Yep I remember them as Lewis''s back in the day - one of the sons ran into the back of me in his 340 .... made repairing easy, they just took it in house so no insurance involvement needed

That was William A Lewis Cars Ltd who sold to Greenhous about 6 years ago - I remember that son!
Most of the time served service technicians are still there which is a great asset.

Mine will be going in there for a service in January, only visit so far was to buy a boot mat in Jan this year.

They were helpful when I was looking to order, and I had their bursting blue T8 RD demo out for a couple of days, but unfortunately they couldn’t even get close to my best BCH deal, so they lost out. This would have been in the Greenhous days around Sept 17.

We shall see in due course! D76

Yeah Lewis's had it for years - the crash with a 340 kind of dates it, as does the reg on my Renault 5, MAO 443W, God knows how I ever shoehorned myself into that!!
