Christian Lyne established Top Notch Cars in Thetford after moving from smaller premises in Bury St Edmunds.

The business is predominantly run by Christian who is supported by his experienced and friendly sales and servicing staff. Christian has a passion for cars both in his personal and business life. His background in the car industry ranges from introductory level vehicle sales right up to general manager. Through this career he has been able to gain valuable experience in retail, sales, customer service satisfaction and car valuations.

The used cars that we sell are all hand picked by our experienced team at Top Notch Cars. We choose cars that have been well looked after and maintained by the previous owners and we offer all of our customers a 3 month, 3000 mile warranty when they purchase a second hand car from us.

If you purchase a car from us and there is a problem within 3 months or 3000 miles and the item is covered within our policy, it will get repaired by our mechanics with no questions asked.

Customer Testimonials

Great service! Friendly and reliable! No problems and would recommend to anyone!

5 star service from start to finish. I bought a 2012 Ford Mondeo Estate for 7100 in 2016, the car was immaculate inside and out. Christian offered a personal service that can't be bettered and went the extra mile for us in doing so. I will definitely be buying my next car from Top Notch Cars and have no hesitation in recommending them.

I have just bought my second car in a row from this Dealership, in July of 2016, its an immaculate 2013 BMW 320D for 11375. When I picked it up it was so clean you could have been mistaken and thought it was new!
Like last time Christian was friendly, helpful and not pushy, he let me decide in my own time and that's why I came back. I would definitely recommend this car dealer to anyone looking for a car. A+

Good friendly service. Name speaks for itself TOP NOTCH. Absolute pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend anyone looking for a quality used car that is definitely top notch and way above the rest. Not just used car sales but genuine trader that you can trust his word is his bond.
We love our Porsche. 😀
Thank you for first class service and first class car.

I had my Fiat 500 serviced in July 2016 by Top Notch Cars. Christian was very professional and friendly. I would recommend giving these guys a look if you're looking for a new car or you need a service.

GENEVA 2016 The star of the show without doubt was the £1.7 Million lamborghini centenario. You would most certanly get a few looks with it parked outside "da Club"! However, with only 20 coupes and 20 spiders being made, does it represent a good investment
