“Trusted repairers, kept well informed of all work required”

Written on: 20/05/2016 by 1983Hodges (1 review written)

I have a BMW 320D M Sport, My front suspension collapsed after driving over potholes. I had my car towed in by a local recovery company, Autoshift of Stevenage who were also professional and very reasonably priced. My car was taken into the workshop earlier than expected and A1bn began inspection of the damage to my car. Throughout the day, I was kept informed by what work was required and I was also given a price. Unfortunately there was further damage found while stripping the suspension… Read Full Review

“Quality, Value, Care”

Written on: 29/04/2016 by shanegr (1 review written)

Used A1BN for the first time for my Z3M Coupe. I will certainly be returning even though it's a 90 minute journey for me. Best service I've experienced since I bought the car 5 years ago. Great to meet people who are as passionate as they are professional. Genuinely satisfied… Read Full Review

“Carlsberg don't do BMW car specialists but if they did....”

Written on: 10/02/2016 by absolutelysuperb (1 review written)

they'd probably be the best BMW specialists in the world! Simply outstanding! Couldn't fault the service I received at all! And trust me, I'm hard to please when it comes to trusting car dealerships with your pride and joy. Had various engine maintenance work carried out on my 2007 335i coupe which included walnut blasting,coil pack replacement and various engine updates. Work was completed in good time to a very high standard whilst I was being kept updated continually via email at all… Read Full Review

“Alpina B3 2008. ”

Written on: 08/01/2016 by Carldouglassssss (1 review written)

Very happy customer, I have a big issue with customer service and the feel good factor, I also like to know that my car is in good hands and with individuals that are passionate about cars. My Alpina went in sluggish and underwent a good service and walnut blast and a few other important changes and software upgrades and was returned to me as the elegant beast it's meant to be. Big smile on face as I returned home on A1. Thank you A1BN. CD… Read Full Review

“Help at hand in a difficult situation regarding logistics”

Written on: 14/12/2015 by CR-M (1 review written)

I have recently had a situation where my daughters car was stranded in a different location to where she lived. I was returning to the UK after 2 years and on my return to the UK searched to find a garage that could help with the logistics and getting the car towed in. I called A1 BMW to assist, & without any hesitation they took control of the situation and I felt comfortable, assured and relieved. I wish to convey my huge appreciation and thanks to the team at A1 BMW for the kind… Read Full Review

“M3 SMG Magicians”

Written on: 30/06/2015 by Dboss79 (1 review written)

I had a severe issue with my e46 m3 smg making the car pretty much undrivaeable and very unreliable. They initially tried to fix with reloading software which solved the issue temporarily. Unfortunately it had to go back a few days later as the issue reoccurred. They traced the fault to a seized gear selector switch, replaced it, reprogrammed and re taught the system and now I have the strongest SMG in the UK! (I hope). Whilst there I also had other extensive work carried out on the brakes and… Read Full Review

“RE MAP 335D”

Written on: 17/06/2015 by chaserplus (2 reviews written)

Very friendly service with lift to get haircut whilst work is being carried out. Great re map, first for me. Lot smoother with lots of power. They advised me of some extra work that could cause problems in the future so had this done whilst there. Very good price. Will go again and its a 70 mile trip each way… Read Full Review

“Outstanding, Friendly & Knowledgeable Service ”

I took my E46 M3 to A1BN today for an Inspection II and I cannot recommend or commend them highly enough. From the minute you deal with them through to picking the car up the level of service afforded is as good as I have ever experienced. He explains things in plain English and takes photos of any parts that need changing ensuring you are safe in the knowledge that only work actually needed is carried out. I needed a couple of belts changing and photos were sent to prove they were… Read Full Review

“Great service, knowledge and value”

Written on: 23/04/2015 by Challenger3 (1 review written)

