This is the second time I brought my car for a service and it wasn't cleaned. It wasn't in for a big job and I had to call at three after giving my car in at 8 asking how long my car will still be Specially after being told it won't take that long

Service

Always polite and helpful

Service

very good service and attitude - many thanks

Service

Great service as usual.

Service

From start to finish the service was second to none. Colin Donno, Ian Payne and Andy Barrington-Hill deserve top marks for going out of their way to fix the issues my car.

Service

It took too long to complete the needed repairs. Furthermore the needed repairs were only half done and another problem was created in the process.

Service

Car cleaning not very good. Failed to top up windscreen washer as requested.

Service

I was very satisfied with the service I received from the staff. It was a smooth process dropping off and picking up my car. They also gave me a lift to and from the train station.

Service

Car collected and returned on time and work carried out properly

Service

The staff were friendly and very helpful. The overall service was professional and my car was ready for collection on time. A courtesy car was provided for the day which was much appreciated.

Service

It was the first service. I saw nothing that would give me reason to be dissatisified

Service

Communication and attention to detail second to none.

Service

Good quick service

Service

As always. Every thing i need

Service

Booked in ,completed early,& on my way home quickly.

Service

Staff were great both Ian and Wayne were polite,efficient and helpfull as always.My service book was left in the vehicle but not stamped. Will get it stamped on next visit.

Service

Job was botched, car not returned when promised, second visit required, senior mgt have not contacted me despite 3 requests, I lost a weekend away and dealer clearly could not care less. Total loss of confidence.

Service

Helpful friendly staff

Service

Initially there was a lack of communication about what was happening and why everything was taking so long. When the service manager found out what was happening everything was handled very well.

Service

Because all my issues with the car, were sorted out in a quick and efficient manner. Was kept fully informed through out.

Service

This is PEARL Townsend speaking as it was HER car that was being serviced - I find the personnel patronising, ie trying so hard to be polite that it doesn't feel natural. However, when it came to paying, the attitude was different, ie indifferent!

Service

For the first time in years I have been disappointed with the service. Was not told when dropped car of service pack expired, nor when the 'consultant' told me was ready for pickup. Cost isn't the issue ... the service I'd expect from Ford not BMW.

Service

Good staff with kniwledge. Car could have been cleaned better.

Service

It was a small repair and the staff served me (Colin) has been extremely professional and friendly.

Service

Completed as promised

Service

Everything from booking to loan car as planned. Bit of waiting around as very busy.

Service

Pre-booked, while you wait oil change. Completed quickly, usual very welcome car valet, and still the best coffee in a car serving department!

Service

I couldn't fault anything

Service

The work done was effective and solved the problems, but was fairly expensive

Service

Was a busy day for you, I waited 20mins for my lift to work and ended up getting a lift with a friend, the return lift at 5pm was OK. upon collection the car was not washed or vacuumed, the service advisor did actually wash it himself!

Service

The service was carried out within the timescale and price quoted without any problems.

Service

I expected an efficient and professional service - You delivered

Service

All went smoothly, no problems

Service

Was waiting much longer than was told

Service

great service by a very helpful staff

Service

Customer service is execellent problem dealt with straight away, staff can't do enough for you, left my car with service centre was informed of the progress by phone, and received a call next day that my car was ready for collection.

Service

Everything went as planned

Service

Had to wait at book in as no paperwork also did t have courtesy car as pre booked also had to wait around to collect car

Service

The paperwork only said about the check and the MOT I was not told that a service was not necessary because of the low mileage. There is no paper service record I understand from the press that this is now the usual practice.

Service

Received good service, however it took longer than anticipated (2.25 hours vs up to max 1.5 hours which I was told it would take)

Service

Overall the work was carried out but I had asked for the seat not to be moved but sadly it was. Also I have noticed that having just had a service the car is due for another service in 4 months time.

Service

While you wait service which was completed earlier than expected.

Service

I was completely satisfied

Service

I am dissapointed at the length of time you have to book your service in advance to get a courtesy car. Although it is not a courtesy car as you have to pay for it. Whats more dissapointing is when you drive away in the car the red fuel light is on

Service

Made to feel like I was a valued customer and very polite and welcoming staff. Excellent standard of work by technicians with all my requirements addressed.

Service

Staff were extremely polite and helpful

Service

Great staff, and the team fitted me in when I had real time pressure.

Service

Service

Very helpful staff, good job completed on my car

Service

When I mentioned that I could not get volume on the SatNav an Advisor said that I should turn up the sound, I later found that it was on mute.

