I thought bit would be good to email my dealings with Diane and her company Exclusive Classic Cars
I was pondering on buying another car and when you trawl through the classified adverts or look in at dealership there isn’t a lot to inspire most of the modern stuff all looks the same you have to look hard to find out what make it is
Anyway I came upon there website and had a budget and low and behold there it was a Mercedes CLS 500 with 31,000 miles one owner car with full service history I took to the phone and spoke with Diane and asked the question condition of the car and her answer was as good as new the closest thing to a new car initially I took this with a piece of salt anyway after a couple of days I purchased the car and I paid for delivery which arrived a couple of days later and I have to say condition wise Diane was spot on it looks absolutely superb
I did have a couple of small issues but Diane was fair and honest I took the car to an independent who carried out the work to which Diane paid how many car dealers would do that without a fight
If you are in the market for a real good car and I mean real good give these guys a shout you will not be disappointed I will be using them again and telling people about them because dealers like this deserve the light to be shon upon them
Thank you Diane
I will be in touch again I promise
EMAIL RECEIVED 6/6/2023 FROM DAVID KELLY - MERCEDES CLS500 2005
I just wanted to thank you and Dean for the whole experience right from the first phone call I made. Regarding a very low mileage Japanese imported 1998 Jaguar XJ6, I considered.
You got back to me as soon as you could just a few hours later. Which gave a good first impression.
You were both very understanding throughout and didn't keep me hanging on regarding communications/updates, this was excellent!
Taking hold of the car was going to be a mission doing it by myself. But the option for transporting the car to my address overcame that.
So far the car has been going well (and I think it will for years to come!)
I will gladly recommend Exclusive Classic Cars Ltd to anyone who is on the lookout for a low mileage car.
I will certainly consider coming back to you myself in the future, for possibly my next 'summer car'.
I must say in regards to a pleasant customer experience, main car dealers can't provide this. As I don't find them to be genuine. But I think Exclusive Classic Cars Ltd quite easily achieve this. And I have enjoyed the experience - because it is genuine.
Thank you once again for your excellent service! It has been a pleasure!
Hope to see you again. Perhaps for a V8??
EMAIL RECEIVED 6/6/2023 FROM DAVID - JAGUAR XJ6 1998
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you very much for the excellent service that you provided me with for my recent car purchase. Excellent communications and the car, in the flesh, was exactly as described on your website – if not even better.
Arranging for the transport of the car to me certainly made my life easier. I sincerely doubt that this will be the last car that I buy from you but next time I wont bother coming to see the vehicle before purchase – your description is more than good enough for me.
EMAIL RECEIVED 5/6/2023 FROM MR THOMSON - JAGUAR XJSC
Just a quick note to thank you and your staff for a very easy hassle-free transaction. When I viewed the car for the second time, I mentioned a couple of things that were so minor I didn’t really expect them to be resolved. The car was delivered yesterday as promised and looks excellent inside and out and even the two minor things have been corrected.
Without hesitation I would purchase from Exclusive Classic again and have no issue with recommending you to anyone

Hello Diane (and everyone else)
It has been a pleasure buying the jaguar from you and your team. You were all so pleasant, helpful and patient. We are absolutely delighted with the car. We really appreciated that you delivered it to us and that it was put into our garage. the garage door is being widened in the morning!
Should we ever decide to change the car you would certainly be our first port of call.

TEXT RECEIVED 20/04/2023 @ 11.20 AM FROM MR JOHN TIPPER - JAGUAR XJ 5.0 LUXUARY 2011
My experience of your website and then dealing with you is very positive. The condition of the car was, if anything better than described and imaged. At the moment I could be described as like ‘a dog with two tails’. That I could describe a seventeen year old car as indistinguishable from ‘brand new’ is remarkable.
My only comment is that too many S types have serious corrosion of the sills hidden behind the plastic trims. I was alerted to this risk by a friendly garage owner and perhaps the condition of the sills and floors could be a strong selling point for you.
Buying from you was a very positive experience and I am willing to act as a ‘reference’ if necessary.

