BMW E38 728 - First, apologies for the delay in writing and sending you this review.
I would like to thank you ever so much for sourcing this vehicle and I couldn’t be happier.
I want to also apologise for being late on the day of the viewing and then running into the viewing time of the next customer on your schedule, I know it led to an awkward situation for you and thanks for accommodating us.
The car is everything that I hoped for, and better than I could have expected.
Earlier this week I was at BMW with my X5 for some maintenance work and asked them to take a look at the e38 (well they kind of suggested it because they wanted to get their hands on it). They then got 2 of their head technicians to look at it (to be honest they were queuing up to be the ones chosen as they don’t get many of the proper BMW’s of yesteryear in these days), and they spent 2 hours on it thoroughly inspecting the car, had it in the air, took it for a test drive and their summary was:
We are struggling to find anything wrong with it, nothing needs doing, nothing is leaking, squeaking or perished, no rust….and it went on…with only 2 minor things that they called out (slight play in the bush of one rear wheel, and the auxiliary belt was starting to get a crack or two) but apart from that they were so complimentary about the condition, body, mechanicals, and it’s an E38 with the bulletproof M52…
Both said if they had the money they would make me an offer that I couldn’t refuse and take it home with them.
I think that’s probably a better review than I could have typed myself given their experience in BMW’s and glowing report.
So thanks once again for such an excellent car.
I took it to the German Car Festival earlier this month and it attracted a lot of attention.
I do hope we get to do business again, my (small) collection is something I would like to gradually grow with quality cars of this nature.
Mr S Joshi
Sale of BMW E30 325 Convertible - I purchased my BMW from Andy at Old Colonel Cars. He is a specialist in such cars, so several years later, when I decided to sell my BMW, it made sense to ask Andy if he would sell the car for me. He arranged for the car to be sent back to him, made the car look as though it had just rolled of the production line in 1990, and marketed the car wonderfully well. So even with his fees for selling the car, I sold the car for more than I had originally paid for it. What a wonderful outcome. Many thanks Andy. I cannot recommend you enough. Buying or selling though you simply cannot be bettered !!
Mr S Jaffa
BMW 550 M Sport - After seeing the car I had been searching for, being listed on Old Colonel Cars, I contacted Andy through his enquiry form at the bottom of the advert that evening, within hours of it being listed.
Andy contact me straight away the next morning, he was very honest and helpful with his description of the car. I was confident in buying the car without going to view it based on Andy's great reputation. I didn't have the time to be able to view and collect the car, so Andy arranged delivery for me. It was great, very seamless and great communication throughout.
I would highly recommend using Old Colonel Cars
Mr S Smith
Sale of BMW E38 728 - Just thought I’d write and say thanks for making my car sale go smooth and easy.
I left the car in your hands and two weeks latter it’s sold, and I received a cheque.
Andy at OCC does it again, if only all dealers were as reliable.
Thanks again Andy
Mr R Courner
BMW E39 540 Sport - Andy, the 540 runs like a dream. The previous owner was mad to sell it, its a real gem. Thanks again for the deal and storage. Highly recommend ...
Mr S Whitiker
E30 BMW 325i Sport- Andy made the experience of my car purchase a pleasure. He pointed out small issues with the car which I may not have noticed. His guidance and advice were invaluable and instilled confidence in me and the deal. Huge thanks to Andy
Mr C Tate
Sale of BMW 650 Manual - Fantastic experience with Andy @ OCC. A real pleasure to deal with and true enthusiast. My car was prepared to an immaculate standard with quality pictures and write-up as is evident with all his stock.
I genuinely believed Andy would achieve a much more efficient, effective and hassle free sale of my rare manual 650i. This was proven to be the case and a price agreed / deposit taken within 48 hours of the advert going live.
All communication was excellent, no pressure applied and Andy was even kind enough to drop me off at the local train station no problems.
I can highly recommend OCC and will definitely look to either buy/sell again via Andy.
Thanks again and all the best.
Sale of Mercedes R129 SL500 - Having been impressed with Old Colonel Cars Instagram profile, the quality of the cars and the way they are presented, I contacted Andy at OCC. After exchanging emails with pictures of my beloved SL, he confirmed he would like to market the car for me. He prepared the car to a very high standard, secured the sale and added a YEARS MOT. His pricing was transparent and he kept me informed throughout. Would recommend ...
Mr N Mcmenemynick
BMW E30 Lux White - Selling my E30 - From the beginning Andy organised everything from car collection , valuation which came from a forensic knowledge of this model of car .
Then organising servicing, works and detailing the car to the highest possible standard .
Marketing the car to its proper audience. And then selling the car within a few days.
Andy did it all I really didn't lift a finger
Clearly a company for enthusiasts run by an enthusiast
Mr R Leach
Jaguar XKR 4.2 Supercharged - Andy was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish, and was open and honest throughout. The car was as described and very well presented, and Andy was also very patient and knowledgeable when I fired a barrage of questions at him. I would happily buy or sell a car with Old Colonel Cars again, and have no hesitation in recommending both Andy and his company to any prospective buyers.
