You will also see below customer comments, which are unedited.

Gave us a good idea what we could get for our budget

Service

Excellent communication and final result. Took a long time to finally diagnose and fix faults.

Service

Car in for only a replacement tyre due to puncture. When car picked up tyre pressure monitor not fully re set and advised to monitor it on journey home. When re set completed on journey home, tyre was 0.5 bar below required pressure. Car returned.

Service

I use Bowker Preston close to where I work despite living in Wilmslow, Cheshire, this applies to service and sales. All dealings with Bowker Preston have been professional and clear, without pushy sales.

Service

Whilst I was pleased with the fact the work was carried out under warranty, I was not impressed that I had to travel 10miles out of my way and lose an hour of my night to return to the dealership to get the undertray fixed on to the car properly.

Service

Very friendly staff

Service

As always the team at Bowker Preston delivered a first class service from start to finish very happy.

Service

3 times this year I have been kept waiting for much longer than the designated time. Most recently I was informed my car was ready at 10 am. I went to the garage to pick it up at 12.15 pm and still had to wait an hour.

Service

Very professional and courteous

Service

Great service and excellently communicated

Service

Bowker Preston is a very clean place and the staff is helpful, friendly and polite

Service

Went in expecting to have to book a date to have problem fixed, surprised when they took the car there and then and gave me a courtesy car. Had to order the parts but my car will still back with me the next day. Easily the best experience I've had.

Service

I had a brake issue and was very happy that I was able to bring the car in at short notice. I appreciated the straightforward communication. I was also happy with the comfortable environment while waiting and Eoghan kept my daughter entertained!

Service

Good level of customer service. Waiting area suits customer needs.

Service

Very good experience at Bowker, only 1 small niggle was the price I was charges for new wiper blades.

Service

Went the extra mile to deal with issues

Service

All work was completed at the quoted price, within the estimated time.

Service

I liked the video I received.

Service

Despite having a vehicle in for a service the service light is still present

Service

Everything went well. Though my brakes now have a grating, crunchy nose at slow speed they didn't have before it went in.

Service

Great but took a little longer than expected and as I was waiting this was a little frustrating, but overall very good.

Service

I had new alloys and winter tyres fitted. Two cups of tea later the car was returned washed and vacuumed.

Service

Everything was planned and completed on time

Service

Spot on customer service

Service

I booked the car in to replace rear bump stops following a previous Service advisory. This wasn’t done, but an end of warranty inspection was done. I re-booked to have the bump stops replaced but again this wasn’t done, so I need to book a 3rd time

Service

I had to wait 20 mins+ in the seating area before seeing service reception - it would have been longer had I not asked what the delay was.Also I chose to wait as I was advised the job would take 1.5 hours - I waited for 2.5 hours.

Service

Totally satisfied with their management of the situation and kept me informed.

Service

Computer on car not updated with service info

Service

Excellent service / great staff always very accommodating

Service

Everything went well and was treated with respect at all times

Service

The staff were polite and the recall carried out quickly. We left the car and on our return it had been washed and valeted to a high standard.

Service

Same reasons as above

Service

Problems fixed and car returned in a clean condition

Service

There is a small scratch and dent on the wing adjacent to the repaired wheel that was not there before the process started. The team have flattened and polished it but it is still there. Please note that my car was not used between visits to BMW

Service

Welcomed opportunity to wait, which wasn't an option at my local dealer.

Service

Overall very pleased , but when I asked whether my service book would be stamped , I was told yes , but when I got home it wasn't , so I had to make a special journey to get it stamped and up to date .

Service

Met my expectations

Service

I felt the car was well taken care of (and I was impressed at the technology behind the service visit - linked to my car details).

Service

Very good apart from the vacuum and car wash which can be improved

Service

Quick and efficient service

Service

The car was fully serviced prior to collection and the brakes just wanted bedding in .and after a while would stop. We gave it a long while and then I asked again when I bought some accessories and was told that when it went in for its first service

Service

when i arrived to collect my car i was dealt with straight away and my car was clean and everything works as it should.

Service

Overall, happy with experience and outcome. Did not have much done and took longer than expected. Traffic around Bowker can be terrible - makes getting to/from an ordeal (not your fault) Comfortable waiting area.

Service

Nothing to fault

Service

As above

Service

Got straight in, courtesy car was ready waiting. Work was completed on time.

Service

I was completely satisfied with the service primarily due to the courtesy shown by the Gentlemen who collected my car from home and delivered it on Service completion. I must also mention the excellent follow up e-mail and video.

Service

Would have given 5 stars but there was a mistake on my bill which the service operator kindly adjusted when I questioned.

Service

They were the most accommodating BMW Centre I have visited! Excellent service from the girls on the front desk & Rachel who dealt with my problem!

Service

Convenient and great job

Service

The receptionist knew his stuff (he'd probably worked in the service department before as a mechanic). He said the probable cause of the leak (leaves collecting under the bonnet blocking a drain hole) would be checked anyway during the service.

Service

please see the above answer

Service

Everything done well in timely manner

Service

Again because your staff goes out of their way to be helpful.

Service

very professional.

Service

No issues on the day

Service

Helpful and open early to help with working that day. Many people working in the morning to cover a morning rush.

Service

All jobs done to high standards, but pricing is expensive

Service

Bowker provide an excellent service experience

Service

it was a wonderfull experience

Service

Polite staff, efficient and courteous service

Service

They always try their best to get me in even when I leave it a little late.

Service

All work done as specified. Knowledgeable staff, good environment

Service

Great service and staff

Service

There were no delays and no hang-ups

Service

1 star lost because on this visit BMW diagnostics could nit give me an answer."Computer says no" syndrome.

Everything completed as promised, and car valeted before collection.

Service
