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

My car was returned late but I received updates and a full apology. I understand that sometimes things do not go to plan. Grace did a super job!

Service

Able to work whilst waiting, complementary drinks and snacks available and looked after courteously.

Service

I arrived at Peter Vardy without an appointment as the engine warning light came on while driving towards Edinburgh. I was told that the diagnostics would take up to 4 hours and I had to change my plans for that day.

Service

Service department were extremely helpful and met all my needs

Service

Issue with appointment for 1st service..

Service

Expected the car to be clean when it came back

Service

1st class service from initial call to return of car

Service

Basically as above. What else is there ?

Service

Had some problems with the car. And a rude service rep. Won't be having bmw do any work on the car in the future

Service

Friendly and informative.

Similar to the above. Look at my customer record regarding the headlight levelling issues. Again happy to discuss

Service

Wasn't given a time for service, had to wait longer than expected

Service

Great staff great facilities, and fantastic service

Service

Very satisfied, I was kept up to date by text message letting me know what was happening thanks to Jessica. Unfortunately I wasn't given an MOT Certificate when I left, but I never noticed until I was home. I tried phoning but couldn't get through.

Service

Delivered car at 0800 and was told would be ready at 1700 which it was.Eveything was attended to and car was returned clean.Had hoped it might have been ready earlier but as I had not requested that I cannot really complain.

Service

Can't fault the service. When you walk into the Peter Vardy showroom the staff make you feel so welcome.

Service

Was given the opportunity to hand my car in within a day or so, and the lights were replaced foc. Grace in Service Dept was very courteous and helpful.

Service

Car went to get rear window electrics and washer line sorted. The washer pump now has NO pressure to it so is useless for the front windscreen and trickles out the back. My car radio has lost all its stations and the FM now doesn't work.

Service

Very professional and courteous service

Service

I was given assurance regards a couple of points that i raised and given advice about any future attention that may be required.

Service

Well looked after

Service

Friendly staff and a very streamline service with message updates of the cars progress which gives you comfort that work is being done.

Service

Good staff, efficient procedures. I don't understand why oil should cost £90 and I don't understand why I am charged to refill my windscreen wash when it is already full. This appears to be fraudulent

Service

Completely happy with overall service experience and very well looked after by Grace.

Service

No problems. I'm not really into the video messages from the engineers but others may find it useful.

Service

Kept informed

Service

The sales team were excellent, they were very friendly, helpfull and efficient in processing the car. I was just disappointed to not receive any feedback on the engine management issue.

Service

Multiple failings from multiple sales staff leading to a terrible experience of buying a car.

Service

Dealer failed to understand that having had previous same cars the bonnet was not operating as it did on these and tried to tell me it was fine. It wasn't.

Service

Loved the video of the health check without additional upselling. Very informative and So refreshing just to have an honest view without being sold additional services . Great to have the car valeted too Foc.

Service

I was disappointed with this service. No courtesy car available. Impossible to find out timing for job completion... phonecalls routed through Glasgow who failed to connect, arrange reply and cannot read service info online. Final bill in error

Service

I can't fault the service

Impossible to talk to anyone who could help over the phone, until I go through to Complaints on 18 of Feb.

Service

Having bought our X1 from Peter Vardy in Edinburgh some 18 months ago, whenever we have had an issue or a normal inspection re-call, Peter Vardy's Staff and level of service have been second to none.

Every thing was great

Very poor service can come back dirtier that it went away I was not told whet the engineers done on my car very disy

Service

Car was repaired quickly

Well I normally get offered the best price deal for Mot etc - this time I had to find a better deal elsewhere and then you matched it! charges - £190 to check what if anything was wrong with electric left side rear mirror - not to fix it just check

i had to cancel my garage appointment till the next day and when iI booked in at 11.30 I was told it should be 14.00 but that was the time I had booked in the previous day and I never left the garage till 14.30, I complained but got no apology of any

Service

Received marketing material despite twice asking not to. Charged for screenshot at service - none added. I told you when I booked the car in it needed new front tyres. You told me 4 days later it needed new front tyres. Over £400 for two tyres!?

Service

prompt service , polite

Service

All done very efficiently and quickly with the least amount of fuss possible

Service

Car was in for servicing - we were reminded by text, told when the car would be ready, phoned when the car was ready and collected the car with a friendly handover.

