CD 196 Dashboard

Big Motoring World founder Peter Waddell wasn’t joking when he threatened legal action after being ousted as a director by the used car supermarket’s holding company.

A two-day hearing was held at the High Court in London and Car Dealer staff writer Jack Williams was there for every minute of it – we even got name-checked by a barrister as ‘an important publication in the sector’. A special four-page section of the magazine tells you the extraordinary ins and outs of the proceedings.

We also have an exclusive report by Craig Cheetham about the worrying trend of people delaying their cars’ MOT tests.

More votes than ever were cast this year in our annual survey to find the best suppliers and manufacturers in the automotive industry and now all the hopefuls have been whittled down to a shortlist.

Once the judges have finished their deliberations, the winners and highly commendeds will be announced in a special video on this website on Wednesday, July 3. But before then, we reveal who’s in the running for one of our prestigious awards.


CD 196 Features

Last month, we brought you an exclusive look at Tom Hartley Jnr’s supercar showroom, and it proved so popular that we’ve rustled up a bonus video for you with an extended tour of the ultra-exclusive dealership!

There’s also another selection of the latest coolest products on the market.

For our latest road tests, James Batchelor, Jack Evans and Cameron Richards were handed the keys to – respectively – the revamped Nissan Qashqai, Mini’s electric Cooper and Hyundai’s first electric N car. Find out what they made of them in this section.