Mr T Sugden
BMW Z4M Roadster - Hi Andy,
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for selling my BMW. You came recommended and I shall be passing on the same recommendation to people I know. Dealing with you has been easy and straightforward every step of the way, I’ll definitely be using your services in the future. Thanks again.
Mr S Carter
Porsche 996 Turbo - We travelled for over 2.5hrs to visit Andy to take a closer look at the Porsche 911 Turbo. It was worth every mile. So much so, a week later we did it all over again but this time leaving with the car. The journey back was a smile from ear to ear. Andy was great to deal with, being friendly, professional, polite and prepared to give the time with me the prudent buyer. Conversations, emails, texts were precise and clear. Andy was excellent, a real enthusiast and seasoned seller and driver of cars. He's straightforward to deal with and good company. You can be confident you'll have a professional, honest and enjoyable experience buying from Old Colonel Cars. Thanks Andy
Mr C Giles

Just to say thanks ,it was a good car when I bought it ,and it just gets better. Great service !
Mr G Ure
Porsche 997 - Porsche 997 Carrera 2. I’ve been looking for the right example of this car for months now. Andy is incredibly knowledgeable about the cars he agrees to sell - his description of the 997 was spot on, with the car exactly as described and very well prepared and presented. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him, and I would certainly buy or sell through him again. Thanks Andy.
Mr J Barnard
Porsche 928 Sale - Thanks Andy, confirm received- thank you for the excellent service - much appreciated
Mr J Hammerton
Porsche 944 S - A trip back to St Albans this morning to pick up the Porsche 944 S, after viewing this Saturday. Described as immaculate and how true that really was, in fact I'd say it was even better than described if I'm honest. A few minor faults made clear to me even before viewing the car, but considering the age and the iconic 1980's car that this Porsche is, really nothing to worry about.
On the 70 mile journey back home she drove faultlessly.
I've been to 100's of classic car shows over my years and this one, if not the best 944 I've ever seen.
Taking in its age, this car is exceptional.
A big thanks to Andy Miller @ oldcolonelcars for the deal.
If you are looking for a performance car, classic or modern, I highly recommend Old Colonel Cars.
BMW E36 M3 - After following Andy and Old Colonel Cars for many years, I called him when I finally decided to sell my M3, as I knew he would understand its value and appreciate its condition. He took the car in stock, and created a detailed advert with excellent photos and videos. This hit his website on the Saturday. By Tuesday the car was sold, thanks to Andy's fantastic attention to detail. I doubt I could have got close to the figure achieved by advertising the car myself. The whole process was a breeze. Thanks again Andy, great work !!
Mr R Bentley
Mercedes 190 Cosworth - A friend suggested I use OCC to sell my car. I am glad I did. Andy was professional and kept me informed at all the stages of the viewings and the sale. I was pleased that Andy got a buyer who will give this car the good home it deserves.
Mercedes 320 Sportline - Having viewed the Old Colonel Cars website as a potential buyer for many years it seemed a great platform to sell my Mercedes due to the quality of cars that pass through. Andy was great to deal with - quick, straightforward and communicative. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you!
BMW E46 330 M Sport - Hello, thank you for your service, everything was impeccable. I'd buy from you again with my eyes closed. Loving the car already, really pleased with it. Thank you again and all the best
Porsche 944 Lux - This was my 1st dip into classic car ownership. Very well presented car and when I viewed you showed great knowledge and. The car drives exactly as described so very happy, overall great service from Andy, very professional and personable, would highly recommend both Andy and the cars he sells
Mr M Clark
BMW E39 520 ES - From start to finish a 5 star service from Andy and Old Colonel Cars. Having no experience myself with classic cars, I was hoping to find a dealer who took pride in the quality of their work and the cars they sold, and who also prided themselves in transparency and honesty - I found all of this in dealing with Andy. Highly recommended to anyone seeking a quality classic car dealer and someone who is a genuinely nice guy to meet and do business with. Old Colonel will be my first port of call for anything classic car in the future
Mr H Kidd
BMW E24 635 CSI Manual - I collected my car yesterday from Andy, travelled from leeds on train where Andy kindly brought the car to me ready to drive away. What impressed me most about old colonel cars were how well the cars are presented and the descriptions are precise to the point with no waffle. I initially dealt with Andy over the phone where the deal was done and from reading previous reviews I knew I was in good hands. He also kindly agreed to store the car for me for a few weeks before I could collect it. The car exceeded my expectations and felt his description was spot on. On the drive home I was like a kid in a sweet shop and felt like bit of a celebrity with people horning and giving the thumbs up. You only have to look at examples of his previous sales to see the many gorgeous examples that go through his hands ( could say he has the best job in the world.) I’m sure I will be dealing with him in the future. Top bloke, very knowledgable. Highly recommended if your in the market for a rare pristine example.
