Who knows anything about whats going on here? The particulars are on the web with Hallams and there is chat about them going under. Would be gutting as they are great for window shopping if nothing else! Apologies if merely fuelling rumour, but they appear to be gone!

Not surprised how they speak to their customers and also too busy to return a call!

Pity, I've popped in a few times to window shop some very very nice cars but I must admit I did think how could they keep going.

Hmmm, I'm another one who had visted them and tried to discuss a Ford GT with them but got no real response so stayed away.

Yep, looked it up on CH as well. And if they had winding up notices would show also?

Young Tom Hartley jnr had tweeted it was under, but he got it wrong for Clive Sutton, so who knows.

Blimey - another fairly established name going down the pan.

I passed the showroom last weekend, devoid of cars sadly. The BP associated with them appeared locked up too, presumably part of the same operation?

Word on the street is that some SoR cars were spirited away along with their own stock never to be seen again by the cars' owners...

Also allegedly they were open for business right up to the Saturday night when the plug was pulled and the stock was put on a transporter, so I hope no-one has lost a deposit or worse.

Not a surprise - they sold my BMW M5 earlier this year and it took 2 months to wire the funds to my bank ..

Mangoletsi on the A50 seem to have picked up the Subaru franchise for the area.

So back in business then?

They have lots of cars listed for sale on Pistonheads.

I drove past the showroom at Monks Heath yesterday (26/10/12) and it was completely empty still.

They're in liquidation and they owe creditors nearly £0.5m, including a number of other dealers.

It would seem that a number of the cars they had are in a showroom at a Knutsford garage - well the same Ferrari 360CS now appears twice in the PH classified

You got off lightly considering the list I've seen.
