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

Good service received, however got a hire car that was on the fuel reserve and was told I needed to fill it up to the level it was at - I had to fill it up as soon as I drove out the car park

Service

Same as above

Service

immediate help and courtesy from Jessica at Seafield Rd

Service

They discovered the fault, were pro-active and did the repair quickly under the BMW guarantee, lending me a car overnight. All this for a new customer who had not even booked (as I did not know anything was wrong).

Service

Very helpful and professional service agent (Grace) but please see comments above

Service

See above. Both Andy and Jess exceeded my expectations. (They were pretty low due to my experience at Eastern BMW) They should be commended.

Service

On time, professional; checked about additional work before starting.

More work than expected was required on the vehicle but the reasons were well explained and some creative financing was offered to reduce the costs

We were promised a call back after completing the survey but didn't get one

Service

The lacquer on both front alloys is de-laminating and badly corroded. The car was confirmed by BMW for warranty replacements. The front passenger was then refused as it had been refurbished. The dealer knew this as they had refurbished it last year..

Service

Great courtesy car and great service!

Service

As always everyone was very attentive and helpful

Service

I got a text saying my Mini was ready when I had a BMW, no receipts or MOT certificate left in my vehicle.

Service

Very satisfied with the experience. I had asked for a list of all the work that was included in an inspection 2 service which was to be sent but I am still waiting on that

Service

I was contacted as part of the end of warranty check and MOT. I was given a courtesy car and Grace at Peter Vardy Seafield kept in touch to let me know what was happening.

Friendly staff. Always kept in touch and the video showing the work done was a nice touch.

I have dealt with Peter Vardy BMW now for over 8 years and with Ryan on the service desk a couple of times and find him very customer focused

My air on is not working

Service

Everything went to programme as planned and I was kept informed.

Service

The problem was addressed promptly and courteously and I felt valued as a customer

Service

Service as usual was excellent. The reason I was not completely satisfied related to my view that a fault with the air-conditioning should have been picked up at the warranty expiry check which took place 5 weeks earlier.

Service

good at r/pt, but the two new tyres fitted showed signs of the lubricant used to put tyres on with, this was particarly disappointing as one of the wheels had actually been reparied and should have been peffect- also one tyre valve is wrong colour

Good service with regular updates

The customer service element was quite good, but issues working out what was and what wasn't covered under warrenty were irritating.Added to which my rear windscreen wiper hasn't been fixed.

My dealings with the sales rep Mr Ross Green and the Technical support rep Josh O,brien were first class. The actions of senior sales staff in relation to the resale price of my trade in were a disgraceful way to treat a loyal customer.

The whole experience was just fantastic, I felt extremely valued. The handover by Josh was amazing, he spend so much time with me going through how every button, lever and dial worked.

Sales

The level of care and attention given was outstanding.

Sales

At time of purchase the staff were wonderful. However there was very little feedback during the waiting process, my handover was a fiasco, my private plate wasn't put on therefore I had no insurance, paperwork was wrong too.

Professionally conducted delivery on time with minimal fuss

Sales

Fabulous service. Harry was awesome throughout as was jamie at handover.

Sales

Issues with transfer of private plate and delay in getting trade in settlement payment.

Sales

I bought through Peter Vardy MINI centre because we bought a mini last year and got great service from Andrew Chisholm. We didn't use Peter Vardy BMW because we experienced poor handling by its sales staff who only seemed interested in sales bonuses.

Sales

The Sales representative (Tom) called me to alert me to the availability of BMW M2 and then supported me throughout the buying process - really helpful.

Sales

Staff knowledgeable and overall good experience

Sales

Service from moment I entered the dealership to that of conclusion, was excellent. The handover experience was unlike anything I have experienced, truly brilliant.

Sales

Extremely good customer service and thanks to James Haston for his help with this purchase

Sales

Lewis made sure that my wife and I got the car we wanted and when we wished to change the spec he sourced an Lci model and it was delivered before the road tax increase as promised.Delivery was very easy and Ayaz made my wife and I feel very relaxed

Sales

Not completely as apple iwatch was offered by the sales person over and above the service pack but was then retracted. Had lots of paperwork sent beforehand to sign and then had to complete same at collection. Duplication and inefficient bmw process

Sales

This was my first visit to Peter Vardy and i was extremely impressed.I have purchased 6 BMWS over the past 15 years at two other BMW garages but this was by far the best experience,the garages customer service is first class.

Sales

Staff dealing with Test Drive, sales, pre-contract CCA wants and needs, financing, payment and handover were knowledgeable, helpful and above all pleasant company.

Sales

it was was good, except twice I called Paul as I wanted to choose my own number plate as I had with Citroen previously, and he told me he would contact me when it was time to do this, he didn't and the number plate was chosen by him. felt cheated

Sales

The pick up was excellent, couldn't have gone better. Purchase was hard work. Salesmen struggled with the systems and didn't know the deals well. He was quite new and I realise that it can take a while to pick things up but he perhaps should suppor

Sales

Since 1991 I have purchased 16 new BMW from this excellent dealership. Behind every car sold is clearly a company that cares.

Sales

Had issues when I went to collect the car.The Gardx paintwork seal was un polished and unbuffed in a lot of areas,a good few water marks also and paintwork shine was well below my expectations.Not gleaming like the new model I bought back in 2014

Ross Green was absolutely fantastic, keeping me informed of progress of new car build and ensuring I got the car I was after. Well beyond my expectations.

Sales

Everything was what I asked for and on time. Sales process and the handover process were personable and relatable.

Sales

We found the service provided by Siobhan Mcgowan [ sales executive ] to be off the highest standard.Her friendly and knowledgeable persona made the whole experience easy and enjoyable.A great asset to BMW.