I suffered a puncture to a run flat tyre 140 miles from home.It took 3,5 working days to supply and fit a replacement tyre.

Service

From booking appointment to collecting car everything went smoothly. Driver of courtesy bus bang on time for pick up. Car sparkling and most importantly the knowledge my car has been serviced by fuuly trained technicians. Stress free service. Thanks

Service

Grace and Rory were great to deal with, very understanding and happy to help. I was kept up to date throughout my experience and to top it off I had the car back within a few days!

Pleasant surroundings - bit concerned by amount of time to close out between car service complete and being washed and ready for pick-up

Excellent service supported by good communications if a little expensive.

Service

They keep you informed every step through the service of your car.

Service

On picking up my car I was repeatedly asked to complete this survey and make sure I give full marks because it goes towards the salesperson bonus. The service was perfect but I don't need to be told how to fill in my experience by the salesperson

Service

No problems.

Service

I was looked after very well and all expectations where met

Service

Only one frustrating issue. The bill is really hard to understand with the cryptic codes, letters and descriptions. Needs serious improvement from the customers petsoective.

Excellent customer service, welcoming staff, comfortable waiting areas with WiFi, coffee and pastries made available! Peter Vardy certainly meets my expectations from the BMW brand

Explained ever stage what would happen sending me emails

promptly attended to by Grace and car ready on time

Everything went smoothly and all complete in one day. Information and advice were given when required.

Service

inability to meet given times for completion of wok

Service

First class

Service

Very efficient and friendly staff, excllent tea and cake too!

Service

when I called to make the point that the car was returned with a warning light on, I was asked whether the car was under warranty, as maybe I wanted it picked up by bmw roadside assistance. the right answer would be to check it first.

Service

Good service, but very expensive.

Service

I was only somewhat satisfied as whilst everyone seems professional my issues were not resolved and I did feel like I was being fobbed off to see if I would go away.

Service

I had to wait for more that an hour after the original completion time I was given, and I could not be given an invoice at the time.

Service

Efficient and trustworthy

Service

When I checked-in the vehicle, a task was removed from the job card. When we picked-up the car later that day, we still had a red service warning because the task was overdue. We had to return the car and wait for that service to be completed.

Service

I was impressed with the video of the checks to my car.

Service

They have been always helpful.

Service

Both cars are serviced here and regularly valeted. Good service, friendly people

Service

I had a point of contact in the servicing team (Grace Watson) who was very helpful. I was given updates as to progress and anticipated time for completion of works. Grace also arranged for me to speak to Sales before I picked up my car, as requested.

Service

Slightly inconvenient not having use of a car for a day and travel to & from garage is a bit of a treck

Service

I am always completely satisfied with my service experience at Peter Vardy's.

Service

I booked my car in to be serviced online, which gave me an idea how much the service would cost, so when the service agent gave me a totally different price which was more expensive, I referred her to the BMW site, she told me she was unaware of this

Service

A seamless process from dropping the car off to collecting it . Information on state of tyres etc., relayed by phone, as is advising that the car is ready.

No issues

Always welcomed and helpful staff

The car collection and redilivery were good but the repair was poor.

unprofessional and lies throughout the process

Because my problem was solved easily and quickly.

Service

Always great customer service from Jess. Kind and friendly with a hint of fire that is needed to work in the service dept.

Service

My car was in for a oil service(it's first service) no break down of anything else checked? Contacted the same day to say it would be in over night as I had complained of squeaky breaks, no contact the day after then contacted on day 3 car ready

Service

It can take a long time to simply drop off and pick up a car. Often going over information that has already been discussed.

Service

All work carried out on time, and within the agreed time. The person that was put in charge of liaising with me did an excellent job, and could not have been more helpful.

I purchased my car from yourselves and was told the deal included three years servicing which it turned out not to have only two years upon trying to exchange the car after the salesman had said the vehicle had guaranteed value it would appear not

Labor costs seemed high compared with other garages. Staff service was great.

Service

A little disappointed at the standard of loan car, always previously very pleased but this time was a let down

Service

Jess and the front desk team were great, Brian in the garage was fab and nothing was too much trouble for them to do- even the four trips to my car to get something out of the boot!

