Easy to deal with and everything dealt with on time

Service

Everything is so straight forward from booking to collection , the only moan I've got was the loan car was a bit dirty inside .

Service
Please accept my apology for the dirty loan car this is just not acceptable, we will take this up with the valet team

Communication from the garage was good but had to chase for updates a number of times. Only one member of service staff available when collecting the car meant queuing to collect the car

Service
Please accept my apology for any inconvenience caused to you we will address this moving forward

Staff always pleasant and helpful

Service
We do invest a lot of time in training our staff it looks like it has paid off, thank you

Beyond faultless

Service
That's very nice to know thank you

Professional on time good product information and excellent sales staff to advise on new cars

Service
Thank you I do appreciate your comments and your business

The after sales team are amazing especially Natalie, who went above and beyond when I was blocked in by another customer. The team made sure that I had my car back when I needed it.

Service
Thank you great to hear such a nice personal story regarding your car

Service & MOT were carried out well. Only issue was that when the car was cleaned the steering wheel was very dirty & the Service Advisor had to come out to the car & re clean it.

Service
Please accept my apology, this is very unusual I will ask our Reception Manager to call you in order that we can valet your car !

I can rely on them.

Service
I am pleased you can rely on us, thank you for your business

Very helpful on the phone Efficient collection and deliveryService and MOT done quickly. Car returned nice and clean

Service
That's very kind of you to say, enjoy the car and if we can help further please contact us

All fine

Service
Thank you

Great all round - very happy customer

Service
Great news thank you!

Service was quick, we were kept informed throughout regarding timings and car was an ready an hour early.

Service
Thank you for your positive response to the level of service received form our business

Very good service

Service
I am pleased we looked after you and thank you for the positive comments

The end result was fine but after being advised the car was to be kept overnight for work to be completed in the morning, I then had real difficulty establishing if the car was ready. A promised return call did not happen so I had to chase again.

Service
Please accept my apology we will always endeavour to keep customers updated it id regrettable this was not achieved on this occassion

Booked in the car, arrived on time, they took the car, the receptionist was very helpful and friendly and offered me coffee, wifi etc so I worked happily for an hour and then the car was returned and also given a complimentary clean.

Service
All sounds perfect thank you

Helpful service reception staff and a prompt service.

Service
Great news I am pleased we could accommodate you

i had expected the car to be cleaned inside & out. Only the outside was done and not very well. I had dropped the car off the night before but it wasnt ready for collection until close to 4pm.

Service
Please accept my apology this is very unusual we will offer you a free clean our Reception Manager will be in touch with you.

I gave the car for a diagnostic oil leak check and the fault was diagnosed. Although I had to leave the car for a day or two, they were quite accommodating in finding the time to correct the fault, in what was obviously a tight service schedule.

Service
Thank you for your positive response I am pleased we managed to assist you

although booked in very early ~ it took hours to complete the MOT. Plus for Previous repair work done some months ago ~ the vehicle not fully checked and hence incomplete repair, meaning I had to return to have this done.

Service
Please accept my apology for the delay in carrying out the MOT on your car this was a delay on our part

See above

Service
Please accept our apology for the delay in processing your request we have taken this up with BMW Emergency Service in order that this is not repeated again.

They have a great service team, nothing is too much trouble, they have their own minibus that can drop you off locally and come and collect you too when your car is ready, what a fantastic thing to offer.

Service
Thank you I am pleased you liked everything, I will ask our Reception Manager to call you in order that we can arrange for your account to be opened this will be Mr Gavin Sellen

Because when I went for a pre scheduled fitting in my car of a couple of items I was told it will take 1 hour and I was waiting there for 5 hours! It was ridiculous the service of the Vines Branch. - I want this rating to be completely dissatisfied!

Service
I have to agree I have asked our Service Manager Mr Gavin Sellen to call you in order that this is rectified

Per above. It was ok but no better

Service
Please accept my apology we will contact you in order for the car to be recleaned

I think the staff and service is excellent

Service
Thank you

Professional friendly knowledgeable staff. Excellent spotlessly clean showroom and toilets with good customer reception seating areas including tea - coffee and biscuits. A good range of cars on show with the added bonus of BMW Motorrad attached.

Service
Thank you your comments are appreciatted

Would of been completely satisfied except the cleaning of the car. Paint was slightly scratched down drivers side for length of both doors. Clearly a dirty leather had been used. Luckily the marks were polished out.

Service
It is regrettable that your car has not been cleaned to a high standard I will ask our Service Manager to call you in order that this is rectified

Again the service is excellent.

Service
Thank you for your business

car clean and in good state

Service
Thank you, yes I do apologise we no longer take Amex

As above - it was simply to have winter wheels changed to summer wheels

Service
I am pleased the work was carried out to your satisfaction

Paperwork states next service due August 2018 whilst vehicle display shows May 2019. Paperwork also shows MOT expiring 2018 even though it was renewed at the time of service.

Service
I will ask our Service Manager to call you Mr Gavin Sellen in order that this is rectified

As above and lack of updates.Car stayed in overnight , but I wasn’t phoned to be told. The reason it stayed in overnight was lack of parts

Service
Please accept my apology that you were not called this is unacceptable, I will raise this with our Service Manager Mr Gavin Sellen

Great customer service and usually everything gets done properly but this time my car’s fault is not fixed

Service
Please accept my apology we do operate a first time fix policy, I will ask our Service Manager Gavin Sellen to call you

Staff was friendly and professional.

Service
I will inform the staff that dealt with you, thank you
