It only looks like a shaft of Winter Light

quality used cars for sale in Coleford, royal forest of dean, Gloucestershire since 1992

Philosopher Albert Camus once said: “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer”. It can be difficult, on dark and dreary days, to find that moment of sunlight. It happened to Pete Smith a while back in Lydney, when he spotted a flash of gloriously summery yellow pass by. A car, of course, but not just any car. Pete knew immediately that it was one of the Vauxhall Corsa Special Edition VXR styled models, and for a moment or two, was lost in admiration.

Not surprisingly, you don't see many around. Therefore, you can imagine his delight when we managed to secure three of these VXR lookers to offer at our Forest of Dean based Coleford showroom. It's just one of many terrific marques and models of used cars we have for sale here in the heart of Gloucestershire.

This limited edition Vauxhall Corsa (VXR styled) 1.2L petrol with manual transmission is officially styled in flaming yellow and we have two white VXR styled models available too, the flaming yellow truly does offer a flash of summer though. It's a 63 registration at just over a year old, with a single owner and a mere 12,000 miles on the clock. The midnight black roof, mirror caps and alloy wheels provide a stunning contrast to the brightness elsewhere. Inside, you'll find a multi-function steering wheel, air-con and electric mirrors, multiple airbags, a CD player and so much more. A comprehensive Vauxhall warranty is in place until November 2016. This superb vehicle is on offer for a typically keen Pete Smith price of less than £9.5K! The white VXR styled Vauxhall Corsa models start from £7995.

Whether you are seeking used cars for sale in Lydney, which is just over seven short miles from our showroom, or elsewhere throughout Gloucestershire and the surrounding areas, it will pay to make a quick visit to view this stunner. Once it's gone, it's gone, and as a limited edition, you might not find one being offered again for a good while. Of course, we always have a stunning selection of other superbly presented used vehicles in stock as well.

Where absolute quality is a racing certainty

As our showroom here in the beautiful Forest of Dean is only around fifteen miles from Chepstow, at this time of year we know all about the hype for the terrific Welsh Grand National Day just after Christmas. It also tends to lead us into some horse-based analogies covering the vehicles we sell.

Therefore, like all of our models, the stunning selection of quality used BMWs we stock can certainly be called thoroughbreds! We know that they come from the best of stables, and stride along with the stunning smoothness you'd expect.

Enough of these equine references; you'll be keen to know that we regularly have a selection of a dozen or more superbly presented used BMW cars for sale here in our Gloucestershire showroom. As you'd expect, they do tend to move on pretty quickly, therefore it will pay to check right now and see if the one you want is just waiting for you to make your choice. Incidentally, if you don't see the specific BMW you are searching for, please call us on 01594 811180. With our wide range of industry contacts, we expect to be able to locate any model for you.

As we write this blog, our BMW stock includes a simply stunning Le Mans Blue Metallic 320D Sport Plus Touring that's available for less than £15K. You might prefer the sleek elegance of a Black Sapphire 320I M Sport Convertible, or a Titan Silver X3 3.0 D M Sport Auto which includes Navigation. There's a 325I SE in sparkling graphite, and it's a single-owner, low-mileage beauty - and it's available for less than £10K! You might prefer an X5 4.4 Sport, and this model has a certified gas conversion.

If you live in Chepstow itself, or anywhere across Gloucestershire, the Welsh border lands or beyond, you'll surely want to trot down to our showroom and then test these superb used BMW models at the gallop!
