    ok, i have already done a search and found the obvious places to go to in london.... im going on saturday and trying to go to as many car shops/showrooms as i can...im staying in the holland park area and so far i have this list of places not to far away.

    Coys
    hall and bradfield
    Hendon??(seems to have a nice collection of modern super cars)
    Park lane itself.../the dorchester and what not...

    also theres chelsea cars.... dont know how far it is from central london

    i have a few questions still...

    is hendon motors just west of berkley square? or is that hendon st. not way?
    also any other places i should check out, and there location please, mostly classic car places are what im in to.

    and does anyone know where there is a Maserati 300S that i can view in london or the surrounding area???

    thanks seth mac

    Hendon Way Motors are about ten miles North of central london - so probably not too convenient - not far south of Coys is a big mews full of old car dealers : Queens Gate Place Mews - most of the others have been discussed in recent threads including access by public transport - have a good trip

    There's HR Owen Sportscars on Brompton Road. nearest tubes are Gloucester Rd or South Kensington. Usually full of Lamborghinis and Ferraris.

    Listed as "HR Owen Sportcars London" on their website www.hrowensportscars.co.uk

    Driven past Chelsea cars a few times. They had one 355 in the last time I went past but everything else was farely mundane. Personally I wouldn't bother making the trip unless they've changed their stock.

    True but they are at the back of Joe Macari who has a few tasty items so we are told ! And there's that other lot next door to Chelsea Cars - but a pig on public transport I would guess

    Try searching on this site - every few months there's a thread on what to see in London

    Aston Martin on Park Lane had a rather nice DB7 Zagato in the window last time I passed, if that's your bag.

    London Transport Museum I think has just shut for renovation for a few months

    The Science Museum near Coys has some cars and planes in it if I remember correctly

    There's one on Cannon Street, which is fairly central. Use either Monument or Cannon St tube stations.

    Ask their customers.....

    There's a large showroom near Marks & Spencer Baker Street - Portman Sq ?

    With great respect there are more exciting cars in London than the new A Class !

    Wow, is that actually a showroom? It always looks boarded up when I pass it.

    You should wait till you go to Munich for that one, they have an incredible dealership there which dwarfs anything we have in the UK

    Oh right, it may well have done then. Brown paper/boards on the insides of the windows, there may have been a 'We have now moved...' notice but I was unable to see clearly because of the, err... dark.

    I'd suggest Clive Sutton, 151/153 Park Road, St John's Wood, very near to the Lord's Cricket ground. One of my favourite car dealerships in London and very friendly. They had an XJ220 out there the other day plus Enzos and stuff. Well worth a look.

    Also theres Belsize Motors in Kilburn but its a bit out of the way. Check

    Happy spotting!
