Mazda MX-5 Open Day – Saturday 4th August 2018

open day

On Saturday 4th August we hosted our second ever Mazda MX-5 Open Day. We enjoyed some fantastic weather and there was a great turnout with a large variety of gorgeous MX-5 cars turning up on the summer afternoon.

Here are just some of the many highlights from the event!

Take a look at the winner of our ‘Best In Show’ competition who won a subscription to Total MX-5 magazine and car accessories. Our ‘Furthest Travelled’ prize went to this Mazda MX-5 enthusiast who travelled to the event from Coventry.


We’d also like to say a big thank you to Cafe 2 U who served refreshing drinks and snacks and helped to make the afternoon a success.

The next event that we will be hosting here at David Manners Group will be our Jaguar & Daimler Open Day which returns in 2018 for its second year. The event will take place on Saturday 8th September from 1pm and we hope that you can join us for what promises to be another great event.

DMG make the Sandwell Top 50 Companies list

We’re very excited to have made the list of Sandwell’s Top 50 Fastest Growing Companies in 2018!


Being situated in Sandwell is a great benefit for us, not only due to excellent transport links but also to the proximity of some famous neighbours. To-Ta Classics, home of Channel 4’s TV show Car SOS, is located just five minutes away. We work very closely with the garage to provide parts for the show.


As we continually increase the number of parts we supply we need more and more space to house stock. Rather than moving premises we are looking to extend our current home in Oldbury, staying at the heart of Sandwell.

Celebrating 70 years of the Morris Minor

This year we are celebrating 70 years of the fantastic Morris Minor. The beloved and very British Moggy was launched at the 1948 Motor Show.

In December 1960, the Minor became the first British car to sell a million cars and in 1981 David Manners ventured in to the Morris Minor automotive spares market and went into partnership creating the Morris Minor Centre (Birmingham).

Originally restoring and repairing Morris Minor cars and commercials the parts side of the business grew and grew and became the main income for the business.

We celebrate this milestone birthday by taking a look at some of the gorgeous Moggies that visit us here at the David Manners Headquarters.

Happy 70th birthday, Morris Minor!
