I’ve never entered anything like this before so when I got the call from the talkSPORT team to be on the live radio quiz I was really thrilled.
“It has been an amazing experience from beginning to end. The moment I won was unforgettable and I could not quite believe it. But from the moment the Motorpoint team got in touch to confirm the good news I could not have been more thrilled. The whole team has been exceptional in taking the time to helping me find the car I really wanted. There is so much choice, low mileage and brand options available at Motorpoint I spent a good amount of time looking. The car I have chosen is fantastic and I’m so pleased to have a Motorpoint in Portsmouth which is so close to where I live.”
