Simon and the team at BK have looked after my Elise for the last 15 years and 220,000 miles (she’s now done 235,000!) and I wouldn’t trust anyone else to look after her. The mileage, as well as the current condition of the car, are a testament to the care and expertise provided by BK over the years.

I’ve been a Brooke-Kensington customer for more than 10 years. The reason I keep going back is due to the superb level of service provide by Jack, Simon and the team.


I’ve used Brooke-Kensington for buying cars, selling cars, routine servicing, engine swaps and a major body off respray and rebuild! On every occasion I have found them professional, helpful and courteous. Perhaps most importantly of all, I feel I am dealing with a group of people who are as enthusiastic about my car as I am!

Brooke Kensington have been looking after my various Elises for more than 8 years.   Simon has been absolutely brilliant, knowing exactly what to do with great advice regarding keeping the vehicle in fine fettle.  It never ceases to amaze me each time the car is serviced.  I drop it off thinking that not much is really needed but it comes back feeling better than before.  It’s the little touches you notice, for example; how smooth the doors open and close, the gear change which has improved.  Practical advice is always readily available whether it be upgrades that one might be considering or potential car purchase advice.   If you’re looking for a very established, friendly Lotus specialist that you can trust, look no further.

I have used BK for many years now and have always found them very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable on all things Lotus.

I am on my 6th Lotus so know the brand very well. In addition I am in the motor racing industry so know performance cars very well. The two added together make me a difficult customer to please but pleased I have always been with the service BK offer.

As a customer of Brooke Kensington’s for over 12 years, during which time we have owned 4 Lotus (3 Elise and now an Exige), we continue to be extremely impressed with their level of customer focus and support.  As a team they deliver an excellent quality service, and we would not hesitate in recommending them.

BK are the only people I trust with my Elise 111R Sports Racer. They take care of the little as well as big things through superb attention to detail and provide absolutely outstanding customer service. I know that my Elise is in safe hands and cannot recommend them highly enough.




I have known Simon since 2003 when I bought my first Lotus Elise S1. At that time I knew very little about Elises and after some research decided to take it to Brooke Kensington for some attention and a check over. Simon immediately impressed me with his knowledge and understanding of these cars and quickly put right all the issues that needed addressing. Thereafter the car behaved perfectly, never letting me down.


I am now on my 3rd Lotus, an Elise 111R which is maintained by Simon’s capable hands. His depth of knowledge on these cars is bottomless and his attention to detail unsurpassed so why go anywhere else? You wouldn’t get the same level of attention at a main dealer and you’d end up paying main dealer rates so it’s a no brainer. Where else are MoT’s and tyre changes personally supervised by the mechanic? That’s what gives me total assurance when I need anything doing. Simon also keeps you up to date on any developments. He is also very competitive on parts like wheels, sports exhausts and tyres so I know I’m always going to get a good deal.


He recently volunteered his expertise and help whilst I was building a Caterham from a kit. Another area where he has a lot of experience. Not only is he an excellent mechanic but he’s now also a good friend who has enabled me to enjoy the thrill of owning and running several Lotus cars at a very reasonable price.


For total confidence and quality of workmanship at a very competitive price you can do no better.