BMW E25 635 CSI Manual - I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Andy at OCC for looking after the sale of my car. You made it so pain free and simple. We agreed a price, and you arranged everything. Wonderful experience and one that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to sell a classic car or specialist performance car.
Mr J Thanki
BMW E34 520 - Andy was a pleasure to deal with and the car is a quality example. Very pleased !!
Porsche Boxster - I purchased this Boxster and had it delivered today. Andy described it to me over the phone and it was better than he had said when it arrived. Fantastic car !!! First class service and easy transaction. Thank you very much
Mr S Mead
BMW E36 328 Sport Edition - I’ve known of Old Colonel/Andy probably since it first opened up and I’ve always admired the cars he’s had for sale (nearly bought a few on occasion) so when it came to selling my E36 I knew I wanted it to go to someone who would appreciate it. Having spoken to Andy I knew he understood what I wanted so it was a no-brainer for me to have him sell it. The whole process was completely hassle free for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy to any would be seller - a fantastic person to deal with.
Mr G Rai
BMW E36 328 Sport Edition - Hi Andy, thanks very much for your excellent service, Car delivered on time as promised, in perfect condition. Very impressed would not hesitate to recommend you to all my friends in the north. Keep up the good work. Kind Regards .
Toyota MR2 - Thank you Andy, the MR2 is everything you said it was and just as described. It is a welcome addition to my growing Toyota collection of which I attach a few shots of. Kind regards and keep up the good work.
BMW E46 M3 - I have been a regular visitor to the Old Colonel Cars website for many years, always impressed with the quality of the adverts, and the variety of cars sold. When the time came to sell my lovely e46 M3 I decided to give Andy the opportunity to sell it for me and to test the service provided. I am pleased to say that Andy’s approach to the process was exactly what I was looking for. Andy is a real enthusiast and didn’t just put the car straight on his website, he took the time to test/check the car he was selling to make sure it was a good example. The quality of the preparation and the advert description almost made me think I was making a mistake selling the car. I have absolute confidence in buying or selling a car through Andy at Old Colonel Cars in the future.
Jaguar XKR 4.2 V8 Supercharged - Buying a car 220 miles away you need to be able to trust the description and more so the person selling it - that is exactly what I have received when I have purchased not just one but now two cars from Andy at Old Colonel Cars.
A personable and trustworthy service was delivered and I am very happy with my latest purchase. Especially pleased as three days after purchase I have now taken the time to give it a thorough going over and polish after my journey home and it is exactly as described.
In short I would recommend dealing with Andy and trust him to provide an honest appraisal of the cars he sells.
Mr A Macgregor
Porsche 911 996 Turbo - Andrew I’m sorry I didn’t get back before but I’m so glad I came across your advert for the wonderful Porsche it was exactly as you said it was and I was so nerves having not seen it cos of the COVID regulations but thanks to your I have a Porsche 996 turbo to be proud of thanks Andy
Mr A Jeffries
Alpina B12 5.7 Ekat - Working with Andy to sell my Alpina B12 was a real pleasure all the way, and he makes it look so simple. Customers, clients and cars are treated with great respect all the way. I’m sure I will be back again, either as a buyer or a seller.
Mr D Ferguson
Honda Civic TypeR - Just letting you know I've got the car safetly delivered.
I really appreciate your honesty with all of the points and your communication in general.
It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Mr J Borland
BMW E60 M5 - I have just sold my M5 through Andy Miller and Old Colonel Cars. His presentation was perfect, writing a great advert. It was quickly advertised it in all the right places. Throughout the process Andy was very easy to deal with and I would defiantly use again, when either buying or selling a car.
Mr G Grainger
Alpina D3 Bi Turbo - I’ve just purchase my first ever BMW Alpina from Andy at OCC.
As soon as I saw the car listed, I was on the phone immediately and had a lovely conversation with Andy, who was kind enough to take the time to give me a great deal of information about the Alpina, he couldn’t be more helpful.
I decided then and there to buy the car, over the phone without needing to view it. Andy was kind enough to include a free delivery, as I live a few hundred miles away.
This morning the Alpina arrived. What a beautiful car! And I had great drive to work with a big grin on my face! 10/10
Mr S Shah
Alpina D3 Bi Turbo - I have been a regular visitor to the Old Colonel Cars website for years and when it came to selling my car Andy was the first person I contacted and as expected Andy’s advice and approach to the process was exactly what I was looking for. Within a few days the car was with Andy and when it came to the sale the description and preparation of the car were spot on and it sold quickly. From start to finish the sale was very straight forward and like many customers I’m sure I’ll be back again.
BMW E38 728 M Sport - I'm thoroughly delighted with my e38 728i M Sport just bought from Andy at Old Colonels.
