The only issue I have on this visit was on the valet of my vehicle. In the past this has always been exceptional, however on this particular occasion, it wasn't. The steering wheel was sticky; which it wasn't when the car was brought in,

Service

Been taking my cars to Bowker since 2008 and always had good service

Service

Work carried out satis with little delay: however, neither Bowker Preston or Bowker Blackburn seem able to update the service records onboard my car 'right first time'. This is disappointing

No problems what so ever in booking car in for service over the phone, and courtesy car provided at no cost, and service completed as required with no problems.

Service

took car in night before...had car all day friday and not one call to me on the friday to update me on what was happening (i had to ring bowker) terrible communication from staff. provided me with courtesy car with no fuel.

Courtesy car arranged prior to service i none available on arrival taxi provided but this left me without a car all day. Taxi sent to take me to my car when service completed. Not satisfactory.

Service

Because i have always found them to be customer aware

Going in for third attempt to cure seat problems.

Service

Lack of ownership throughout

I have received a high level of customer service. However, my wife visited with the car on the last service and due to the misunderstanding of the BMW service package, she paid for the interim service. I realise this is a BMW UK issue.

Service

Michelle Pearsonlee was an excellent Service Advisor. She helped me stay mobile whilst being frustrated by another BMW Centre as they were delaying in authorising works.

Service

Not enough characters too explain the issue. If you want more details, feel free to get in contact with myself.

Service
