It is based on information collated by BMW UK over the past 90 days of new car sales and aftersales service transactions, where the customers have subsequently elected to complete a satisfaction survey online or by phone. You will also see below customer comments, which are unedited.

For the fourth time I have had a warning light 're ABS - each time I have had to have a survey costing 99GBP before booking my 325 convertible for repair.Which I feel is excessive.

Service
Please accept our apologies for the problem with your sensors. As discussed on your first visit we don't know when these issues are going to arise and under the terms of the warranty we cannot replace an item unless it fails. We do try to assist with a reduced diagnosis fee and I know Jon did everything he could to assist with increasing your loan car period etc. I have passed your product feedback on to the BMW UK for their information.

I was told the car was ready for collection, when I arrived thirty minutes later I had to wait a further hour until it was actually ready. I received no apology or explanation for the delay.

Service
Apologies for the delay when you collected your vehicle, this was due to a problem with our power washer earlier in the day we did get slightly behind on the courtesy washes. Due to you house move I know Jon did try to assist as best as possible with a lift home earlier in the day. One for us to learn from - sorry!

On collection of the car there was grease on the drivers seat. Also where the rear light lenses were replaced (under warranty) they must have prised them out with a screw driver and marked the bumper under each lens (not bad but still marked).
