We’re very proud at Dick Lovett to be BMW’s longest serving dealer in the UK. The match was made in 1968 and fifty years on, we remain inseparable!
Dick Lovett and BMW’s story
Our founder, Dick Lovett established the original business in 1959. He lived and breathed motorcycles, motor racing and sports cars. Dick also had great business acumen and by the mid-1960s, his Wiltshire based sports car dealership was thriving.
Word of Dick Lovett’s reputation for customer service excellence and expert BMW knowledge reached the Bavarian car maker. The rest, as they say, is history.
Our relationship was cemented over the 1970s and 1980s as we showcased new BMW models, and built on our expertise in renovating the classics.