It's the second car I've bought from OCC in the last 12 months. I buy from OCC because I have the peace of mind I'm buying a cared for modern classic with full documented history from a thoroughly nice guy who's made it his mission to match collectors with pristine cars. The 728i looks and drives like a new car yet is 21 years old. Detailed to perfection making picking up the car with my son a delightful experience. It's not a one off either - both times I've visited OCC there is always a small assortment of show standard low mileage modern BMW's waiting to be paired with new owners. Andy makes buying as easy as possible and certainly went the extra mile to help get me this wonderful e38. Thanks so much OCC. I'll have a smile every mile with my two classic BMW's.
BMW E92 M3 DCT - What a delight !!
My experience purchasing a car from Old Colonel Cars was excellent. Over the years I have bought a lot of second hand cars from Main dealers to small forecourts and this has been by far the best experience to date with honesty and transparency throughout which is rare.
I worked with Andy during the entire purchase. He was fast to answer all my questions and really took the time to share in the details and look after the whole transaction, in a non pressurised environment. I was a little skeptical at first as I was buying the car remotely and without seeing it in the flesh. The videos and extra information really helped to put me at ease. If I had any further questions they were answered morning, noon or night.
Andy’s pre inspection was honest and pointed out any blemishes to make sure there were no surprises once I received the car and arranged delivery to North Wales at a convenient time to suit.
I would highly recommend working with Andy to purchase your next vehicle.
Thanks Andy, I will certainly be enjoying my new car.
Mr R Jones
Aston Martin DB9 - I have just bought an Aston Martin DB9 through Old Colonel Cars, sight unseen ( due to Covid ), which is a risky thing to do; but the car was at least as good as described, and Andy was very helpful throughout. The car was delivered only 2 days after the agreement to purchase, and all went to plan. Even complications due to previous owner keeping the private registration were handled well by Andy.
Happy to recommend his services
Mr S Ashby
BMW 320 ED Touring - I have just bought an a 320 ed BMW from Andy at OCC. I travelled some distance to view the car and it was exactly as described. Andy was helpful and informative thought the process. I then drove home 200 miles in the newly acquired vehicle. It didn't miss a beat. Very happy customer. J
Mr J Johnston
BMW 760 V12 - Hi Andy, thank you very much for selling my BMW. A pleasure to do business with you and great to know the car's gone to a good home.
Mr V Kostadinov
BMW E30 (Ireland) - Car is fantastic thank you ever need reference the side of the pond feel free to use me any time
Could not bring me self to drive that car so we put in storage
If you get e30 sport gives a bell
Thanks again Graham
BMW E30 316 Lux Touring - It was with a heavy heart that I said goodbye to my amazing E30 Touring. I had bought the car off Andy when he sold my previous BMW E30 Saloon, also bought from him some 13 years earlier. The previous sale had been due to needing an estate and the latter due to the soon to be extended London ULEZ zone. Sadly these magnificent cars have to be 40 years old before they are granted historical vehicle exemption.
Andy is a professional and goes the extra mile. More valuable still, he is totally empathic and got my need that both my cars went to ‘good homes’. He even facilitated contact between us and in the case of the E30 touring the connection goes right back to the original purchaser in 1993!
Thanks again Andy, I hope to be back once historical exemptions apply!
BMW E46 328i - Andy I would just like to thank you once again for supplying me with the stunning e46 328i two weeks ago. I am pleased that you keep turning up with these beautiful cars with me now having bought from you frequently in the last four years . You also looked after me well when you sold my e39 very quickly .Keep up your excellent reputation.
Mr B Tennant
BMW E46 328i - Andy dealt with the sale of my BMW, the transaction was hassle free and was handled very efficiently from pick up to sale. I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking to sell their cherished vehicle.
BMW E61 535D Touring
Thanks for everything today. Delighted with the car. Drove back beautifully, just as you predicted! Only the weather spoiling the experience....
It's been a pleasure doing business with you. Another satisfied customer. I will keep an eye on your website for other possibilities!
Thanks again, Tim
BMW E46 330 M Sport - Just like to say thanks once again, for the recent swift sale on my behalf.
That will be the fifth transaction that I have had with you, two purchases and three sales, all of which you have made very easy for me, even although I am based at a considerable distance from your premises.
Your cars I have found, always to be exactly as described and advertised on your website.
In my experience, i would have no hesitation in buying again from you, or recommending "Old Colonel Cars" to others.
BMW E36 M3 3.0 - Some things in life cannot be bought and sold. One of them is reputation, Old Colonel Cars has quite a reputation for selling very good examples of often low mileage exemplary bmw and other select marques. So when an M3 in my desired spec and colour appeared on their site all it took was a number of messages between Andy and I for a deal to be done, no test drive no viewing as I’m 500 miles away, deal done based on photos, answered questions and reputation. Ffw five days and the car arrives, 100% as described, one happy customer and that reputation continues
Mr A Totton
Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 - Hi Andy, I just wanted to say a big thank you for looking after me when I purchased the Aston Martin. This car is truly amazing….. Your professionalism and personality made the purchase even better. You are a top guy and I will definitely be buying a car from you again. You are trustworthy and deliver exactly what you promise. Thanks so much Andy …see you again. Regards Terry (One happy customer !!)