Service

Jessica is such a delight and a lovely helpful generous girl, my car was booked in for an mot and she got me my lunch from her own money. Service was quick and cheap.

Service

The video was very useful and thorough. I felt assured I was getting value for money.

Service

All staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful - a really comfortable environment in which to make a purchase.

Sales

I feel you are properly looked after and time is taken to help you with your next purchase, there is no pressure and everything is explained. The service provided is personal and you are made to feel relaxed and informed through the whole process.

Sales

All went smoothly and staff were very helpful

Sales

Guys at Peter Vardy Edinburgh were great. Fully understanding and not pushy in any way.

Sales

The way the car was presented was first class and I was always kept informed of when my car would be ready for collection

Sales

The sales consultant kept me regularly updated and the turnaround of paperwork was good. I don't feel the need for the "big reveal" every time I get a car though - first time, fair enough, but as an existing customer, no!

Sales

Went above and beyond to meet expectations and impress.

Sales

My sale's advisor Tom Pawlicki and trainee Valentino were great at every point. I've been delivered an exceptional service from the very first visit. I'm fully satisfied with purchase and would higly recommend to everyone!! Thank you to all Team!

No complaints. Everything went very smoothly despite me having to work to a tight delivery schedule

From pre sale to driving out the show room everything top notch. I hadn't driven an automatic before and both sales and handover assisted me with overcoming this. At handover especially I was given help with a few circles round the car park.

Sales

Wasn't pushed at all to buy car

Sales

Excellent

Sales

From the initial enquiry through to the vehicle handover the customer service was exceptional both from Tomasz and Sarah.

Sales

Set up was great with something for everyone and plenty of staff to support

Sales

Alan McMillan was an excellent advisor. He listened to my needs and gave me the most appropriate options. I found him friendly, professional, but above all, honest. Show room staff were excellent too. Very accommodating.

Sales

The internal trim is wrong. I sent my bmw online spec link but because one of the items is a zero cost option (black gloss trim v aluminium/ blue msport trim) it was never shown anywhere and picked up

Sales

Everything was very well handled by the Peter Vardy staff.

Sales

Great service from Ross and Ali

Happy with overall experience

The only disappointment was being kept waiting 20 mins beyond scheduled appointment.

Sales

Kieran was helpful and friendly on the day we bought the car. Nothing was too much trouble.

Sales

Great service from Chris

Sales

Excellent service from Alan McMillan

Sales

On the day I came to pick up the car there was a lot of waiting around and multiple people trying to sort out paperwork and long waits between 'just going to fetch my laptop' then not returning for a while. Apart from this everything was great.

Sales

The guys were knowledgeable & nothing was too much trouble special thanks should go to Zac, Guy & Brian

Sales

Sales team have been great made to feel very welcome and everything went well when picking my new car up

Sales

As before, very relaxed & comfortable process

Sales

I WAS EXTREMELY SATISFIED. TOMASZ PAWLICKI IS PROBABLY THE BEST SALES EXEC I'VE USED, WHO'S CONCERN IS MORE ABOUT CUSTOMER SATISFACTION THAN ANYTHING. THE HANDOVER WAS DEALT WITH VERY EFFICIENTLY.

Sales

Was kept completely up to date, paperwork was all done swiftly and delivery was quick

Sales

Easy and fast

Sales

Sales

Friendly, professional service. No hassle!

Sales

I was kept updated by Alan of the progress of my car from order to collection.

Sales

Quality of engagement, communications, and handover. We felt taken care of from the start

Sales

I am very much satisfied with the purchase and the service from Gareth and James. Should have been given more time for delivery, as the 1hr slot is enough.

Sales

I didn't appreciate the email from the dealership asking me to give top marks in this survey. Had I not received that email I would have scored the dealership top marks.

Sales

The salesman Thomaz was very knowledgeable and really helped me during the process.

Sales

Sales team were first class, Alan and James from BMW Edinburgh branch were terrific in both their manner and proffesionalism throughout

Sales

Attentive, helpful, answered all relevant questions and in particular found solution when unhappy re M Sport suspension

Sales

Best experience I have had buying a car. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and made sure the car was what I wanted.

Sales

BMW UK Ltd (the importer of the car I ordered) did not deliver a car with all the options that I paid for. The dealer had to do a reconfiguration of the car (the boot) to get the car into a state that was acceptable to me.
