PostSubject: 1st service.   7th October 2009, 16:09

Hi there,

Bee now booked in for her first service, next Thursday. The woman on the phone was unfriendly and abrupt. Hope that this isn't indicative of the service that my beloved Clubbie is going to get next week. Shocked

Does anybody know exactly what's done on the first service?

Doh. Thanks. Should have thought to look in there. Will go and get it from the glove box.

It's booked in with Vines Guildford. I hope that they are better than the last time I used them, otherwise I will be asking for recommendations..... Was pleased with the actual work done on her, but the guys and girls in the "office" were quite frankly a bit pants.

I am chilled like chilly Exclamation Wink lol! Enjoying a week by the seaside here in Burnham. Chilli been tucked up
in the garage since Sat so she doesn't get covered in any more sand. She was/covered in head 2 toe! Her big sister (black panther) is guarding her in front of the door!

Went out trying 2 find a couple of places on route to the petrol station. Both were not successful - I prefered to find a shell as Paul wanted me 2 try Vpower but were I thought the shell garage was it was BP & by now her empty light was on & I was panicking/getting very jittery affraid Never in my near 3years I never had her that low - I am paronoid under 1/2 lol! then she took £45 of ultimate. She know tucked back in the garage till we go back sat so
she enjoying the rest & I am not worried about her not being with me. We are enjoying drawling over lots of chilli's round here- we would fit in well! Even drove past the gorgues lightning blue s with the coopers number plate featured in Mm this month

Off 2 Bristol 2 morrow to sus out the shops etc with my
mum so all good

Hope all is well with you little clan

Luv

The seaside is always fab' whatever the weather. I am very jealous!!
Very cool that you spotted one of the cars featured in MM.
I know what you mean about the fuel gauge; I never let mine go below two red lights. David however, quite often leaves it 'til the last moment in his van, and sends me off on errands in it saying it will be fine!!
Be good at the shops tomorrow!!

Yeh it's been great - Weathers been pants but we can still see the sea from the living room so doesn't matter about the weather!

Yeh I could belive I spotted Alistar mini I think it was his girrfriend driving - was so busy drowling & connecting the p.plate with the mag,owner etc!

Yeh she will never get that low out of choice again! Was not a comfterable experince! I think it's a girl parnoia thing!

Ok Mummy 2 we will b good - Got to figure out busses & trains before we get there first!

Speak soon

i went to Vines Gatwick with my mini at the beginning of sept and got the nsf wheel sensor done i was quoted £168 but when i got there to pick up the bill was £212. was very peed off.

the service was shocking and their cleaning well i was disgusted. the service advisor did not know what he was doing and they don't even walk you out to your car. very very poor indeed.

i complained and got half the extra money back that i was charged and another clean, so i thought ok give them another chance and today when i took Martin's car in they C**KED it up again. personally i will be avoiding Vines in future.

When I saw the Dealer Princible at Baron's after all my problems I printed out all the comments from a post on tM about dealers service etc and highlighted comments about them, some from Rob. Wink

He was gob smacked Shocked and said he would be looking into what had been said Smile

Thats a good ploy, they will at least respect you for trying to help them. Did you get anything out of them for your kindness?

Will report back re: Vines of Guildford after Bees been in next Thursday.
After checking in the service booklet what they will check, am a bit concerned to see that they take the car out for a test drive. Anybody who knows how bad the road is on the Slyfield Industrial Estate would not want someone they don't know driving their car down that road.
