“Bit the bullet and went for the up grade , chose Bamford rose as from all the forums etc they seemed the people to trust my car with and keep the engine safe with the upgrade . What a great bunch of staff and mike had the kettle on as soon as my feet touched the workshop floor (after a 2.5 hr drive just what I needed). sat in the waiting and admired the view and before I knew it was all done. The difference mid range was noticeable and the sound were amazing along with stealth mode early in the morning
Would highly recommend the upgrade and along with the staff, you can’t go wrong. They also reprogrammed my wing mirrors for no extra charge.”
“Mike offers his advice and does know his Astons. I’ve been using Bamford Rose for 5 years to service my DB9 and also do enhancement works.
Mike tells me what he recommends and how much it will cost. That’s the customer service I need.”
“I fully endorse the many complimentary testimonials on this page. It is good to know, when you have such a technically complicated car as the Vanquish, there is Mike or Adrian of Bamford Rose at the end of a phone who know my car and have a knowledge of the marque which is unsurpassed.
I particularly appreciate the time they take to explain step by step the options to keep the car tip top. There really is no comparison with the service at Bamford Rose to that of the franchised dealers, at BR there is a real enthusiasm for Aston Martin and at the end of the day again, by comparison, the bill is very reasonable. If you have a Vanquish its a no-brainer!”
“I have now used Mike and his brilliant team at Bamford Rose for my last 2 services on my 2006 Vantage. I feel the advice and information provided is always excellent and based on your actual car and its requirements, rather than just reading out the AM Service manual. Not only will he discuss every aspect of the car with you, he is also happy to provide additional information that you wouldn’t get with AM.
I’d rather drive my car a 200-mile round trip to use their services than 10 mile round trip to my local AM, I think that speaks volume in how much I would rate them. Owning an AM was never going to be cheap, but at least you know that with Bamford Rose, you’re getting great value for money. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to other AM owners.”
“The service, support and advice offered is market leading.
My father purchased a Vantage V8 and discovered Bamford Rose via Pistonheads forum. They completed some performance improvements and servicing.
Having inherited the car and being a relative newbie to sports car ownership – the guys at Bamford Rose were forthcoming with advice and removed the intimidation about owning a performance car.
The quality and pride or their workmanship is superb and I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Thank you for helping me to enjoy my pride and joy!”
“I managed to find a pristine 2007 DB9 Manual with sports pack but unfortunately, within 2 weeks of ownership I almost returned the car to the main dealer as the gear selection was really difficult and ruined the drivability fun factor.
Mike and his team at BR installed a lightweight flywheel and twin plate clutch which transformed the car and turned it into the GT Sports car that I expected.
Project ‘Blofeld’ grew and grew with switchable suspension, engine upgraded to 520bhp, big brake racing kit, bespoke embroidering, 2013 side skirts and special badging.
After 4 glorious years driving they then sold the car for me to an enthusiast in New Zealand.
A perfect service from start to finish.”
“I drive circa 2 hours each way to leave my car with Mike, Adrian and the team, they are the only ones I trust to give service my DB9. Their knowledge and level of service are second to none, from a service to upgrades you can trust them to surpass your expectations.”
“The exhaust they manufactured in-house can only be described as a piece of art! Outstanding quality and workmanship that sounds absolutely unbelievable. Great guys to deal with and would not hesitate to recommend them.”
“I’ve now taken my Vantage V12 to Bamford Rose for the past couple of years having been a dedicated Dealer only customer. I wasted time, money and quality as Mike and his team have given me a much better service than my local dealers ever had. They’ve fixed things the dealer couldn’t, the care is 2nd to none, the prices are very competitive, why indeed go anywhere else, definitely worth the travel.”
“Far more knowledgeable and able than the main dealer I experienced. Mike and his team are a rare diamond of excellence. I’d recommend them to any Aston owner.”
“I contacted Mike at Bamford Rose July 2015 for some servicing work on my DB9. I found Mike and the team to be exceptionally knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy on all things relating to Aston Martins. These guys have a real passion for the Brand with a customer care well ahead of some of the dealers I have visited. I had some rattles in the car and they were sorted as part of the service. Please continue with your excellent work completely recommended.”
