As i said, perfectly satisfied.

Service

Peace of mind

Service

As above, I was kept waiting for three hours to solve a problem that your technician created. You charge your labour out at £120+ an hour yet I was left feeling like my time was worthless.

Service

Your staff helped me by ensuring the work was completed in good time as I had an unexpected appointment elsewhere.

Service

As above plus professional courteous staff.

Service

Prompt well informed team dealing with the service.

Service

Phoning in to Ocean seems to go via a call centre which makes finding a particular person difficult as the staff appear to be on a different site.

Service

Defect diagnosis and resolution is ongoing.

Service

Upon booking over the phone, was informed that my booking time was 08:00 on a Saturday. Upon arrival at Ocean Plymouth, I find the premises deserted and at 08:20 a member of the team arrives to state that they only open from 08:30.*

Service

Professional, helpful and efficient service

Service

Fully explained the service to me and delivered what I had been told.

Service

The recall and health check were carried out quickly and thoroughly and I was given a courtesy car for the day. I received a call during the check to advise me that the rear brake pads were wearing, so they were replaced at the same time.

Service

Adrian knows what I want and always helps me set up the cars.

Service

Excellent service

Service

Because of the above and my wifes mini has been in for warranty work also and work carried out twice had to be re done as not done properly in first place.This was at Ocean

Service

I was told the service would take around 90 minutes. On returning to the garage after an hour, the mechanic was only just moving car to commence work. It ended up taking 2 hours. You were unable to complete the service due to lack of spares.

Service

nothing too much trouble

Service

My car was serviced but lacked the usual information/feedback i.e. did not receive a visual inspection video nor did I receive any check sheets advising on things like tyre wear, brake pad wear. Always had this in the past but just had the bill!

Service

Value for money and attentive staff.

Service

Now, while every aspect is carried out as necessary, it just seems a bit more off hand. It doesn't give the impression anymore that you as the customer are special. Maybe its as I only have a 5 year old Series 1, I'd like to think not.

Service

it speaks for itself

Service

On the first occasion, whilst trying to find the cause of the REM fault on the car, it was returned to me with damage to the rear bumper. However, this was duly repaired on the second occasion it was sent back with continuing REM problems.

Service

I had a phone call to say they was short on courtesy cars and that day I had work The service manager was happy to pay for a taxi to get me to work and pick me up from work when I finished which I thought was very helpful taxi was on time as well

Service

Very efficient and excellent service.

Service

A little disappointed with the quality of my service had to have 4 new tyres fitted as stated on my MOT which was done by a national tyre company. they found my steering geometry was way out having been checked by Ocean on the service 2 days before.

Service

i had to replace the front tyres (run flat) on the car at about 12000 miles - not because they were worn evenly across but because the outer shoulder was completely worn away about 1inch across of tread. The rest of the tyre still had about 2.5mm.

Service

Besides looking after me and the car, they were very considerate that the experience should proceed without too much inconvenience to me and friends because of the un fortunate fact that I had to go to a funeral service.

Service

Good but service not quite as good as normal - not as friendly, less helpful when it comes to choosing dates/times.

Service

Waited over a week when could not use car and then after fault fixed the same engine management red alert came back and now waiting to 18th Dec before it can go in again. I gave dealer a AA report on engine fault but don’t think anyone read it.

Service

I was well informed on what was done and items that were used for servicing.

Service

I waited for the service and they delivered it back to me in time even though I had new brake pads fitted

Service

Do to what must have been a misunderstanding the work package I was expecting was not completed.

Service

Good customer service/ front of house, however I was surprised there was a dirt mark left on the cream leather of the car interior when it was returned to me after service and complimentary wash and vacuum of the car.

Service

I found the whole experience totally chaotic, confused and extremally unprofessional. My initial call handled amateurish, I had to follow up and told 3 different service requirements, not offered curtesy car. no report, video, follow up, apology.

Service

Good staff and service.

Service

Car Booked in, received on time, good advance information as to possible costs, kept fully informed as to progress, car returned on time. Courteous attention from staff throughout,

Service

From the initial contact by Ocean BMW to remind me the service & MOT was due to returnig my car after the service etc. excellent but a little expensive.

