the garage, it was so good i didn't even try getting any discount. The car comes with UK converted speedo and delimited,undersealed,cat 1 alarm fitted with certificate, new cambelt and serviced. This is how buying an evo should be and i cannot recommend Guy Francis cars enough

Hi, I bought a black evo 5 of Guy 10 days ago, a black one, it wouldv still been in his garage when you went to see your car, getting delivered tommoro, Guy was fantastic, car was amazing, he was extremely helpful, I mean I even ordered wheels from usa, and it was no problem for him to keep car in garage while wheels got delivered, every question I asked, no matter how big or small was answered, Guy is a proper gent, and only sells top quality cars! A pleasure to deal with

I saw your car, very smart and those wheels really suit it.

Thanks, all the evos in the garage where same standard, exceptionally clean underneath and bodywork, plus like you said he does full service, underseal etc, like yourself, I was that happy with car I had no problem paying full price, you get what you pay for, and the cars and Guy are how things should be when your buying car, I'm sure you will also have 3 month parts and labour warranty with car as standard as well, I intend to keep car for many years, and because of high standard of car/s that's going to be easy, all fresh imports and pure quality, enjoy your Evo! Got a great car to start with!