“I have been taking my DB9 to Bamford Rose for almost five years now. Throughout, I have found their level of service and professionalism to be simply excellent. They know the car inside out; they are efficient, prompt, keep to the timetable agreed – and on top of everything charge very reasonable rates. As a result, I have no qualms whatsoever in recommending them to any Aston owners who want to know that their car will be looked after and cherished in every possible way. It is a pleasure to deal with them…”
“I started using Bamford Rose 4-5 years ago when I purchased my 2002 Vanquish and I cannot recommend them more strongly. Regarding the Vanquish, their knowledge is unrivalled, their service level is superb and this is coupled with offering excellent value for money. Prior to Bamford Rose my Aston experience had been the stuff of nightmares, and Mike and Adrian could not have been more helpful in getting my Vanquish back up to standard.
To illustrate the point they have fabricated a front sub-frame for me, that is vastly superior to the original, so that I did not suffer the indignity of having to purchase one from Aston Martin, They have collected the car on a low loader when the battery system failed. In short, they know the Vanquish inside out and I would not consider using anyone else to service my car.”
“I’ve been using Bamford Rose for about 5 years now for routine servicing and also enhancement works to my DB9.
It all started when I met Mike and Adrian for the first time at a car event. I was really impressed by their knowledge and passion for Aston Martin. As I was beginning to lose confidence in the main dealer network, I decided to book my car in for it’s next service and thought I’d also hang around and watch them work. The attention to detail was so refreshing, and since then I’ve never looked back.
There was also an incident on a road trip to Switzerland where the car started to throw up various warnings which Mike diagnosed for me via text messages. Thankfully nothing serious and I was given the go ahead and the confidence to complete my journey… How’s that for support?!
I would highly recommend Mike, Adrian and the Bamford Rose team to anyone in need of their services.”
“Buying an Aston is a nerve-wracking experience made much easier by the existence of people like Mike and the team at Bamford Rose who are prepared to share their expertise and offer advice freely. Mike helped advise me on the car to buy, and conducted an inspection, post purchase, to identify any issues (there were a few) which the supplying dealer then rectified.
It is this attention to detail, and the fact they are engineers first and foremost which gives me confidence that they are the right people to look after my car in the future. The list of improvements they have tried and tested is very tempting, and their reputation for offering what AM Works used to (but no longer) do is very well deserved. Wholeheartedly recommended.”
“Mike, Adrian and the team came highly recommended by a series of fellow AM owners. I opted to undertake exhaust upgrades and was immediately impressed by the technical expertise displayed. I was taken through every step, including a full explanation of options and likely performance enhancements. The work was outstanding, surpassing my expectations and completely tailored to my individual needs.
Subsequently, my car was never serviced anywhere else and ultimately, due to circumstances out of my control, I was forced to sell the car. Mike offered to sell the car on my behalf on Sale or Return.
His website explains the benefits of doing so perfectly. Not only are you getting an outstanding warranty, but you also get the peace of mind that true experts have carried out a detailed inspection and undertaken any remedial work. The car sold in 2 weeks, and I was extremely happy with the price. My next Aston Martin will never visit any other workshop other than Bamford Rose.”
“Their level of knowledge and technical expertise greatly surpasses that found in the franchised dealer network. I can highly recommend Bamford Rose having used them extensively for over five years for both regular servicing and upgrade work.
Their light weight twin plate clutch upgrade is still going strong at over 70,000 miles. It has now lasted over twice as long as the original clutch! Fantastic performance and value for money!”
“Mike sold my Vanquish in 1 week! His team fully prepared it for sale and he achieved exactly the amount I wanted. I’m very very pleased with all Bamford Rose and the expertise they have to offer.”
“Twin plate clutch conversion plus lightened and balanced flywheel, great service and awesome upgrade, thanks Andy”
“Used their service for major work to my car. Very helpful, very professional and had time to explain everything to me. Rare these days, I think they are great, their service for me was brilliant.”