Service

Very helpful staff

Service

A Service Manager that tells me heavy braking will sort out my brakes.An attempt to sell ad-blue at 250% more than any supermarket.

Service

Car was serviced and cleaned, also sorted out getting it to the body shop for an annual check up. Loan car was very good too from the body shop.

Service

Because it is a fact.

Service

This question is essentially answered above; will add here that we have been very favourably impressed overall by Ocean Plymouth. The showroom and waiting areas are excellent. The staff are patient and helpful and clearly committed to promoting BMW.

Service

Service reception was very busy when I arrived, consequently my car was a little late being checked in. It was in for it's first service and Ocean wanted to also fit an item which was the subject of a recall, which I had not previously been informed

Service

Excellent service!

Service

No complaints.

Service

Good friendly service

Service

I aske for a winter check. However had tyre warning that tyres required inflating- about a week later. This was done but I had assumed it would have been checked at the service.

Service

always treat you well

Service

Issues sorted and kept up to date at all times.

Service

Best BMW dealer in the country's!

Service

Friendly and very helpful

Service

Everything was done to a satisfactory standard and the car was ready on time.

Service

Good value for money, good reporting of the service

Service

As above, and also their was a delay in getting my courtesy car which made me late for my first appointment. When I collected my car, the original girl said to a gentleman who offered to collect my car: it’s only on lease! Which I was Very surprise

Service

Still have 2x faults that car went in for.Boot does not always open . ( now on video ).Brakes still grinding and scrapping.Was told nothing found???

Service

You did what the service required

Service

Staff polite and helpful. Service cost was actually cheaper than quoted, which instills confidence in their honesty.

Service

The standard of workmanship and the care taken were excellent. The service team were less proactive than usual in keeping me informed about progress.

Service

No problem encountered in the process

Service

NOTHING TOO MUCH TROUBLE AND FULLY EXPLAINED

Service

Failed to perform promised valeting although did agree to carry this over to next visit.

Service

everything they said they would do they did

Service

The usual faultless attention. Only one problem after the service and M.O.T was the windscreen washer did not work the following day.

Service

Quick and efficient

Service

Serviced ,cleaned car at the time to suit me .aldo provided a hire car for the day

Service

I would have scored you five stars, but I was disappointed to be told that I am no longer able to fold my door mirrors in, with my key, when locking my car, nor can I take down the sun roof when I open the car (again using my key).

Service

The service was very expensive given that it was completed in around just one hour or less, and almost excluseively comprised of simple observations.

Service

The people at Ocean Plymouth have been great as regards to 5 yrs of servicing my car.

Service

I was kept informed and updated regularly

Sales

All good

Sales

Great salesman good knowledge not pushy

Sales

er...because I was completely satisfied

Sales

5 says it all!

Sales

Excellent customer service, patience and attention to detail provided by sales consultant Steven Hancock

Sales

The car was ready and waiting in the showroom for me to inspect and was informed of all the functions.

Sales

Again as before our Sales Executive Adrian Rundle kept us up to date in the progress of the car through ordering, build and delivery. Excellent service.

Sales

After visiting other make dealerships and not getting even spoken to sometimes, I would now in future go nowhere else but to thus BMW centre, everyone so helpful

Sales

The only downside was having to drive from St Albans to Plymouth and back to collect and part exchange but other than that the dealer could not be faulted

Sales

Am always greeted in a friendly professional manner - made to feel welcome and a valued customer

Sales

Experienced and knowledgeable staff.

Sales

Having previously purchased 3 x new cars from Ocean BMW over the last 15 years, I was pleased to receive the same friendly advice and assistance from the sales team - the standards of courteous help and knowledge have remained impressively high.

Sales

Everything ran so smoothly. It was just an easy and pleasant experience from start to finish.

Sales

The team at Ocean (Plymouth) was great. Gareth looked after me at the start then it got handed over to Gary Smith and he delt with everything so well! ??Top blokes I’m trying to push more sales their way ????

Sales

Everything was arranged around my requirements and for my convenience. First class.

Sales

Overall very good. One complaint is that there is too much time spent on additional products, namely insurance related, tyres, GAP, etc. While it may be a legal requirement to have to sign that you have received the information, it is not needed
