Work was carried out in the time scale they said it would be. Service advisors very helpful and knowledgeable.

Service

The service was carried out with the time they specified and they identified what was needed, the only issue was the part that I was quoted was nearly double in price in what it would cost to get it done independently

Service

I feel that the sales team have given me an excise based on lies and misinformation and don't care About after sale service.

Service

Service centre work was fine. Advice prior to car going to them was lacking.

Service

Service excellent

A little slower than normal, this time

The curtesy car wasn't ready for my wife making her potentially late for work, after which the car that was given to my wife ran out of fuel 4 miles down the road, so she had to walk to a garage and purchase a fuel can to take back to the car!

Excellent service this service was done on a time which suited us

The whole process didn't take long, I had a cup of tea while I was waiting and they washed the car before they gave it back to me.

Service

I appreciated the free health check however my car was only booked in for a battery coding which was meant to be 30 mins, I was in there for 3 hours after. They did a health check which I didn't ask for.

Service

Having just been relieved of nearly 400pounds my car was presented back to me after being 'washed' but clearly washed by by someone whose sight needs to be checked. There were parts of my vehicle that were missed completely and water marks & streaks.

Car was serviced as arranged and courtesy car was nice

The service on the car started promtly and was completed on shedual, what more can you ask

Poor customer care

I am lucky to have Arden's Body Shop manager as a near neighbour who is very happy to collect and return the car saving me the trouble of having to do it myself. Staff always courteous and friendly.

Service

You said what you would do and did it.

Service

I was also told I would need to pay for a sat nav update that they later agreed was covered under warranty. My car was also totally factory reset and a simple USB backup of my seat positions etc was not taken. I only found out when getting back in

The car was put in our garage immediately following the service. Not driven for for 9 weeks.On starting, a warning message appeared that the coolant was low. Car topped up with 1.5 ltrs of coolant at garage. No real explanation given by garage.

I was told my rear disks needed replacing, but when I took a second opinion I was told they weren't needed

Although pick up and communication on service excellent , they found that we needed something done to the exhaust and hadn't the part and when we asked for someone to ring us back as to when they could repair the exhaust they never returned our cal

Service

as above, although the correct tyres were eventually located and fitted on a second visit

Service

All ok with the servicing but did not vacuum car as agreed

Service

Had to wait 2 hours after being told car ready at 4pm. The inboard computer wasn't reset with the details of oil change been done,I have now got to revisit Ardens for them to resolve.

Service

The service personnel have always exceeded with their efforts to ensure all visits are dealt with a speedily and with consideration, especially the personnel front of house, who go the extra mile to provide special attention to your specific requests

Service

The staff are always very helpful, but having to book the car in some 6 weeks in advance to secure a courtesy car is excessive.

Elise arranged for my car to be sorted while I waited, even though I had not booked an appointment.

To have failed brake discs after 2.5 years with a low mileage car isn't right, but the answers I got from BMW were disappointing.

Car was booked in quickly when fault occurred, think it's not great service that can't accommodate people with a loan car unless you book in 6 weeks advanced. Especially with amount I'm paying for my car. Car was washed very badly! Needs improvement

as above, apart from one incident, extremely good.

Service

Problem was correctly identified and rectified (as opposed to a previous incorrect "diagnosis" by Stephen James @ Ruxley)

Service

Car was booked in for EGR Cooler recall. Car was making unusual noise driving home after collecting vehicle. I found the air intake disconnected in two places.

Service

Everything went well, although it took longer than I anticipated.

Service

friendly and good communication

Service

They took advantage of me (ripped me off) whenever they could. Disorganised, have very little product knowledge, advising wrongly on safety issues that could harm people, stealing my deposit to help their centre deposit, not honoring deals on offer

Sales

Great staff and very friendly, also I had my toddler with me and she was made very welcome.

Sales

Luke Wilkinson looked after this sale very well and delivered excellent customer service.

Sales

A really nice place to purchase a car from, especially after the extensive refurbishment a couple of years ago. And its only approx a mile from my home so really easy for me to call in regularly.

Sales

Once again I was very satisfied with the service

Sales

Charles T at Arden Maidstone kept me informed throughout the entire process, even to the point of offering a higher spec car when one became available. Very impressive for a Palace fan.

Sales

The sales manager I dealt with at Arden Maidstone (Charles Theofanous) was excellent. The facilities are good and the whole experience of collecting the vehicle was seamless. Thoroughly enjoyed the day!

Sales

Friendly helpful people

Sales

After a shaky start i was treated really well

Sales

Steve Hudson was very helpful from start to finish. The only minor hiccups were of my making.

Sales

Friendly . Completing paper work easy .

Sales

Damian Daniels was a fantastic Sales guy, he walked me through all the options, gave me a fantastic discount which is why I am still with BMW.

Sales

As said above there are items that should have better

Sales

Car wasn't ready on collection - fault with sound meant handover had to be delayed. Also boot mat purchased with new car is not a great fit - I wasn't warned / asked on purchasing the mat that it didn't fit properly.

Sales

Salesman is brilliant

Sales

Made very welcome and had a good range of cars on display

Sales

The only problem was the back windows are noisy

Sales

There is one major outstanding issue that I am awaiting resolution on. The price of the new car was agreed in July 2019 and the price agreed. The order was placed. However, *AFTER* delivery I was told that the Road Tax I'd been charged was wrong.

Sales

I love my car

Sales

Whole experience was very good this time salesman was very good

Sales

Very personal service and attention to detail.
