Just moved here and SM BMW is the closest to me from MDR so I made a service visit, had a rear parking light go out and tire pressure light go off and thought I should get an oil change after driving across the country. Bill was my service manager and I scheduled an appointment at 7:30am, arrived promptly, was told I don't need an oil change but they'd change the bulb and put air in my tires and check the car for anything else after my road trip. He said it'd be ready early afternoon. First contact I received was at 1:40pm thinking my car is ready and I'm told they're out of the bulb and needed to order the part so my car needs to stay there til tomorrow. I had an interview and errands to run before a trip to Mexico so I was thinking 7 hours already seems ridiculous for one measly lightbulb there's no way it'd take them longer than that. I asked if there was a loaner car and he said no.. so then I asked him why it took him 7 hours to figure out he didn't have a part and notify me (I could have made other arrangements in the meantime). He just completely ignored me, restated they'd need to keep the car, not a single "sorry for the inconvenience" or ANYTHING and on top of that asked me for $1400 to change my tires. It took you all day to figure out you're out of a part and you think I'd trust you with anything else? I wouldn't trust you to pick out my gum! I was absolutely floored. I wish I could post pictures here but I did post screenshots of our leaving-much-to-be-desired exchange. This dealership is the pimple on the rim of BMW (and not wheel rim, if you know what I mean).
Proceed at your own risk.
Oh - the best part, when I got there, they couldn't even be bothered to put air in my tires while my car sat there for 10 hours and they tried to charge me $7 for the uber that took 20 mins to arrive, which I never even ended up taking round trip.
I've never been able to describe a customer service experience as dehumanizing so congratulations Bill & Santa Monica BMW, I can't believe BMW allows this. Luxury car my ***.
