“When I approached Barry to market my car I had some concerns despite reading all the positive feedback about him. I need not have worried, from my first meeting to the conclusion of the sale Barry’s open, honest transparent approach was like a breath of fresh air, very much appreciated by both myself and reinforced by the buyer of my car. He is very Knowledgeable, helpful, approachable, professional at all times and fulfilled all his obligations promptly and effectively”

Andrew, Greenford, Middlesex

Hi Barry, I hope you are keeping well. Unbelievably a whole year has passed since I bought the car from you. I thought I’d let you know it has passed the MOT with no problems. It was described by the tester as a “very sound car”. With thanks and best wishes,

Kind Regards,


Jean-Louis, Belgium

It was a great pleasure for me to buy a MGB at SMR , Barry and their

friends gave me all the details i need and they were very friendly .

I ask them to check the car before to drive to Belgium and the MGB was

perfect in the terrible winds this 15 february .

I have a lot of confidence with them and my next MG !! will be an SMR

MG , thanks a lot for all .


David, Borehamwood, Herts

“I have been an SMR customer for the last 8 years, where the team have provided an excellent service for my my vehicle, not only in terms of top class repairs and servicing but also in storing my vehicle for me for long periods at a time. At times when I have needed advice on how to proceed with repairs, I have been provided with a balanced view and even though I have recently sold my car, I will continue to recommend the SMR team to friends, family and colleagues, a great service!”


David, Northwood, Middlesex

‘’Barry and his colleagues are some of those lucky people who make a living from their hobby. This means they care about what they do, they are good at it and are interested enough to be flexible about ways to fix individual problems on MG’s that have their own little quirks. I’d certainly be confident about recommending them to others.’’


Chris, West Norfolk, UK

Barry, George & Neil are among the best people you could possibly hope to meet when buying an MGB. On the day I went to see what is now my MGBGT, I was met & returned to the railway station and treated courteously at all times. There was no pressure to buy, just a willingness to help.Items on the car agreed as needing attention were dealt with promptly and the car was delivered to my home just one week later.Two of my friends already had MGs that were sold by SMR, and their positive opinions have certainly been confirmed.




Andy, Norwich, Norfolk

Just home Barry. What a lovely drive that was.

Nice to have met you and your fabulous cars.

Kind regards,


Geoff, Hockley, Essex

Hi Barry,

I feel I must write and say how pleasantly surprised I have been with the whole process of buying a classic car from SMR.

Nothing like dealing with a car salesman, more like making a friend! Very refreshing in this day and age.

The icing on the cake was the fine weather you managed to arrange yesterday when you delivered my MGB.

I look forward to enjoying the car with the confidence that help and advice is readily available if needed.

I would recommend anyone thinking of buying a classic to contact you and sample the excellent service for themselves.




Nyasha, Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset

I can’t tell you how happy I am with your service Barry. Thanks for everything. Looking forward to receiving the hard copy. The Saab is a hell of a drive I have to say, very impressed! All the best sir.

Kind regards,



Brian, King’s Lynn, Norfolk

To: Barry at S M R.

After searching for an MG BGT for some months, I found S M R and Barry. When speaking to Barry on the telephone I was happy to find that his knowledge of classic cars so was vast, which was a help to me as I my own knowledge was limited. I found him to be professional but also friendly in his manner, so decided to visit S M R. It certainly is a great place to view and talk about his range of classic cars. Barry made me feel welcome and spent much of his valuable time with me and I learnt a lot about the cars without having to listen to the “hard sell techniques” like some other car specialists. I am now a proud owner of an MG BGT and I am delighted with it and look forward to many years driving with my new found friend. So thanks Barry and long may you continue to delight other enthusiasts with your love for these classic cars.

Regards Brian
