Any one used Lancaster Lotus in Amersham?

Recommended Posts

Howdy,  has anybody used Lancaster Lotus in Amersham recently? Seeing if anybody has any feedback on them regards getting your Lotus fixed.

They are showing as an official service centre on the Lotus website but appears they are actually a Jaguar dealer, so I need to double check the info on Lotus website is up to date.  I've had a not great experience using a non Lotus independent garage previously and all the official Lotus dealers near me have long waiting times so wondering weather to go ahead with it at Lancaster or wait a bit longer for either Hexagon or Silverstone to be free?

I wouldn’t count on Hexagon as having much experience for service work, bought my car from them & apart from selling me the car they couldn’t cut soft top roof slots, supply a spare wiper blade or touch up paint, or sort out an alarm problem at handover (I had to go out of my way to pop into Hoffman’s on my home).

@2GOOD oh really, thanks for the feedback.  I just assumed they'd know their stuff as they are listed as a Lotus dealer and not just a serve centre also their stock is premium end cars. 

Will give Hoffmanns a call tomorrow and see when they can fit me in.   I can drive there in an hour but if they don't have a loan car available it could be a pain to get home.

Lancaster Lotus is no more. It was closed to Lotus a few years back. I had previously bought parts from them but the last time I tried, they told me they had stopped being a Lotus dealer.

Hofmann's are great, also the fastest Lotus dealership in the WORLD and I'm not at all biased! 

 

But no-one can spell it correctly :X:lol:

I’ve used them a few times before, they are now a Lookers (happened 1-2 yrs ago). Last time I took my car there they said they were still a Lotus authorised service centre. That was a few months back, and I always see a couple of other Lotuses getting serviced there. They are only 10 mins from me, so convenient to get jobs done plus their mechanics are Lotus factory trained.

Sorry forgot to update the thread.  Gave Hofmann's a call on Tuesday morning and they can fit me in next Wednesday and have. alone car for me to borrow.  So I make that a win win win! Proper Lotus dealer with a good reputation, shortest waiting time out of everyone I rang and loan car available making logistics easy.  I just assumed they'd be rammed due their reputation and popularity so didn't initially think to call them.

@azim thank you for the feedback.  Good to know they are factored trained and I have another Lotus option nearby if I need.

Not to mention - if you have the ability to work remotely there are worse places than the Hofmann's showroom to work from!

I tend to go get a nice coffee and breakfast in town and wander down to the Thames to have breakfast. Followed by a wander up the towpath to the lock. Nice way to spend an hour or two.
