Our centre star rating is based on customer satisfaction scores from real customers. 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.

The person I dealt with was very helpful, even providing me with transport home,and the service was second to none

Thank you for you r5-Star feedback. You chose a great time to get your air conditioning sorted, just in time now the weather finally looks as though it is improving.

Because everything I asked for was carried out in a helpful professional way.

Booked in quickly told time it would be ready and to the minute it was.Car washed and vacuumed.

Service
Brilliant. Thank you for your feedback.

£55 charge to tell me why the airbag light stays on intermitantly on the dashboard cluster. £4/500 to put it right. Outrageous.

Service

Really good reception by very conversant and friendly staff.

Service
Thank you, great to hear everyone looked after you well.

I felt the service given to me was second to none.m

Service
Thank you. I will pass your kind feedback on to Sarah in our booking team.

Work was carried out on time and all queries answered.

Service
I am glad the appointment text reminder helped. We looked forward to seeing you again soon.

All issues were dealt with promptly and efficiently (even minor ones I was not aware of). All those involved gave me the best of attention as always and left me completely satisfied. Absolutely 1st class!

Service
Superb feedback thank you.

1. It was arranged by Torbay Plymouth for the Service to take place at Ocean Torbay on Thursday 26th and to be picked up the principle at Torbay and leave a car for me to use. Yet Simon arrived on Wednesday.

Service
Apologies for the slight mix up regarding your collection. Our Sales Manager Gareth turned up a day early in error. Glad to hear everything went well on the actual collection date.

Seen and dealt with even though we did not have an appointment.

Service
Great to hear we were able to fit you in. I will pass on your thanks to Sean.

The experience at Ocean in Paignton is always very good and the staff so helpful,I will return each time i need help from them, Well done Ocean

Service
A true advocate of the business - thank you. We look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit.

because i was.

Service
Thank you for your 5-Star feedback.

My experience was deplorable. A simple repair was wrongly completed which lead to my car being held in the bmw garage for an initial further 6 days. I had to cancel appointments and waste several hours of my time because of the total incompetence.

Service

Caring staff determined to leave me happy, and a job well done.

Service
Thank you for your great feedback, I will pass this on to our Aftersales Manager to look in to.

All expectations met

Service
Brilliant - just what we are aiming for. Thank you

All well executed. Had to have new tyres so took rather longer than I had anticipated.

Service
Thank you for your kind feedback. Glad you enjoyed the coffee!

Service and car valeting were excellent but it took 1.5 hours while I waited,which is too long.

Service
Thank you for your feedback. We do quote 90 minutes for a standard waiting appointment however we do try to do things quicker for you whenever possible.

feel comfortable with Sean, makes allowances for my poor hearing.have done so

Service
I am glad to hear we sorted everything for you. I will pass on your kind comments to Sean.

Ocean BMW did the job properly

Service
Thank you for your custom and 5-Star rating.

Excellent professional service

Service
Thank you! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Staff very helpful; tyres fitted to time.

Service
Thank you for your custom, we really appreciate it.

They forgot to put the new tyres on!

Service
Apologies your replacement tyres did not arrive in time to be done at the same time as you other work. I am glad to hear everything is now sorted for you.

Excellent service

Service
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback - it is very much appreciated.

Professionalism

Service
Wow! Many thanks for your great feedback.

Pointless and inaccurate advisory notes added to my MOT service manager did not have a good enough explanation when asked about this.

Service
Sincere apologies for the confusion regarding your recent MOT. I understand everything has now been resolved to your satisfaction.

Service took too long. Didn't get phone calls updating or explaining reasons for delay.

Service
Apologies, there seems to have been some confusion on this visit. We had notes on the job to call you when the car was ready and we only had the car for two hours to do a brake fluid change and MOT. We are always happy to keep customers updated but on this occasion everything seemed to be within the initial timescales quoted. Sorry for any inconvenienced caused.

Excellent service, friendly, convenient prompt.