I've had my E46 M3 serviced and maintained by A1BN for 3 years. My experience has always been a positive one with the team alway offering prompt candid and no BS advice. Their knowledge of the cars puts BMW main dealers to shame and the quality of their work is without fault. If you have a BMW get it maintained here… Read Full Review

“Great Garage & Knowledgeable Staff”

Written on: 22/04/2015 by KatrinaHarvey1972 (1 review written)

Visited this garage a few weeks ago after having a problem with another recommend specialist garage. What can I say this garage was brilliant not only did they show me what was wrong with my vehicle after a previous garage had worked on it. They also gave me advice on what to do next. Couldn’t fault the mechanic looking at my car he was able to spot a mile off what part wasn’t working properly. The service from them and the other guys was great as well. Will be going there from now on for… Read Full Review

“Expertise and Excellence”

Written on: 14/02/2015 by Keatingqr412 (1 review written)

A few months after purchasing my 335i, I experienced the dreaded brake hydro pump failure warning lights. I contacted A1 for a diagnosis and this was confirmed. As my car was under warranty, they arranged to have it repaired under warranty by replacing the faulty unit with a refurbished one. This process took a few weeks in the run up to Xmas and they were very accommodating in attending to my car on weekends. The refurbished unit did not work so they sent my unit in for repairs whilst I used… Read Full Review

“The best you'll fine!”

Written on: 22/10/2014 by Mrlel (1 review written)

After owning several BMW's for the past 18 years, it is such a pleasure to have finally found a garage that I trust with my X5 (and I am very fussy!). When my car went in for some routine maintenance, the guys explained everything to me in great detail, even going out of their way to email pictures to me which wasn't asked for but it just added to the excellent level of customer care. I have used BMW dealerships throughout my time of owning BMW's yet have been left bitterly disappointed on… Read Full Review

“Perfection. No more to say.”

Written on: 07/10/2014 by singh763173 (1 review written)

Having been to a number of garages in the past, I have a lot of experience with good and bad mechanics. Having read up on A1BN, I felt comfortable to take my car down (from South East London... a considerable distance). The guys listened to me and understood my issues and did everything they could to not only identify, but also suggest the most effective fix both mechanically and cost wise. After two visits (I couldn't leave the car behind) the guys have repaired the car and it has never… Read Full Review

“Honest and Reliable”

Written on: 03/10/2014 by Doyliej (1 review written)

Started using A1 three years ago after getting fed up of the miserable and expensive service available to me locally (I live 30 miles away). We have three BMW's between us and they all go to A1 for any problems or services that pop up. The service you get here is first class, prices are very reasonable, the guys are extremely knowledgable and keep you informed of progress throughout the works. I had my 325D coupe remapped by A1 this week, what a difference. The car now pulls hard everywhere… Read Full Review

“Fabulous Friendly Service!”

Written on: 01/09/2014 by sjf21a (1 review written)

We have been using A1 for many years now to service my husband's Audi and have never had any reason to complain. We now take our daughter's Mini One there and have received the same honest,efficient and friendly service. We took her car in last week due to a scrapping noise coming from underneath, they fitted us in the next day and kept us informed the whole time whilst working on it. When they then discovered a very dangerous puncture they drove me to the nearest tyer stockist and did not let… Read Full Review

I went out of my way to see the guy's at A1 to get the leaky gearbox fixed on my e92because I had heard nothing but good things and I wasn't disappointed. Friendly, helpful, thorough and knowledgeable is all you could ask when leaving your car with someone. I'll be visiting them again in the near future to get some other bit's done!… Read Full Review

“True Experts”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by Dunkan (1 review written)

These guys really are good. I'm so glad to have taken my BMW to them, I had a long list of things to do to it and a repair that was difficult to diagnose. They took the time to sort it all out and were mindful of what was best for the car but also my wallet. Having just had it re-mapped by them as well, the car is now completely different and performing how I expected it to when I brought it. I honestly can not fault these guys, they are knowledgeable, experienced and more than helpful. I will… Read Full Review
