A terrific place to deal with, Phil and George were genuinely interested in looking after me whilst there and through the process of buying my 997. Took time to talk about my sons car and discuss all things racing for 2 hours with outstanding hospitality. Other motor dealers could learn a lot about how to deal with customers form these chaps.

If anyone is looking for a Classic or excellent super car you must look at Silverwood Cars ltd Durham. We came upon this site almost by accident whilst browsing for a Mini Cooper, the quality seemed astonishing and they had just what we were looking for. We spoke to George, the Manager, who answered all our questions in a polite and honest manner. We met George and John on picking up our car (which was just as excellent as described) who made us very welcomed, and they were very courteous, and made our buying experience very pleasant. We were not rushed at all. An excellent reception.We would give 11 out of 10! Highly recommended.

Hi Guys, it was a pleasure doing business with you. Jen absolutely loves her little yellow bug. You have some fabulous cars in stock, most of which I would love to buy and the prices seem extremely reasonable when you consider the quality of work that has been put into them. I cannot recommend your team highly enough and I will be back when I have saved up some spending money.

I have been driving my glorious Z4 and it is everything you claimed. I am very happy with it - my whole family - and me - shuddered at the thought that I had bought a car unseen from someone I didn't know. I can reassure anyone else that buying a car from Silverwood is buying exactly what the adverts claim!


I am very much looking forward to many happy miles of motoring in the new car! Thank you very much to you all for looking after me so well whilst I bought the car. All good wishes, Michael.

Sue and I would just like to thank you and all the team at Silverwood Cars for what has to have been the most pleasant and straightforward buying experience we've ever had buying any previous cars. The Z3 is a dream and drives great being obviously well prepared for sale with great attention to detail. We both work in the motor trade and it's a joy to personally experience such dedication and care that's very often lacking in our industry. Keep up the good work! All the best for your future plans.