Service

Booked in at short notice and although busy, my problem was dealt with when I needed it. Appreciated the understanding of the urgency.

Service

Charming,efficient reception.Booked in on time.Shown to a pleasant waiting area where coffee/drinks were provided.Car was ready in time specified .Personnel on hand to discuss any issues arising from service.Documentation provided to show work comple

Service

booked for summer wheel change - 90 min and this took 2 hours with no suitable explanation

Service

Very friendly, helpful and efficient throughout the process

Service

My vehicle was serviced on time and returned to me in a very clean state

Service

More courtesy car availability would have been nice and the work took a full day when perhaps should have taken 3 hrs

Service

We saw Ian as we walked through the door. Everything was ready all documents were signed. We needed a Customer Service Car. Our X1 would be with you for two days. Ouch!!!! My wife is handicapped, the car booked for us had been HIGH-JACKED v. painful

Service

good price, excellent service

Service

I purchased my BMW as an approved used BMW with 10800 miles and only 10 months old. I recently had the car MOTd and asked for the irregular wear to my front tyres to be investigated. A defective track rod end was found and replaced but not the tyres.

Service

I have established a very good relationship with Specialist Cars and I am always treated as a valued customer.

Service

Great service as ever from specialist cars Stevenage. However the service manager when I collected my car was rude to the driver who had picked me up from the station which was unprofessional and completely unnecessary hence losing a star.

Service

staff were very helpful and informative

Service

It sometimes seems that the team are not really set up to progress handover quickly. I need to get in and get out, the waiting area is pleasant enough but I don't really want to be sat there waiting.

Service

All v good but I was not taken through the car visual check. I only found this a few weeks later . Without this one minor failing I would have been v satisfied. On the +ve side, I really appreciated the quick turnaround.

Service

Excellent

Service
Hopefully your 10/10 scores and comments elsewhere indicate that the 20% score for Overall Satisfaction is an error. Clive Fletcher MD

The service I received from start to finish was exemplary.

Service

good service

Service

I was given no courtesy car while my vehicle was in, even though my warranty states I should have.

Service

Excellent smooth & friendly service

Service

is too expensive

Service

could not fault service given

Service

Every thing was done to my satisfaction,and your coffee was great.

Service

car regularly has maintenance check of tyres & levels but this time no screenwash shampoo in windscreen bottle very inconvenient & inefficient screen cleaning!! Annoying!

Service

The whole experience, from arriving to leaving, was most pleasant. I have had a lot of experience over the years with many service departments, this has been the best by a long way.

Service

good service. Collin definitely went "the extra mile" to get things sorted !!

Service

Good customer service and work carried out t satisfaction but the car was washed after the works which was disappointing as the car looked smear free before it went it but little care was taken in washing the car and looked worse than when it went in

Service

Staff pleasant and helpful. Service and car cleaning took an excessive amount of time and over an hour and half over the estimated provided. Below the usual standard from BMW.

Service

Having a service on a Saturday is my only option and I have no complaints only complete satisfaction.Thank you.

Service

Problem dealt with efficiently

Service

Car was dealt with promptly, the issue I was having hasn't recurred, clean and friendly environment, can't expect more.

Only negative was that the customer wi fi link was not working and hence I could not use my laptop whilst waiting

A simple MOT visit which was carried out efficiently and on time.

Service

Efficient and professional service.

Service

My car was collected from my home, serviced, cleaned and returned home.The cost, thankfully,was relatively cheap

Service
Given your positive comments in most areas I'm hoping that the 20% Overall Satisfaction score was a computer error? Clive Fletcher MD

Staff are always friendly and helpful, which is one of the reasons why I travel over 90 miles round trip for my servicing.

A very relaxed atmosphere to the Showroom.

Sales

I was purchasing a M135i initially but there were long delays - so decided to enquire about the M3 (I eventually bought). I was happy with the updates from the BMW Centre, but they were getting a lack of info from BMW UK which was frustrating.

Sales

Very helpful and personable service - from first viewing cars to collecting my new car ... It'll was a simple, stress free and rewarding experience.

Wendy Lee exceeded my expectations of buying a new car. She was very informative about the product, but most importantly spent time listening to the customer. She also went the extra mile to find me a car with immediate availability.

Sales

Excellent sales team - couldn't have been more helpful. Matt was really focused on finding the right car for me and getting the right price for my wife - the guy should take up marriage guidance as we both got what we wanted!
