Please DO NOT  buy a car from this dealer .I did a deal with  honest martin from this company for a mercedes sl which the advert when as follows 
Last 2 months its had brakes and pads front and rear ,Genuine front wings replaced ,Full wax oiled underneath .New magnesium wheels with tyres .New roof and last of all new stainless steel remus exhaust and a Full respray .Sounds good and to be honest i didnt expect it to be perfect as its a old car .So it did the stupidest thing going i arrange to to the deal ( swoping 3 cars for the 1 ) .The car come on a trailer and at a first glance i had that dreaded feeling that it was about to go dreadfully wrong .If it had had a spray job they should sack the person responsible .Wings were the genuine ones off that car which are rusting hard top wouldnt come off ( he wanted 300 quid extra for this ) trim missing in the inside .Why it had looked like it was waxoiled was due to the head gasket pissing oil ( as i found out later ) .So i rung him up and when i said i wasnt happy he said it was a old car and yes i totally agree but i was going by HIS description on the advert .So i took the car to a merc specialist to see about the oil leak and got a good but desturbing report back .The pads on the front 80% worn Rear pads 90% worn Head gasket gone .Exaust badly repaired and rear backbox badly fitted .Gearbox oil leak and to put these right was a total of  915 pounds .We did come a agreement to refund my deposit but has not come across with it .Now is not answering my text .So please dont waste your time and money or you will regret it
