  • I am very impressed with the excellent and prompt service at the headquarters. I wrote a letter to the CEO and I got a reply within two days. That is very humble and kind of them. I have never seen...  more »
  • The four round towers of the BMW headquarters symbolize the 4 pistons of a BMW engine. Even if this building cannot be visited - to my knowledge. The sight is astonishing and, alongside the BMW...  more »

  • BMW Jupiter Florida I went to get my tire fixed due to nails getting in them. The customer service to get a loan fee was great and was extremely fast. The most frustrating and unprofessional part of it all was when I got my vehicle back. After servicing my car I get it returned back to me with a dirty back seat and the passenger side back seat is dirty and distorted with the seat having air pockets in them as if something was left on the back seat too long. I realize this was not my fault as I did not drop my car off in this position. I notified the first tenant that gave me the car and the agreed it looked distorted. The second tenant to come was no help and only said “This was not our fault”. I continue to state it was not dropped off in this manner and they were the only ones with the car. Finally they bring the manager around and this is where things turned for the worst. The manager comes outside and with no hesitation looks at my car and says this is not there fault as the car maintenance team does not touch the seats. I continue to explain again that I did not leave my car in this condition and we need to fix this issue since the entire experience with BMW was great up until now and I only want my car to be taken care of. She told me this is not their fault and it was mine since they do not touch that part of the car. She offered me a complimentary car wash to shut me up and I said since you are not willing to appreciate what has been done that will solve nothing and I am going to leave. After my statement she says, that is fine and turns her back and walks away!!! This is unbelievable and terrible customer service. The manger turns her back, never apologizes about the experience I have had and walks back inside. This is not a BMW problem more than it is a dealership problem. The manager needs a course on customer service on how to handle problems. The entire experience was ruined by what happened but not only what happens but how it happened and what was done about it.
  • Very rude staff in the ground floor cafe. To us and to other customers. These people should not be employed in customer service. Take your own food and drinks instead!
