CAll us to find out our TEST DRIVE EVENT coming soon- 01371 87 6622- News article posted ( 16.11.2013)4X4/AWD prices to increase with bad weather forecast November 12, 2013
Following the strong winds and rain of the last week, forecasts are now predicting a drop in temperatures as the UK truly heads into winter. This has prompted leading vehicle remarketing company, British Car Auctions (BCA), to remind motorists that 4x4 and AWD values are likely to rise as temperatures drop. Indeed , looking at the latest data supplied in the market place, 4x4 values are definatley moving up with October showing an increase of 7.3 % up on September.
"The onset of bad weather usually marks an increase in demand for four wheel drive vehicles and that generally pushes up average prices" explained the Editor of BCA Used Car Market Report. "And, despite the fact that temperatures were unseasonably warm in October we've already seen prices creeping up as demand increases."
Average values have increased by £948 compared to September and are £841 ahead of September last year - These are the figures stated so it's important that we keep a close marker on the used AWD market for our customers. We have been buying new stock for both dealerships to ensure that we protect our customers from market price rises but we can only do so much. We've got more new stock arriving every day at the right price so if you are in the market and looking to buy before the end of the year, we think it's a sooner rather than later decision unless you postpone until March/April 2014 when the prices should settle down again.
It's a fast moving market place and we are always trying to be one step in front to benefit your pockets and our sales so if you are thinking or deliberating over a purchase, then call us so we can advise and point you in the right decision.

Article posted 12.11.2013Used New Model Subaru Forester road test October 29, 2013
2013 Model New Subaru forester with just under 4000 miles with Touch Screen Satellite Navigation - 2.0 BOXER DIESEL engine with 150 ps and 350 Nm Torque and 47.9 mpg on the combined cycle make this car a rather enticing prospect. Understated and hugley capable off and on road, this road test was one we were looking forward to. We were lucky to attend this car's UK launch at the Lowther Estate so we know what it's capabilities are off road (simply amazing to be honest ) so the ROAD test was our mission.
Engine is smooth, quiet, powerful with mid range pull in all gear ratios' a pleasure. It's low down torque is better than others we have driven ( Freelander, Kuga, CRV) maybe not as quiet as the Honda but as smooth for sure. Really nice equipment on this car too. The seat warmers are just lovely now the weather has turned and we had the Pan roof open (well it wasn't raining) and it just gives you a little feeling of freedom as we cruised through the Essex countryside. Very precise streering with lots of road feel to it and the all round visibility is excellent. Parking is no problem even though this is quite a big car as the reverse parking camera is pin point accurate and the raised seating position allows you to put this car wherever you want it on the road. As we drove through some very pretty villages, you can see above the hedges and have a great great view of the road ahead.
All in all a quite pleasant hour or so on the road. 45.2 mpg was our average for the journey so those numbers look pretty realistic for the ownership experience and we think one of the best AWD cars on the road today - Dont take our word for though, call us and have a drive yourself - tell us what YOU think.
Piers and Mike -road testers for the day ! (wondering whether a Ferrari dealer needs our services ? -actually we will stick with Subaru with the bad weather coming - might be a bit busier.)Used MG 6 at amazing LOW PRICES October 28, 2013
Perkins of Rayne have an unbeatable offer available on USED MG 6 cars for sale - With prices starting at just £6995 for this superb used car ,we think this is the best offer of 2013 available. We have managed to secure 10 used MG6 models as S and SE variants with mileages from 8000 to 15000 miles on the odometer. It's a superb motor car that is well worth consideration if you are looking for something a bit bigger than a Focus but not quite as big as a Mondeo. It almost sits in a class of it's own and with the balance of the manufacturer 60000 mile, 3 year warranty applicable on all the cars we have in stock, it makes this deal very attractive. We also have some LOW RATE FINANCE offers available on all of these cars.

New Subaru Outback SX Diesel Automatic Review October 11, 2013
The New Subaru Outback 2.0 D SX Lineartronic is due to arrive in just a few short weeks and we will have new cars in stock and a demonstration vehicle available from day one.
We have been lucky enough to drive the car already just before the press got their hands on them and I must say it's a superb addition to the range of Subaru vehicles. Quite a few improvements have been made from the previous model car with the obvious one being the new Lineartronic 7 speed automatic CVT gearbox. The handbrake has been moved to a central position which is what our customers have been asking for along with a all new instrument cluster, Piano black/carbon fibre dash, New seats that are half leather as standard, 17 inch gunmetal alloy wheels, new front grill, new headlamps cluster with bigger fog lamps, body coloured bumpers and side skirts and roof rails.....all as standard.
The emissions are good too. 166g per KM Co2 Rating for the Lineartronic and 155g per KLM for the manual, 44.8 mpg combined for the Lineartronic and 47.9 mpg for the 6 spd manual and with 350 Nm of torque the engine performs beautifully.
With new electric power steering and imporved damping, double wishbone suspension on the rear , there is less body roll and handling and ride is improved. Cars will available very soon and delivery is currently 3 weeks but that will soon take longer as the first stocks sell.
Here is a little MSN review we found on the internet which I think is a reasonable take on the car.
