PERRYS - Great deals on new & used cars, and vans (Site Review)

When I looked at the Perrys Motor sales dealership site for the first time, I thought that something missing on the index image. May be its too small? Just a tiny image of "PERRYS" and text "Great deals on new & used cars, and vans". I guess, a larger index image with some eye catching bright color match and a custom quote will work well with the site Perrys Motor sales. A quote something like "Great deals, low rates, with trusted resource", probably animated text in the index?

Secondly, the static random image in the center of the page. I liked the way it's designed and the placement, but a flash image or animated image with all those random images into one movie like animation will really suited for this place. And also may be the image corners with some circular shape like in the search for vehicle or the find dealership options? Same thing would be better for the More hot deals option. Instead of having static deals, probably an animated pictures and information galary for deals will be a pretty good addition to the Perrys site. Also I would like to see the prices with different options, I guess may be with dollars and euros?

I liked the color match in the "Search for a vehicle" box with shaded light blue. If this can be extend to the entire page? or maybe to the other two search boxes in the Perrys main site?
I searched the site with Vauxhall dealer and Vauxhall corsa, and loved the way how the other two search options changed accordingly. This is the first time I saw a cool feature like this, great job.
I like to see following options in the index page of the PERRYS dealership site.
  • An option to get a free dealer price quote. A small option box with make, model and postcode with a Get Quotes button?
  • A viewer box with "Most Researched" or "Most Searched" vehicles. This could shows a list of vehicles both cars and vans with ranking 1-10
  • A tool, research and Explore, probably to do a search by a price range or by category, or by features, and an option to do comparisons with different makes and models.

Another missing item in the PERRYS motor dealership site is a custom search option. Say I want to search for a "Vauxhall dealer" instead of getting into the "Search for a Vehicle" option. I guess its good to have a separate custom search box to do other types of searches within the site. May be placing a custom search in the top right corner with the banner ad?

Overall, PERRYS motor sales dealership site is a pretty good tool for consumers. But I would like to see some animated site, when comes to vehicles, rather a static site like the current one.
