Seriously great service and people. Honest and fair. Would happily recommend anyone to them.
The guys are great, definitely take your BMW there.
Fantastic customer service from the team at Southern BM. Expertly repaired my 2011 323i and did so without the attitude and excessive cost of a dealer. Thank you and I will be back for all future servicing.
Great experience dealing with the team at SouthernBM. Sean in particular was fantastic with his knowledge, timely responses and ultimately work performed.
I have used many mechanics over the years for the many different types of vehicles in our company fleet and southern BM is one of the very few workshops I can highly recommend. Andrew and his team are also really passionate about their work and it shows.
