  • We have recently purchased our first Mercedes from the Oldtimer Centre at Rydalmere. It’s a 2009 E350 W212 with 76,000km on the clock and with full log book servicing done at Mercedes Benz. The interior is in immaculate condition, anyone can tell that the car has been loved and taken care of. And having been driving it for over a week now I can say that it feel buttery smooth and the response is so great.

    The first day I went there I met Kristian and he didn’t feel like a pushy car sales guy. He was very helpful and friendly and showed us around. I went with my wife the second day and took this car on a test drive and loved it. Kristian gave us a good deal and helped me out a lot later on with the extended warranty. I know who to speak to and where to go when I buy my next car.

    It is a true testament to Oldtimer Centre to acquire such a great car in this mint condition that it is. Thanks Kristian and Richard 😀

  • Very good service. Had been described the vehicle over the phone but due to past experiences decided to inspect it personally as I’m from interstate. Car was as described and Richard stayed late to settle the transaction. Thank you Richard for the extra effort you put in.

  • My wife and I bought a second hand mercedes station wagon from Oldtimer Centre. Richard Simons was incredibly helpful and what surprised me most was when he called me in the ensuing weeks to follow up on our purchase and check that everything was okay. He actually cared about the customer not just the sale.

  • From first inquiry to driving out the door, the process was effortless and enjoyable.
    I purchased a BMW and for the past 4 weeks have never had a better driving experience. Kristian and Richard answered my online queries and once in their impressive showroom, took his time and experience to answer any question I had, there was a real sense of professionalism with also being able to test drive and compare makes/models.
    I also traded in my car which was well inspected and was given a great price.
    They organise everything for you and on the spot once I found the perfect car was able to have everything organised, including finance options on the spot.
    The car was detailed and presented beautifully and I have never been happier!
    Going with the team here is the best decision you will ever make find that extra special ride!

  • Richard and his team are an absolute pleasure to deal with. I purchased a MY08 Volvo S80 3.2 AWD from Richard to replace my 1998 Volvo S80 T6 and it’s been a great car. Low kilometres and great condition, not a single problem! Their showroom is fantastic and friendly service, not pushy at all. Highly recommend to all my family and friends!!!

  • My friend Scott bought a Lexus from the guys at least ten years ago (avatar). Apart from personal use, it has been frequently used to convey valued clients to dignified and solemn events.

    He said the car has exceeded all expectations with a basic service regime. 277,000 on the clock, nothing major has ever gone wrong. He’s back in the market and will ring the guys for his next prestige work horse. His livelihood depends on his cars. I ended up with the car which I will bring up to show room standard as a hobby 2nd car.

    I see they are very selective in their offerings. They are serious.

  • Our son purchased his first car at Oldtimer. The sales staff (Kristian) was excellent and the car was immaculately cleaned when we picked it up. The entire process was just easy. The post sale service was exceptional. We had issues with the battery and the car not starting a few times and Oldtimer replaced the battery even though it wasn’t under the warranty. It was refreshing to deal with car salesman that are decent and not pushy. Would highly recommend this dealership and take some time to check out the old style cars they have. My son and husband loovveed it!
    Thanks guys

  • In fact, I am not a person who want to leave comment on the Internet and this is my first time to do it. However, Oldtimer Centre is truly the best place to purchase a car with an outstanding quality. People live here are always polite, trustworthy and willing to help. With a reliable mechanist, you could pick your next ride at any moment you step in their shop where is a crazy Utopia for auto fans! Also, I would like to show my appreciate to Richard, Blair, Joe, and Jacob because of my Audi’s perfect performance. They are all excellent and honest people, please pay a visit to the Oldtimer Centre, and you will find what you desire! Looking forward to purchase another automobile from your shop!!

  • This is a delayed review of a purchase made in late February 2020. I normally don’t bother with reviews – things have to be exceptionally bad, or good for me to make the time to write one. My experience with Oldtimer was amazing.

    I purchased a 2017 Mercedes C43 from the Oldtimer Centre. My main point of contact was Kristian. I had been looking around for a similar car in Canberra for a few weeks. My experience with dealers in Canberra was terrible. I found them all very arrogant, disinterested and inflexible.

    From the moment I contacted Kristian I had a completely different experience. He called me back the same evening, and we spent the next few days discussing the car. Kristian was personable, responsive and made time to speak to you without being pushy. He would get back to me with answers to all my questions and was exceptionally patient. Compared to options in the ACT, the car was newer, less KMs, better options and cheaper.

    I ended up buying the car sight unseen, based on the information Kristian had given me, and the confidence he gave that everything was legitimate. I drove to Sydney that weekend. To be honest, I was slightly nervous given the size of the purchase and not having seen the vehicle.

    Upon arrival at Oldtimer, I was again greeted by Kristian. The car was amazing and exactly as described. Kristian was a really laid back and genuine guy.

    I have now had the car for nearly three months and it has been amazing. I can’t speak more positively about the purchase, the buying experience and Kristian himself. I would not hesitate to make Oldtimer my first stop for my next car.

    Thanks Kristain (and the rest of the team). Hope you are doing well during the current situation. Love the car……..

  • I bought a 2004 SAAB 9-3 Arc off of Richard.The car was great to drive and the condition was great.The level of professionalism of Oldtimer Centre is second to none.
    As soon as you walk into the business they make you feel like you are part of the family and want to give you the best level of service that they have.
    I have recommended this business to anyone that is looking at buying a car, you cant go past the old fashioned service that they provide.

  • Honest, Friendly, Helpful dealer. They were a great help when I was having issues with my insurance company. They know their products but have customer service at the heart of their business model

    I have never encountered a dealer like them. If you want a dealer who will continue to support you post sale, even when little money is involved than come here

    I have been pleasently surprised by the quality of the Citroen product as well

  • I would highly recommend the Old Timer Centre. I purchased an E class a little over a year ago and it has been perfect. Mac and Phil are the best to deal with, knowledgeable, friendly and both answered all my questions, spent the time with me on two different occasions. Mac is very approachable and went out of his way to accommodate my test drive and when I came back after thinking about it Phil was great too. I met the owner Richard too who was very nice. A great team and after more than a year a perfect running Mercedes with zero problems other than routine maintenance. I will be back again.

  • I haven’t bought a car in 17 years, so this was an exciting adventure for me! After looking for over a year, and having missed out on another purchase in March due to Covid19, I was delighted to come across the Oldtime Centre’s black 2011 Audi A3 (Ambition) convertible. Having had a convertible previously, I knew what to expect, but came with many questions!

    Firstly well done on the advert, a video and 55 photos! That made a big difference for me. Lots of detail, so I knew it was a good one and worth the effort to visit.

    Kristian – you patiently answered my many questions, and nothing seemed was too much trouble.

    Richard, thank you for your time on the test drive. I liked how you took me out first, demonstrated the car and some features, etc, including the roof opening and closing and then let me take it for a drive. Having driven many cars in Australia, but not owned one for 7.5 years, I found this really helpful.

    Kristian – you worked hard on the negotiation, completed all the contract paperwork, title transfer documentation, stamp duty, transfer fee, and the 3 year extended warranty all seamlessly on the day, allowing me time to read what I was signing etc. Thank you for your patience.

    The car was in lovely condition, beautifully detailed. You did exactly what you said you would do in relation to having some small cosmetic repairs completed prior to pick up and you replaced two tyres! This made for a very happy birthday girl!

    The Old timer Centre, has a large range of vehicles. I would happily recommend Kristian or Richard should they have a car to meet your needs!

    I also felt that you both made a point of the after sales service, and being available should there be any post sale questions.

    Thanks again for a great purchase!
