    Cox, who plays Tam in the series, and McCarry, who plays Isa, took time out from filming the final series of the hit BBC series to help welcome customers to the new showroom on Hamilton Road in Mount Vernon following a substantial investment by the UK’s leading independent car retailer.

    Motorpoint teamed up with Glasgow-based award-winning interior architects BSD Associates earlier this year to transform its popular showroom. The new facility now delivers “a unique experiential space” where car buyers can relax in comfort to choose, buy and drive away with a low mileage nearly car from 30 different manufacturers on the same day.

    The new-look showroom, which took over two months to create, boasts a boutique-style Moto Café, where customers can choose from a wide selection of hot and cold food, a Kids Zone and an area dedicated to customer’s four legged friends, part of the branche’s continuing support for The Dog’s Trust.

    “We are extremely grateful to Tam and Isa for officially opening our fantastic new-look showroom,” Adam Gilmore, general manager of Motorpoint Glasgow, said.

    “Staff, suppliers and customers alike were delighted to see them take time out to help celebrate our big day. Plus, with the huge savings off list price on offer at Motorpoint, we even managed to prise Tam’s wallet out of his pocket on the day in case he wanted to put the deposit on a new car.”

    Motorpoint established its branch in Glasgow over 15 years ago. Since then Motorpoint has sold a low mileage nearly new car to every postal code area in Scotland. Located close to the M74, all cars come with less than 25,000 miles and the balance of the manufacturer’s warranty.

    Established in 1998, Motorpoint is the UK’s largest independent car retailer selling new and nearly new cars up to three years old and with less than 20,000 miles.

    It operates from 12 locations in Birmingham, Birtley, Burnley, Castleford, Chingford, Derby, Glasgow, Newport, Oldbury, Peterborough, Sheffield and Widnes, and employs more than 700 people nationwide.
