    Hey guys, I have booked my car in for something with Dick Lovett Swindon but have never used them before.

    It's a long story and it coincides with working away and visiting friends, but after getting nowhere with local stealers giving the flippin runaround I got an answer and price straight away from these guys.

    Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with them? Are they good? Hourly rate ok etc?

    Also, do you think they will price match with Glasgow or Edinburgh dealers with it being so far away (providing I get a flippin straight answer!).

    Any info much appreciated. Cheers. Red.

    Red I pulled this from : http://www.unixnerd.demon.co.uk/garages_seng.html - I have no experience with them though

    Dick Lovett BMW Swindon, Wiltshire Appauling recommendations after service, once checked out with independant BMW specialist one lot of work not required and other BMW technicians fault. Did not get offered 4+ discount. Staff not too knowledgeable. They think a BMW 535i Sport is over the hill at 5 years old with 50,000 miles on the clock. Will never go back to them. Suggest others take their business to PC Autocare, the Independant BMW Specialist at Lydiard Millicent
    Also:

    Avoid like the plague. Con artists. Staff unknowledgeable, took 10 hours to diagnose a fault over an 8 day period, then had cheek to charge me over £2000 for a broken high pressure fuel injector

    Also:

    12/02/08: Avoid this garage at all costs. A full service failed to find leaking radiator even though we told them exact point it was leaking from. Also failed to notice 2 excessively worn shock absorbers.

    Dick Lovett tried to blame us as we drove the car away from the garage after a service and therefore accepted their work, doesn't say much for a "BMW service"

    The service manager is a rude and arrogant man who thinks the customers need to check the car over themselves "as a BMW service may miss things"

    Seems like they aren't so good matey
    Pain & Pleasure ....... my e39 ...... meJulie ..... what a car
