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.

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).

Service

To me it took too long to change a bulb, they said they had to do some health check that I did not ask for, the car was in for major repairs only two months ago.

Service
Thanks for your kind comments about the team and service. Apologies for the delay on this instance, we do an electronic vehicle health check on all vehicles as a duty of care when we see them, purely to let you know if there are any items you need to be made aware of. I trust everything has been resolved to your satisfaction now.

Customer service was good. Unfortunately the problem that the car was in for was not fully resolved.

I am sure we will get to the source of this one on your next visit. Apologies for any inconvenience.

I had a BMW dashcam fitted which caused problems with the key and the radio dab reception, it meant another day in the garage for repairs.

Service
Sincere apologies for the slight delay in getting this dashcam fitted to you vehicle. These are relatively new retro-fit items for BMW and occasionally the installation takes a little longer than expected. I trust everything is now working well for you. If you have any problems, do not hesitate to let us know.

I was not completely satisfied as there was no printed guide to the Sat Nav fitted to the car

Sales
Great to hear everyone looked after you well. I am sorry to say that BMW no longer provide a printed guide for the satellite navigation anymore and it is all available through the vehicles iDrive system. We will of course feedback you r comments back to BMW UK for their information. If you would like any additional support with your vehicle do not hesitate to contact us.

With the purchase of our first new car from you we were made to feel rather special and a valued customer this time round this did not occur and we felt now tied into your exchange deal this was just a trade in and not anything special .

Sales
I am sorry to hear you felt this purchase did not feel as special as your first purchase, I know the salesperson tried to go above and beyond expectations bringing all of the documentation to yourself and arranging for the vehicle handover nearer your home. I have spoken to the salesperson involved and I know we put together a fantastic offer for you on this vehicle, on this occasion we were able to assist with a better deal on the new car to offset the part exchange valuation.

Would have been completely satisfied except for car having a scratch on passenger front door, which appeared to be below the paint topcoat! This required door respray

Sales
Sincere apologies for this problem with your door. All BMW's go through multiple checks at all levels after they have left the factory and we are not sure how that got through the system, we have fed details of this issue back to BMW UK. I trust everything has been resolved to your satisfaction.
