Dear Wayne Berry, I would like to bring to your attention the appalling customer service that I received at your Berry BMW Heathrow branch. In particular from your head of sales, Spencer Jacobs, who has treated me with contempt and utter disregard. Being a loyal customer that has owned several BMWs bought from different dealerships, I expect a certain level of customer service. At the very least I expect to be treated with respect and civility. I received no such service from this branch. I am disgusted at the way he spoke to me throughout our interactions, in which he provided me with no explanation as to why our deal was being reneged upon, and offered zero apologies. By way of background: I recently placed an order for a new BMW M3 at your Heathrow branch with Warren Cathcart (Sales associate) The deposit was paid promptly, documents signed and agreement reached over two months ago, with the car scheduled to be delivered on 1st September 2021. Subsequently I asked Warren to upgrade the car to the xdrive package, and Warren sent out the new invoice with the new information/costs for me to check and approve, which was agreed. The next day Warren sent me an email stating that your head of sales was not agreeing to this contract, despite knowing about it for the last two months, as well as taking my deposit and entering into a binding contract. Given that a signed contract was in effect between us this is a breach of contract by your dealership and I reserve my rights to the fullest extent in this regard. Compounding this, I had actually recently cancelled an existing M3 order from another branch as your Heathrow branch was closer to my home and I had entered into a contract with you in good faith and paid a deposit. My family frequently purchases BMWs and spend considerable amounts of money as we are normally impressed by their level of detail and customer service. Unfortunately, your dealership is a far cry from this, as I have been made to feel humiliated and worthless by your employee Spencer Jacobs. I was intending to spend over £80k which is not an inconsiderable sum, and was about to order another M3 from your branch for my brother. I regret to tell you they I have now decided against this and will never step foot in your dealership again. Furthermore, I am alerting all of my colleagues, friends and family of this incident. I have now placed an order with another BMW dealership, who I originally was going to buy from, and whilst their service is fortunately miles ahead of yours I will now have to take later delivery of the car which has caused me hardship. Accordingly, I reiterate, I reserve my rights under the contract that was signed between us to the fullest extent. As you are the owner of the dealership, and manage a successful franchise with the BMW brand synonymous with luxury and customer service, I have felt compelled to alert you to the shocking level of customer service taking place at this branch. If customers cannot rely on orders placed with your branch, notwithstanding that a deposit is paid and an agreement is in place, then your behaviour is nothing less than fraudulent and completely unconscionable. Additionally, I have reported this matter to BMW UK who are conducting their own investigation.
Left my m2 competition in for air coolant light on . And low tyre pressure indicator (tyre was not punctured). The tyre pressure light had been on for months with no issues. Upon handing car back. Tyre was completely flat. The air coolant light was still on. I was told by gary that theres nothing he could do as the workshop had closed and everyone had gone home. And I would have to book it back in. I was re assured the air coolant issue had been sorted and that the light would go out when I start driving. Driving on the m1 motorway the light for engine management and engine over heating has come on . There was no where safe for me to stop. With 500metres to half a mile maybe to go from when I have seen the light come on the car cuts out at junction 1 of the m1 motorway. I had it recovered to a different BMW garage. And on the first day and second day they had given me diagnostics that bmw at heathrow had not fixed the car correctly. There were clips missing from what I believe is the radiator. After he told me this I asked him to liaise with heathrow to fix under warranty. On the third day the story had been changed after they had spoken with heathrow and apparently there was a whole in the radiator and it was not covered under warranty. Now I am going legal.. it's clear that not only there was negligence but now seems to be some type of sabotage cover up to prevent them from fixing my car. I have spoken now to many people that have had very similar experiences. So it seems it is common practice for them. The car is 19 months old with approx 10500 miles. The car has not done many miles and should not be having these problems. THIS IS COMMON PRACTICE FOR THIS GARAGE . DO YOUR RESEARCH. YOU WILL SEE THE TRUTH BEHIND FAKE POSITIVE REVIEWS.
Do not use. worst BMW service dealer ever.
Very helpful and always got back to me when they said they would.
The service team was able to get my car booked in as a key worked at very short notice. Same day turnaround. Not what i expected at all.
Car was collected and delivered on time and the car was cleaned really well. Was able to video chat with them to discuss an issue i was having with the car.

Thank you for your review. We're glad to hear that we were able to get everything sorted for you. Enjoy your new car.
Have been searching for a car for a while and Berry has been really helpful with helping me make the right decision. They kept me updated with their stock and managed to get a really good price.

Glad to hear that we could source you a car that suited your needs. See you soon. Regards
My daughter took her car here whilst at uni. Was quoted around £1900 for necessary repairs. She was told it was unsafe to drive. Luckily we didn’t believe this and retrieved the car and took it to our local mini dealership- total cost was £113!!! Wouldn’t trust them to look at my push bike!
Bought a car 6 months ago. Battery discharged when away and I'm told kit covered under warranty. After sales manager, Dazza Grantham (used car salesman) is refusing to pay anything or for the repair. These people are everything that is bad about car sales. Do not buy a car from them.
Bought used X5 from Berry Heathrow BMW Centre which was well priced for the spec. However..,,,,when I collected the car it was not fully cleaned inside and the tyres were all set at incorrect pressures with a slow puncture in the front left. First world problems, but the preparation was well below BMW standards. Feels more like a car supermarket....