Mr T havenhand
Rover 75 Connoisseur - Just a note to say thank you for finding and supplying such a good car, it's a real gem. The sale and delivery were very easy and efficient, everything was in place and easy to understand.
Mr G Pritchard
BMW E30 323i - I have recently purchased an E30 323i from Andy and I have to say that the process was first class.
Despite not having the opportunity to view or test drive the car, I decided to take the plunge and have no regrets whatsoever.
Andy sent through videos and answered all questions and the car exceeded my expectations.
Mr M Bakker
BMW E30 323i - I have bought and sold on three occasions through Old Colonel Cars and Andy has always been a pleasure to deal with. His cars are always first class and the service offered is discreet and professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to do business again
Mr J Barker
Volvo 240 SE Estate - Once again I've used Andy to sell one of my cars and I would never go anywhere else. I have bought and sold cars through Andy before and have never been disappointed. The cars are always amazing and often better than described and when selling my cars the hassle is taken away and the sales have always been swift.
Brilliant service and amazing cars, always.
Mr J Wright
BMW E46 M3 - Hi Andy, just a quick line to say thank you very much for the efficient and friendly way in which you sold my beloved M3. You got me a fair price and took all the usual hassle of selling a car away from me. I have no hesitation in recommending your service to anybody. Thanks again
Mr G Kendall
Alpina B3 3.2 Cabrio - Hello Andy - Just a quick note to say thank you for the professional way you handled the sale of my cherished car
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone who wanted to sell their car quickly and with minimum hassle.
BMW E28 M535i - I recommend Andy Miller at Old Colonel Cars to anyone looking to sell their cherished cars. I had a great experience with Andy selling my much loved M535i.
Mr G Bucklee
BMW M3 Competition Pack - Just recently purchased an M3 of Andy and cannot express how delighted I am with his quality of service. A true gentleman who is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the cars he sells. What myself and my partner admired about Andy was the fact he didn't pressure us into buying. He gave us plenty of time to go over the car in detail down to the paperwork and decide for ourselves if we wanted to commit to purchasing. He even kindly collected us from the train station when we came to collect the car. I will be sure to come to Andy again when looking for another car in the future. Thanks for your exceptional service Andy.
BMW 645 V8 - Andy I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the fantastically smooth transaction in the purchase of my super low mileage BMW 645Ci which arrived on a trailer today. Having viewed hundreds of cars online and regularly looked at cars on your site the minute I saw this one pop up I knew my search for a Grand was over. The car is in wonderful condition, fully as described, has an impeccable service history. I am delighted with my purchase but also the very straight forward and friendly way of doing business. Thanks Andy.
BMW E46 330 Convertible - I recently purchased This BMW from Andy at Old Colonel Cars, this being my second car purchased from them, the first a 3 series 2.8 a few years ago.
Both purchases made purely from descriptions over the phone with Andy, photos on website etc. Car was as described, now completed over a 1000 miles since delivery, this car goes like a dream.
For an 18 year old vehicle, the condition is well above many that I have seen (and I have seen quite a number).
Once the BMW was delivered, my old vehicle returned to Old Colonel Cars to be sold (which was sold within a couple of weeks) The whole transaction was effortless.
I would highly recommend Andy to anyone wishing to buy a good quality classic car , pleasure.
Mr O Robinson
BMW Z4 3.0 Sport Coupe - This was my first time dealing with Andy and it was an absolute pleasure buying the car. Any and all information that I needed was quickly provided. The car was as described in the advert. Drove the car back to Aberdeen which was an absolute joy. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy and Old Colonel Cars to anyone looking for a high quality car. Thanks again.
Mr C Endersen
Porsche 944 - Was sad to say bye to my 944 but couldn't be happier with the ease of sale and efficiency dealing with old colonel. Andy was a pleasure to deal with and clearly has it sussed!
Mr J Larner
BMW E46 330 Clubsport - For some time now I have been aware of the amazing cars that Andy at Old Colonel Cars seems to find.
When the time came for me to part with my own low mileage E46 there was no question who I would ask.
The whole selling process was very simple, and Andy is both professional and personable.
I was kept informed of how the transaction would work and the timescales. True to his word, my car was prepared
Sold and money transferred back to me in no time at all. I very much doubt I would have made more money trying to sell it myself
And of course this is far more convenient and secure with no strangers knocking on my front door!
Mr T Lewis
BMW E21 323i Baur - Hi Andy, the car is sublime. Thank you. And the delivery chap was very professional and pleasant.
Golf GTi MK2 - I would like to thank Andy for all his help and honesty in describing the car was told it was like a two or three year old golf and I must say it's closer to a car that came straight from a showroom
Very professional service would highly recommend him for anyone looking for a classic car.
