I badly damaged two tyres hitting a deep pothole one night. Vines fitted two new tires the next afternoon and picked me up so that I could collect my car - all cleaned inside and out, of course. Efficient excellent service.

Service

Everything went smoothly, including the pick up of the vehicle.

Service

Very professional and friendly staff. No issues dropping off the car and picking up a loan car. All three issues were resolved within 48 hours. The tape applied across the doors is creased in some areas, so not the neatest but gets the job done.

Service

I bought my 330d from Vines of Guildford in 2002.Since that time,it has been serviced and MOT'd by them on a regular basis,their professionalism being absolutely first class.

Excellent interaction with sales team regarding a potential future purchase. The Service department were efficient, however when the car was returned the valet was rather poor with residual debris that I cleaned off myself the next day.

I think they tried to baffle me with science, but they don't seem to have fixed the underlying issue. The steering wheel still seems to be offset, and I have no way of assessing if it is any different to before!

Service
I will ask a Service Rep to call you in order that this is rectified to your satisfaction, with regards to parking we still have two more weeks of redevelopment to go as soon as it is over our site will become less congested, I do apologise

MOT required. Job done!

Service
Thank you

The courtesy bus driver Steve was amazing so friendly. I was called at 3:30pm to say my BMW was ready. However, when I arrived on the courtesy bus it was in the queue for being washed. I was not happy as had to forgo the wash as needed to get home.

Service
Everyone enjoys the Courtesy Bus and of course its FOC, glad you enjoyed the level of service provided

Staff were not friendly

I am so sorry to hear that I will ask our Reception Manager Mr Gavin Sellen to call you please accept my apology !

Vines decided this time not to price match tyres. Had to take time off during lunchtime and took car out during MOT and change them myself just cross the street.

Service
We will always try and price match however its not always possible, thank you for your business

This was my second visit to have the ventilation fixed. Previously was unsatisfactory. On this occasion the service contact made great effort and the technician Paul came out and very politely ensured that he fully understood the problem and fixed it

Service
I am sorry we do operate a first time fix I apologise it was not fixed the first time for you

Staff very helpful and friendly. Comfortable waiting area.

Service
Thank you for your positive comments regarding our new facility it is apprecaitted

Although there had been a mistake with my booking which essentially meant I didn't have one. They still got everything sorted really quickly including a loan car. Mistakes happen, it's how you deal with them that counts.

I am sorry this happened although I am really pleased we solved it for you on the day

Always charming and nothing is too much trouble

Service
Thank you for your kind comments they are appreciated

The service booking arrangements were completed apart from two ,for which I await a booking. Everything was prompt.and so very courteous.

Service
Thank you for your positive comments

Disappointed that exhaust recirculation valve failed at around 43000 miles due to carbonised deposits. Is this biofuel related?

Service
Thank you this can happen its is caused by carbon deposit build up in the exhaust system, sometimes a nice long run can avoid this.

so far I have no reason to be anything other than completely satisfied with Vines

Service
Your comments are appreciated

Kept me up to date with what was and did happen. Completed all they said they would.

Could not fix my car

Service
Thank you for your comments whilst they are disappointing we do operate a first time fix process I will make sure you receive a call from the Aftersales Manager to rectify the situation

I find when dealing with Vines Guildford you are always the one needing to chase for updates when it has come to the sale of the car and then minor issues with the car going forward

Service
Please accept our apology for any inconvenience caused , These items are important to us I am sorry you received the wrong impression, we simply want to repair your car and for you to be happy

Very good interpersonal skills exhibited by service staff

I have now used Vines on many occassions.They are always happy to assist. My vehicle has now covered 122k miles so odd things need dealing with - so this was all prepped before I took the car in and was all sorted to my satisfaction

Service
Please accept my apology for the refurbishment work we are now only 3 weeks away from finishing !

I was called to pick up the car because it was ready, but when there I was told it would have taken another 30-40 min to have it washed.Also on check-out the clerk told me to wait to see if she could get a discount on the price but then none was giv

Service
Thank you for your comments, we do offer some discount on certain items , please accept ,my apology this was not achieved

Had MOT planned and we flagged on the day that service light had just gone on and together we agreed to do on the same day. Max flexibility from BMW, meant minimum hassle for us.

Service
Thank you !

Overall we were very satisfied. However, we had to wait quite a long time to pick the car up when we returned with the courtesy car. Apparently the service supervisor was walking around the dealership with my car keys in his pocket.

Service
Please accept my apology for the delay in collecting your car, we are struggling with some of our timelines at the moment this is due to the redevelopment work on site

Because everything was dealt with in a satisfactory manner.

Service
Great news

The staff were helpful, professional and polite but there was no clear pricing policy for the service either in advance of the service nor on the day of the service.

Service
Please accept my apology for the pricing structure this information is available and clearly detailed on our websites

I would have given a score of 5 out of 5, but the handover of my vehicle, which was scheduled for 15th April was delayed at short notice because BMW UK were unable to deliver the car in time to the dealership.

Sales
Please accept my apology sometimes we do experience delays in deliveries, I do hope it didn't ruin the experience for you

From the moment we walked through your showroom doors we felt very welcome, it was bank holiday weekend and busy, we didn't have an appointment, yet your host still got us in front of a salesperson, whereas VW turned us away as too busy!

Sales
W will always try to accommodate our customers I am pleased you purchased your car from us and we do hope you enjoy it ! Welcome to BMW

I'm just enjoying the car. The three cylinder has great sound and very punchy for its small size. Just right for city driving and economical.

Sales
Glad you are enjoying your new car the specification looks amazing ! Thank you for your business

great sales rep... only issue would be that they need a better system to give you a more accurate date on delivery... the date moved a lot which made it hard to plan picking up and selling of old car.

Sales
Thank you for your business, please accept my apology for the delivery date moving from time to time this can happen depending on the availability of options selected.

Friendly and helpful on every visit. Josh approached us early to help us chose a car with great knowledge of the range. Contact through the build process and up to handover was great.

Sales
Thank you for responding I hope you enjoy the car

Everything was done with a minimum of fuss and to the stated timescale. Good planning meant everything was pre-arranged to a realistic schedule and so there were no delays in the delivery or my taking ownership of my new car.

Sales
That's great thank you for the great response enjoy your new car !

All very easy, felt the part ex price should have been better than competitor quote which made disposing of existing BMW more time consuming

Sales
Thank you for your comments which have all been noted, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your business

Car was in an awful state at handover. Sales person was good. Im not pleased that the car was sitting at a building site for a week.

Communication was extremely poor throughout the build stage. On each occasion I had to request an update. The car was built to a different specification and arrived with damage to the dash which has yet to be rectified - 2 weeks after delivery.

Sales
Thank you for your comments please accept my apology for any inconvenience cased I have aske the Sales Manager Ian Hughes to contact you in order that this is rectified to your satisfaction.

Paul was brilliant, kept us updated at all times and couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating. I changed the transmission to automatic after originally deciding on a manual and it was very easy to contact him and talk about it.

I am pleased Eric went the extra mile I hope you enjoy your new car !

Unfortunately, Vines Guildford were going through a major refurb so the handover location at the back of the carpark was a little disappointing but as there was no showroom available, this is understandable.

Knowledge of the carEfficient every step of the wayFriendly Helpful and after care is exceptional

Sales
Thank you and enjoy the car !
