Guildford Audi gets set to reveal £3 million refurbishment

Guildford Audi has revealed details of its £3m re-development project, which will improve efficiency at the dealership by increasing workshop capacity and reducing the amount of time customers spend in its waiting lounge.

The refurbishment, which is currently on track to be completed by October, will feature a Customer Private Lounge (CPL), which will allow customers to configure and customise their dream car on 80-inch projector screens, and a larger car display space.

Workshop capacity will also increase by four ramps, and this, combined with the additional six ramps at the recently acquired Preparation Centre at the site, will increase workshop capacity and reduce waiting times significantly.

A modern handover facility will also create a personable experience for customers and extend the working space and environment for the Guildford Audi team, improving the overall car-buying and aftersales experience.

The dealership plans to open with a launch event in October to mark the occasion, with customers, people in the local area and suppliers all to be invited.

Cameron Wade, Franchise Director for Lookers Audi, said: “The future is very bright for Audi. We have the versatile A6 and Q8 launching into the New Year, and of course we’re taking orders for the he highly anticipated, aero-focused fully electric e-Tron. This new dealership will be the perfect way to showcase these fantastic cars and reflects the high bar that Audi sets itself in regard to both design and craftsmanship.”

Lookers undertook the makeover of Basingstoke Audi earlier this year and is also currently going through a transformational rebuild at its Farnborough site.
