Elms is now Barons!!

Post by M60NJP » 03 May 2017, 15:55

As any of you who follow developments in the car Wolrd may know, Elms was purchased by a large corporation some while back (Group 1 Automotive) who owned and have acquired numerous dealerships in the U.S, U.K.and Brazil.

They have decided to use the Barons brand (which they also own!) for nearly all BMW dealers in the UK, so the Elms brand is being retired. Our member benefits continue but there are substantially more sites in play across the South and South East of England and of course new logos etc. Over the coming days, you may see a few changes on the Forum as we introduce the logos, wording etc. The three previous Elms sites in Cambridge, Bedford and Stansted continue to operate.

Any changes to contacts etc will be posted in the Elms (Barons!) sub-Forum in due course.

Exciting times!