I just purchased a 2005 Jaguar XJ8 from Exclusive classics and am delighted with its immaculate condition.
The car is a Japanese import and I was initially wary of buying such a vehicle but after Diane took me through it's very comprehensive paperwork history and explained the process involved I was confident I should go ahead. Anyone considering such a step should have no fears when using her company.
I have to say, the car with its low 17000 miles is in first class condition and has been presented in immaculate, show condition by Diane and her team.
Diane and her staff are polite, knowledgeable and professional. They are a pleasure to do business with and I will have no hesitation in doing repeat transactions in the future.
EMAIL RECEIVED FROM MR CHISHOLM 14/4/2023 - JAGUAR XJ8 2005
As a non-mechanical, non-technical car enthusiast, buying a classic car is very much a matter of trust in the honesty and integrity of the seller, and I am delighted to report that, for the second time, Exclusive Classic Cars have proved to be utterly reliable, honest and trustworthy. Ten years ago, I bought a low- mileage MGZT which I still have, which I still love, and which still turns heads. It has proved to be a thoroughly reliable and value-for-money car, which I shall continue to cherish.
I have recently bought a low-mileage Jaguar from the company and, once again, the vehicle is superb and the service was excellent. The car is immaculate and was beautifully presented, and the process of acquisition was smooth-running, easy and faultless. I would not hesitate to recommend Exclusive Classic Cars to anyone who wants an absolutely exceptional vehicle in first-class condition from a company you can thoroughly trust - many thanks to Diane and her team!

as possible,and nothing was a problem for the keen,knowledgeable staff.
All in all a very pleasing experience.

To all at Exclusive Classic Cars I want to thank you for the way in which you handled my recent purchase from you of my Jaguar X-type. The pictures, information and description on the inter-net were honest and first class and, when we spoke on the telephone everyone has been most helpful. Also, when we came to see you to view the car, Dean was most courteous and helpful and together we took the car on a test drive. Arrangements were then made for the car to be delivered to our home and it duly arrived on my birthday. Could not have been better.
Thank you all again for making the whole transaction such an enjoyable experience.
EMAIL RECEIVED FROM MR BRIAN HIRST - JAGUAR X TYPE - 27/10/2022
Good morning Diane,

Many thanks once more

A family run business that is a real gem. Tucked away in Burton-upon-Trent, Diane and her family could not be more helpful and polite. My wife and I have taken delivery of a superb car and hope to enjoy it for many years. If only all car dealerships could make the transaction of cars as pleasant as the experience we have had.

“I have an excellent experience buying a car from Exclusive Classic Cars in Burton on Trent. During the viewings they were knowledgeable but also let us look over the car in our own time. They welcomed the independent inspection we organized and fitted in with the assessor’s busy schedule. In the end we bought a great car at a sensible price, with the professional delivery being the icing on the cake. Many thanks to the super team at Exclusive Classic Cars”

I can confirm that I bought this Jaguar in May 2022. I found Diane Bowman who was prompt, courteous, helpful and a plesasure to talk to. Although the car is not new, it is in absolutely excellent condition in all aspects and truly matches the photographs and description in the advert. This was echoed by the independent delivery driver who commented that all the cars at Exclusive Classic Cars are just as good if not better. They also gave me a bit of discount by halving the normal delivery charge. I have no hesitation in recommending them to potential buyers, they will not be disappointed.

Purchased my Jaguar S type from Exclusive Classic Cars. Located in Burton on Trent. Excellent family run company to deal with. The car was an import back from Japan and was in Mint condition with only 20k miles recorded.
This is something they specialise in an have a selection of Jaguar models,
with low mileage. If you want a Jaguar or other Classic cars give them a call you won’t be disappointed.
EMAIL RECEIVED FROM MR LAST - HERTFORDSHIRE 04/05/2022
Please find my feedback as stated
"I had been looking for a good, clean, low mileage S-Type Jaguar for some time before finding just what I wanted, being advertised by Exclusive Classic Cars, on Autotrader.
Being a Japanese import, the car is excellent throughout and the mileage is very low. All of the concerns regarding paperwork and the import process were taken away and dealt with professionally and efficiently by the team so I, the customer, only sees the benefits.
On the day of collection, all of the paperwork and the car itself were well presented and the service throughout was friendly and professional. Very pleased, great value for money and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Exclusive Classic Cars to friends and family."
Thanks and all the best for the future.