BMW E28 M535i - It was great to meet you on Saturday. The car is something else, did not miss a beat on Saturday in the drive back. Looks really lovely. Thanks for all
Shelby Mustange GT - Thank you Andy for your assistance in selling my Shelby,Don't hesitate to purchase/sell your vehicle via Old Colonel cars.
bmw e31 840 - Thank you very much for supplying the 840 and then selling the 320 for me. You are extremely knowledgeable and made it very easy for us to do business. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for classic BMWS.
Mr M Fathers
BMW E46 328 CI - Had the car for a week now and just been out for a decent run in the 328. It drives like new !! You called me and asked if I am I pleased. Well if I say I am pleased with it, its an understatement. The car is very nice indeed and handles very well. Thank you again for your hassle free excellent service. Mark
Mr M Wearing
BMW E46 330 M Sport - I have used Andy Miller at Old Colonel Cars services twice now, both selling and buying.
When you sell, you agree a price, leave the car and paper work, Andy does the rest. When sold the money is payed straight into your bank account. While the car is with Andy it is covered by his insurance, and he updates you on the selling process as necessary.
When buying I found the cars as described, complete with a new MOT. Both drove as they should and were presented very well.
I have found Andy to be very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his cars.
He is very likeable and I would recommend him as a genuine trustworthy dealer.
I will certainly keep in touch and use him again when l next change cars.
A no hassle way to buy a car, and a pleasure to do business with.
I would recommend him to any one in the market for a used BMW.
Good luck for the future.
Mr R Corner
Mercedes SL500 - Andy Miller from Old Colonel Cars, used his specialist knowledge and contacts to prepare my car for sale and to then conclude a deal on my behalf. He put in a lot of effort and was very professional during the sales process, which he made very easy for me, taking care of everything that was needed. I have bought previously from Andy and also sold cars to him. In all my dealings, Andy has been the consummate professional and rightly earns his position as a highly regarded specialist trader. I have no hesitation in recommending his services and will no doubt buy from him in the future given the constant flow of interesting and high quality cars that he trades.
Mr S Graham
BMW E34 535 M Sport M - Andy has been an absolute pleasure to deal with both during the initial purchase of my E34 BMW 535i and when also selling it on my behalf a couple years later. Contact was prompt and I was kept informed throughout the process. I'd happily recommend Andy and Old Colonel Cars to anyone looking for quality classic BMW.
Mr M Liot
BMW E38 750il V12 - This was my first time dealing with Andy from Old Colonel Cars. It was a real pleasure buying a car from him. Any information I need prior to buying the car I was given, the car was described as the advert. Drove the car back to Edinburgh which was a joy. And look forward to future business with Andy (Old Colonel Cars)
Mr G Ure
BMW E90 330 D Convertible - I would like to say a big thank you to all at Old Colonel Cars. The process of selling my car for me made so much easier and stress free. Also constant updates. When they took my car all work that needed doing to bring the car up to the standard that only Andy and the team would sell at was carried out. This is not only impressive for the sale but also for anyone purchasing a car you know your in the right place. Thanks again all. Fully recommended if your thinking of either selling or buying.
Mr G Fortey
BMW E36 328 Sport - Andy did a great job of facilitating the sale of my concours E36 328i Sport. Due to his reputation for providing only the best quality cars he was able to find the right kind of buyer, ensuring that it went to a deserving home. Highly recommended
Mr A Mummery
BMW E30 325 Sport MtechII Manual - I spent a few years looking for a genuine E30 Sport and looked at a total of 5 supposedly immaculate cars. Unfortunately the adverts proved to be misleading and cars not as stated in adverts..
I came across Old Colonel Cars a few years back and was amazed at the quality of cars sold.. Missed out on a couple of cars sold but I knew this was the place I was going to find my dream car..
Then one Sunday night the car I wanted was there on my laptop screen.
I phoned Andy the next day, he gave me a full rundown of car, in great detail. I arranged a viewing and the car was 100% as stated.. No hidden gremlins, a total time warp of German engineering. Bear in mind I'm a very fussy BMW geek..
Highly recommend Andy Miller, he's very knowledgeable and a genuine nice guy
And the company used to deliver my car (Herts Car Transport) was spot on to. Car arrived presented fully valeted and all documents as stated in advert present..
When the time comes I will definitely buy another car from Old Colonel Cars.
Mr S White
BMW E46 320 Msport Convertible - Thanks for delivering the BMW Msport to me today. The car is in such great condition - in fact exactly as you detailed on you web site. As I mentioned to you, a very good friend of mine recommended your business as a specialist BMW supplier. A very good recommendation indeed - your service has been first class from the moment I made contact with you by text out of working hours. A really smooth transaction and the first time I saw the car was today and it was perfect. A really good, high integrity service - highly recommended.
Cheers for now - I’m sure our paths will cross again in the future.

BMW E39 520 M Sport - Just a brief note to say thank you for all your help with my recent purchase from you of 'the E39'.

Having studied your website along with a friend for some time now and having read your many reviews I was quietly confident we could do business.
From my initial contact with you I was confident the car would be as described and I was not disappointed. Your reliability and service matched your honesty and you now have a new Scottish following.
