Our dealership's history

Sandton Auto was previously known as Hyde Park Auto. Hyde Park Auto's origin goes back to 1993 and was previously known as Lyndhurst Auto Hyde Park. The name was changed when John Rayner purchased the business in January 2003. The dealership has a rich and very successful history. It was the leading seller of BMW Approved Used Cars in South Africa for four consecutive years: 1999 - 2002. The business is also one of the leading retailers of new BMW passenger cars in the country.

In 2005 Justin Divaris a well know young business entrepreneur purchased the business and subsequently moved to "State of the Art" premises in Sandown Sandton. In late 2006 Hyde Park Auto became the 1st BMW dealership to acquire a black economic empowerment partner namely Paul Phume. The cornerstone of the business is Service Excellence. The After Sales division services approximately 50 vehicles a day and it constantly strives to achieve the highest service levels. The Parts department plays a major role in supporting the service department supplying parts and accessories to the public and wholesale.

Our vision is to continually evolve a business that embraces our democracy, providing equal opportunities for all, striving to be the preferred place of business for both our customers and employees through service and employment excellence. We uphold the values of Service excellence, entrepreneurial flair, integrity, recognizing and developing people which provide the ingredients for a healthy long term relationships with our customers.