Service
Amazing feedback thank you. '35 yers, 20 odd vehicles still happy'. Thank you for your continued custom.

I phoned the given number to book a service appointment but this is a central facility and not the branch. I was advised that I needed a major service so made the necessary arrangements including transport. The car only required brake fluid replacing

Service
Sincere apologies for the confusion. When your car says it requires a service on the display it could be for one of a number of reasons. Unfortunately until we physically read your key we can only estimate the service required by the estimated time and mileage since your previous service, hence the slight change when you arrived on the day. I am glad to hear you were pleased with the customer service provided by the Aftersales team.

Management at Ocean a Torbay are so caring and customer friendly Nothing is too much troubleAlso New 2 series active tourer is magnificent thank youPeter Ovall

Service
Thank you Mr Ovall. If we can be of any assistance with your new car, do not hesitate to contact us.

Your

Service
I think the system obviously saved before you completed typing on this one. Thanks for your other comments regarding being happy with us 'doing what we said we would do'. We really appreciate your custom.

Helpful staff with good communication skills who kept me informed.

Service
Thank you for your kind comments and 5-Star rating. I am delighted the team looked after you well.

The car was in for warranty work which was not finished on time. I took the courtesy car home and my car was returned the next day.

Service

Friendly and knowledgeable staff made you feel wanted.

Service
We have a very friendly team here at Torbay and it is great when this comes through in the service we provide. Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback.

The young man deserves admiration from you for his outstanding friendly customer service & advice!!!

Service
Thank you for you very kind feedback. I will find out who looked after you on the day and pass on your compliments.

The service was handed efficiently. The long wait to collect my car (45 mins) let it down.

Service
Apologies for the delay when collecting your vehicle. We do try to manage the vehicle collections however occasionally this falls slightly outside of our control when large numbers of customer arrive at exactly the same time. I am glad to hear the actual service was to the high level we aim for.

usual great service.excellent knowledgeable staff and was informed of how it would be fitted and what to expect to be visible after fitment.Even washed the vehicle ... impressive.

Service
Thank you so much for your very kind comments and great feedback - we do appreciate it.

Despite booking over a week in advance my tyres/wheels were not delivered or ready for change. What should have been a morning job turned into 2 days. Very inconvenient

Service
Sincere apologies that you were inconvenienced. Having investigated it appears that we were sent the incorrect wheels and as a result had to order the correct ones again overnight. I am glad to hear everyone looked after you when things were finally sorted - Sorry!

All very good, except car valet could have been better (dirty marks on drivers window and hood still had something green on it)

Service
Thank you for your feedback. We do offer the complimentary wash and vacuum service with all jobs however we do not have the capacity to offer a full vehicle valet unless the vehicle is booked in for this in advance. We would be more than happy to do this for you but clearly we would need your car for longer to allow us to clean the vehicle fully inside and out.

Staff explained what was required and offered advice as needed

Service
Great to hear the team looked after you well. We look forward to welcoming you again soon.

Friendly staff, and excellent service, have been using Ocean Torbay since moving to bay in 2004, and always had excellent service and any issues have been dealt with easily and quickly.

Service
Thank you so much for your very kind comments and continued custom. We very much appreciate it.

Jon Dixon, sales person at Ocean Torbay was very good, no pressure at anytime, which made buying the car a pleasure. The car came exactly as orders and on time.

Sales
Thank you so much for your kind comments and feedback - I will ensure this is forwarded on to Jon. We hope you are enjoying your new car.

I have always bought my cars from Ocean BMW at Torbay through Jonathan Dixon because he and the dealership are excellent. The service is excellent, I don't have to worry about anything, just choose my new car and everything else is taken care of.

Sales
Fantastic comments thank you, I will ensure they are passed on to Jon.

Trevor Larkin has been amazing. He listened to exactly what I wanted and I now have my beautiful bmw and I have never been so happy! Communication was never a problem and he got me my car quickly and efficiently. Thank you so much!