I have already recommended you for the future.

Mr D Kelly
BMW E9 3.0 CSL - Old Colonel Cars are an honest dealer. Not many of them left in this business. Andy Miller is a man of his word, we purchased a lovely BMW off him.
We had a minor issue with the car a couple of weeks after sale, Andy Miller paid for the repairs, without fuss under his 1 month warranty, allowing us to fully enjoy the car.
Me, family, friends will be doing future business with Old Colonel Cars.
Great, honest car dealer.
BMW E30 318 IS 16 Valve - Andy gave a very accurate description of the car which helped greatly with deciding on a purchase and establishing trust. The service was outstanding due to quick & pleasant communication and the delivery, which was asap. All resulted in 100% customer satisfaction.
Mr D Meehan
E30 325i Convertible - After a few months of searching for the right BMW E30 325i I found one for sale with Old Colonel Cars. I had not heard of the company before but could only find positive reviews on the internet. After calling Andy, to my surprise he gave me a very honest and accurate description of the car. Living in Ireland it was not a matter of just dropping in to view but I paid a deposit to reserve it and arranged my flights to London. The car was exactly how Andy had described and one of the best examples I had seen. It was also priced right given the outstanding condition for its age. I bought it that day and drove it home to Ireland. I have now owned the car for a couple of months and it has not let me down. Thanks Andy you are a true gentleman and I would not hesitate to buy another car from Old Colonel Cars.
Mr P Niall P - Ireland
BMW E39 523 SE - A fantastic, friendly service. The car was beautifully presented. I look forward to upgrading to a 530i Sport in a few years!

Mr K Cawley
BMW 635 - Andy has sold cars for our family and over the years we have bought a few from him. If you want the best Bmw's available Andy is the person to go to. Andy's stock is better than most, the cars are always as described, well priced and most importantly Andy is honest and trustworthy. Fantastic dealer the family will no doubt use again and again.
I bought a B10 Alpina from Andy some years ago and have recently sold it through him on commission.
I am abroad and the sale was handled at long range so to speak with no hassle or drama whatsoever.
I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to this dealer.
BMW E46 - Just a note to say many thanks Andy, you made buying my Grey E46 and selling my car a peace of cake , the car drove back to North Wales without missing a beat, I Have already told my friends about you hope they use you, once again many thanks
I was so pleased to have discovered Old Colonel Cars as I was asked to arrange the sale of my late Uncle's much treasured BMW. When the car was collected Andy handled everything in a sympathetic and professional way, and whilst it was difficult to see the car go, I was reassured that it would go to someone who would get much pleasure from the car. Kind regards David Mason
BMW E30 318 Convertible - Thanks very much for such a hassle free,professional sale of my E30 BMW .I highly recommend Old Colonel Cars whether buying from you or selling through you.Best Wishes
BMW E46 - It was a pleasure selling my car through Old Colonel Cars –Andy was spot-on with regard to the best strategy and price to market the car and managed to find a buyer for my within just a couple of weeks at a price I initially would have thought unobtainable – a credit to his presentation of the car.

Ford Capri 1600 GT - Hi Andy, Just wanted to thank you for the great Capri. It was a pleasure doing business with you, very professional, and car's description and photos were dead accurate. You helped me out splendidly with your aftersales service as well.
Can recommend your company. Best wishes
BMW E39 523 - Just a quick note of thanks for the superb 523ISE that I collected yesterday, the 120mile test ride back home went well, with a very smooth drive indeed with no problems. I thought my 520I was a good motor, but this is even better with the auto box and larger engine.I think my next spend will be for a cherished plate, just to make it perfect
BMW E39 523 - The car was exactly as you had described it and so nice to drive. We left Fanhams Hall at about 10:30 in the morning and the car did not miss a beat all the way back to bonnie Scotland. We were sitting at home by 7:00 having made two long stops on the way. The car returned 33MPG and did not use a drop of oil on the journey. It was a real pleasure doing business with you and as I said before the car was all that I expected and exactly what I needed.
BMW E34 535 Msport - Just dropping you a mail to let you know I got back to Jersey fine, car was brilliant on the way down and I look forward to putting some more miles on it if we have some decent weather over winter!
Andy, many thanks for arranging the successful sale of my BMW. It’s never easy to part with a cherished classic and it was a reluctant decision so I was nervous about entrusting it to someone to sell for me. I needn’t have worried; from the outset you were interested in the car itself rather than anything else and I felt that you really cared about selling it for the right price to the right buyer. That’s what you went on and did. I found you straightforward and helpful and I’m very happy to recommend you to others in a similar position.
BMW 635 CSI - I had the absolute pleasure of dealing with Andy Miller during the recent purchase of my stunning BMW 635CSI. The quality of service combined with his laid back friendly approach to sales meant the who experience was pain free. His knowledge on BMW's is exceptional as is the range of cars in stock, I will certainly be keeping an eye out for any future cars for sale at this dealership."
