Ocean Automotive has opened its new Audi 65,000 sq-ft showroom and service centre. Located in Poole and less than a mile from Ocean’s old Audi showroom, the £14.5 million facility includes a gym and beauty salon offering complimentary services to customers.

The new 24-car showroom has been recognised as the UK’s largest Audi Centre, while there’s also provision for 80 used vehicles and 325 spaces for service and storage use. The aftersales business boasts a 24-bay workshop and two MOT areas alongside valet and smart repair facilities. The site employs 110 staff, including 20 new recruits, and will be open this summer after the completion of a three-week staff induction period.
