Had to take my recent 2nd hand purchase back for new rear discs despite only having 10k miles.

Service

Customer service was very good - knowledgeable staff and polite. Phoned when work had been completed.

Service

The service was done on time and with minimum delay, but I feel £375 for an oil service is very very expensive.

Very pleasant stay at the dealership, comfortable seating area, good coffee to drink, staff very pleasant and helpful, lovely and clean amenities, good experience overall.

Service

Michael did a great job and I felt valued as a customer.

Service

Whilst the work done is great, every time I ask for something else it's forgotten or not done. Staff are usually polite and friendly

Service

Service completed earlier than promised. Good communication with service advisor (Michael). No problems.

Service

I reported a 'sqeaky' wheel which the technician was unable to find. Marc on the service desk came out with me to see if he could hear it but neither of could. He also offered me some great advise and was a pleasure to deal with. Great service!

Service

Couldn't fix the fault on first visit

Service
Thank you your feedback, On occasion we come up against a reported fault which we struggle to replicate when the car is with us. When this occurs, we do work with the owner of the car to work out a method of curing the problem when it next happens. Whilst this is not always ideal, we thank you for your co-operation.

Always great service

I thought an engineers report would be accurate but have since found out it is only a rough guess at what it might be.

I had a service but I'm confused as to why my car is now telling me u need another service in January- surely it doesn't need another service 4 months later?

Service

all very efficient

Service

Told car would be done asap around 5pm. no call so went back at 5pm as it was just driving out of the servicing area.

Service

All went well and they were professional in the communication during their time with the car.

Service

Car not cleaned

Service

Very good service but price of service quite high

Service

No test drive as I suggested, just over one mile driven, would not have found the issue in such a short time.

Service

Work completed to a high standard Service team especially Mike Lee very helpful and professional

Service

Service staff are very helpful and friendly the courtesy car was provided as promised

Service

very speedy service

Service

Gary and his team are excellent at what they do best, looking after their customers.

Service

Arden always give a good service

Service

No issues, just great service.

Service

Seemed there was confusion over the recal item relating to my E64

Service

Time keeping was excellent, polite staff and good environment to spend 2 hours waiting.

Service

Complaint of rattle was taken seriously and extra time taken to resolve. Hopefully rattle now resolved!

Service

Appointments are difficult to book as the local dealership is very busy. No follow up email or text to confirm appointment. They were going to charge me £15 for a courtesy car per day while my car was getting serviced. It was free at Audi.

Service

My car was repaired well after an accident. However the incorrect alloy wheel was repaired so now the car has to go back. Further am unhappy with the courtesy car given. I have BMW insurance that should provide like for like replacement.

Service

Customer service was first class

Service

£450.00 to have a dash cam fitted that I don't know how to use.

Service

The staff explained everything and all the work was carried out on time.

Service

Good communication

Service

An adviser did not take me to view the car to inspect the work; I was told it was ready to view on the forecourt. For the sum of money spent I would have expected the car to be valeted; instead I was treated with a car that had compound inside & out.

Service

The service centre are excellent - I had recently 1200 miles to travel on my car before the next service which was booked - your guys called me fitted in the service so I didn't have to pay again - that's above and beyond to me

Service

5 starsjust missed.. but for the fact that the complimentary wash after servicing left a quarter of each wheel grubby..perhaps a bit more attention would have avoided me having to get them fully cleaned afterwards. Nit picking I know but you are BMW

Service

Easy to book , phone call to confirm everything and mot etc auctioned very quickly

Service

Staff top

Service

Good knowledge of parts and also sent me pictures via email to confirm the parts I wanted. Special thanks to Ashley Upton for this.

Service

Arden carried out all the works that I requested in a professional manner.

Service

The staff were good and only doing their job however i will investigate further if no response is given in to service

Service

All work carried out to the usual very high BMW standard

Service

Needed brake fluid change - Told service adviser would need to wait for car, as no service car replacement available for 4 weeks. Then told to plan for service to have car for 3.5 hours to complete service. 3.5 hrs for a break fluid change - Never.

Service

Good Service

Service

I booked a fast lane service, to then arrive and be told that I'd have to wait 5 hours. If fastlane isn't applicable for a service, it shouldn't be available as an option.

Service

Car was washed but not to a good level and the response from staff was poor

Service
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback, I will pass this on to the relevant department.

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.

Sales

Smooth handover and when there were issues with the car, they were handled and dealt with professionally.

Sales

I am very satisfied with my experience during the purchase of my car, all questions were answered

Sales

The team at Arden was brilliant , especially Ryan , he was the main reason we stayed in the showroom long enough to be amazed by the new X5.

Sales

It would have been 5 if the finance system hadn't gone down the day before so I had a wasted trip and therefore the pickup day was 2hrs longer

Sales

Great communication

Sales

Friendly and helpful.

Sales

I always buy my cars with Terry and Matt and I always feel they are working with me to help me - this time I wanted an x3 and they found a way to help me achieve my goal rather than accept the x1 which was my second choice

Sales

Things were great up until picking the car up as the chips have not been done as promised

Sales

Purchase was really smooth and they made it very exciting. My car was also delivered earlier than expected which was great!

Sales

Arden Maidstone has a large, modern, comfortable showroom. We were treated as valued (first time) customers. From initial contact, through test drive, ordering and delivery, each stage went as planned.