E46 Msport Coupe - Bought a BMW E46 04 plate from Andy. This is the best transaction of part x and buying that I have experienced, Love the car. Would recommend Old Colonel Cars and would defiantly return. Thanks You
Emilio and Alison
325 Convertible. I drove the car with the top down around the Kent countryside, in the sunshine. It was fabulous. The car handles so well and it is a pleasure to drive. I can't thank you enough for your continued guidance and for the way that you have handled the sale. It is so refreshing too to deal with someone whose integrity shines through. You have met this a pleasurable experience throughout. I am more than 100% satisfied.
Thank you very much ! You took all the hassle away of selling the car. A pleasure to do business with you !
Mr M Dunham
Andy is professional, trust worthy and a pleasure to deal with.
He provided me with an accurate valuation of my BMW E30 and went on to sell it for exactly this amount within a month of it being on the market.
Old Colonel Cars will be my first port of call in the future, both when selling any of my cars or when buying my next classic BMW!
Andy, I wish to emphasize my thanks and appreciation for the rapid but smoothly
executed sale of my car recently. I really value your knowledge of the market in which you operate and your skill in pricing and achieving the agreed objectives.
I would enjoy using your services in the future,
I, and the rest of the family, are very happy with the E30 cabriolet-the kids love it!
It is just as you described and the whole purchase experience was pleasant and smooth.
I am sure we will be doing business again in the future!
Made it to Wales and now back. The car has been an absolute pleasure and my mate in Wales, who's a big car fan and a mechanic, reckons I've done very well.
Thanks again for everything!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping me through my first used and classic car purchase. You made everything very straight forward and explained where I was lacking in knowledge. I have now caught the classic bug and I will be back for more in years to come.
Just to say many thanks for the professional and pleasant way you have dealt with the sale of my e46 convertible. You made selling my car a joy rather than a chore.
All the best
I have both bought and sold BMW's through Andy at Old Colonel Cars and each occasion has been a straight forward easy transaction. The cars bought have been just as described. I have no doubt it will not be long before we do business again! Many thanks Andy!
I recently purchased a lovely Volvo C70 from Andy having seen the car advertised on line !
Andy was not only very helpful but also very understanding as my old car had been written off in an accident and he was happy to reserve the car
and had to wait for my insurance company to sort everything out.... never a quick process
I was not able to see the car prior to purchase and I relied totally on the information I was provided
Andy was very helpful and gave me details and photos of damaged and problem areas
He organised delivery and I have to say he was 100% honest about the car so I am absolutely delighted and would call him first should I ever need a car again. Andy is open honest and sells good quality value for money vehicles
Andy recently sold my car for me. I found him to be very professional, the car was presented for sale perfectly and was sold almost immediately. I was very happy with the price achieved and I am sure the buyer was delighted to purchase a rare find, Andy seems to attract great cars. Once sold the payment was forwarded promptly. I have no hesitation in recommending Old Colonel Cars, thanks Andy. ( Andrew Somerset)
Just wanted to thanks you, its not often nowadays you can enjoy spending money but the whole process was clear and enjoyable . You made it easy plus what helped was a superb product . Hope its the first of many
"Andy has recently made me a extremely happy E30 owner. We participated In a super part-exchange which I was very pleased about indeed.
Andy offers a very professional and friendly service throughout and I can't thank him enough for how helpful he has been.
Thank you Andy! "
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the may years of professional service you have provided to me,
I recall my first trip across the water to purchase an E30 and could not believe how you collected me from the Train station and sold me a wonderful car, Over the years of building up my collection and trading in and out of different BMW models with you I could only describe your service as first class in every way.
As an overseas collector I would recommend your services to any perspective customer anywhere. "
Martin Smethers (Ireland)
"I have bought an E36 and sold a D3 and most recently a E46 convertible through Andy at Old Colonel Cars and am more than happy hence the number of transactions. The process with each was very straightforward and I would recommend them to any BMW fan. Jan Neville - BMW fan"
"I had heard nothing but positive things about Old Colonel Cars before I bought my 5-series back in 2011, so when the time came to sell her Andy was my first port of call. Andy made the whole process of selling a car simple, effective and hassle free. Frankly I didn't have the time to deal with the multiple time wasters and scammers you often get when you advertise your car privately so having Andy sell it on my behalf was an invaluable service."
I would just like to thank you for the professional service you provided when selling my BMW for me. The marketing was excellent, the car was sold within two weeks and the finances were conducted as agreed.
I would be happy to recommend you to any of my friends looking to buy or sell interesting cars."
"I have recently had the pleasure of using Andy Millers services when wanting to sell my Classic BMW. Andy offers a friendly & professional service, fully explaining how he will sell the car.
A price will be agreed, which after allowing for commission, will mean achieving an amount both parties are happy with. Shortly after being advertised a purchaser was indeed found!
The whole procedure was smooth & seamless, I would highly recommend using 'Old Colonel Cars' for a stress free selling experience."
