I brought in my 2017 X5 thing spring for oil and winter tire change (winter to summer). They convinced me to pay extra for tire alignment since it's the M-Sport package which I obliged. 7 hours later, I received a phone call advising that the vehicle was ready for pickup. I pickup the vehicle, they performed the alignment and tire swap (for fee service) but didn't bother with the free maintenance (oil/filter). On top of that, they gouged the driver's window. A call to service, they fixed the damaged, replaced the tint, did the oil change and gave me concierge service so that I wouldn't need to drive back in. This was the professional thing to do and I honestly thought to myself that the issues were a one-off scenario. Come on, it's BMW right?
Fast forward to November 2018, it's time to put the winter tires on. Part of my winterization ritual is to clean/degrease, polish the rims (inside and face) and follow up with a thick coating of butter wet wax. The rims are in perfect condition as they should be since I paid close to $5000 for them last year (OEM BMW rims with tires). Since it takes about 40 minutes each rim, I notice anything and everything. If you haven't figured it out by now, I'm the type of person who puts a lot of attention to the details.
I drop off my vehicle at 7:30AM, get a shuttle to work and advise service that I need the car back by 2:30PM since I need to pick up my daughter at 3:00PM. Service informs me that it wont be a problem as I booked this 4 weeks in advance. Come 2:00PM, I get a phone call from service informing me that they are back logged and didn't even start. Obviously frustrating, why didn't they just call me the night before? I did appreciate them at least calling me to let me know. Definite thumbs up for this as I'd be in quite the pickle.
I come by to pick up the car but the service manager helped out and gave me a rental and assured me the vehicle will be ready by the following morning. Again, another thumbs up to try to make it right, obviously they understood that they made a mistake, unfortunately I'm sure they bumped someone else to make this happen.
Fast forward to 5:30PM, I get a phone call from service informing me that the vehicle is ready. I come pick it up at 6:45PM and low and behold, they are reporting that I gave them the vehicle with a severely scratched rim. You would think I would have noticed something this bad before since I just polished and waxed the rims prior to giving them to mount. I'm not sure how they can make this right. I can see exactly how this is going to unfold, they say I gave them like this, I say I didn't and poof nothing goes anywhere except frustration increases and everyone's time is wasted. Should I really take them to small claims court for a rim?
If you are considering bringing your expensive BMW here, please think again. Service is just terrible, maybe they'll make it right, maybe they wont. Maybe they'll perform the service you requested, maybe they wont. It's honestly a hit or miss, in my cases, just misses. Very expensive misses
For the money you're spending, go somewhere else. I just paid $159.99 + Tax for BMW to damage a $1000.00 Rim, make me beg them to service my car and now have to go threw the frustrations and additional cost to fix the rim.
