"Great customer care!"
Tim, the owner, heard my concerns loud and clear. He reached out to me personally And resolved all the issues with the car. Not all businesses are willing to accept feedback from their customers. Tim does. He runs a great business that is why I will continue to take our cars to Wilmington Motor Works

"I've never been this disappointed"
It took all day for inspection and basic service. As a result, I didn't pick-up the car until the next morning. However, what is more disappointing is that a couple of days later, the coolant light came on. When I opened the hood and went to add antifreeze I found that the interior engine compartment had a considerable amount of leaves everywhere. (This car is garage keep.) I question whether the worked I paid for was even performed. If so, why wasn't the engine compartment vacuumed? In addition, my invoice says that all fluids were topped off. I would assume that means coolant. Having "maintenance" service performed is suppose to "prevent" issues.

We are very sorry for the trouble we caused Mrs. Sharbaugh, after reaching out to her she was gracious enough to give us a second chance, at which time we were able to correct all of her concerns.

Andrew said this business did not diagnose his vehicle properly before he purchased it when they told him they did and it cost him $600. He will never recommend this business to anyone. They are not good and they sucked money out of his wallet.

"Added the wrong Fluid"
Was asked to do an oil change with our oil. In addition they added Peak brand windshield fluid which now I have to drain the entire system to rid it of this foreign material. We only use genuine BMW parts or BMW approved parts. Peak brand is far from that.

"Disappointed in Service!"
I'm disappointed because I had my car in for an oil filter change and that didn't happen. A month later my oil light came on and my oil was 2 1/2 quarts low. I was furious because I paid for that service and someone decided to not do it and charge me anyway. I don't know if it was intentional or just over look by err. Prior to this event, I had all my trust in Wilmington Motor Works but I'm afraid you will have to earn my trust all over again.

"A little disappointed"
I usually get top service when I get service at Wilmington Motor Works but this visit was very disappointing because my fluids were not topped off as indicated on my bill...I have recommended this business to friends in the past but now I am not sure...

Mary said business rectified her initial dissatisfaction with them. They gave her a refund for the inspection fee because they were unable to help her with that. They are honest and helpful.

"Mechanical Work Great - Service Settings Reset could use a little more attention..."
Had Brake Fluid flush which was very fine, fast and car seemed fine. This is 7 July 2016. Day after I picked up car, just looking through iDrive Service reports, Next Brake fluid flush date is now Feb-2017. Huh? BMW recommends change every 2 years not 6M. Looking a little closer I notice the clock has been set to 07-Feb-2015. Hmmm, not sure how that happens but clearly the tech just reset the light w/o paying attention to the current date.
FIxed myself, as it's faster than returning to shop...first time I've had something like this happen with them. Generally find them top-notch.

"professional staff, nice establishment. // Charge for finding issues. Most shops evaluate vehicles, list issues, then charge to repair. They do not offset repair cost with inspection cost like other shops."
Good shop and people. I ask office assistant to check ac blower on s430 and cigarette lighter fuse on my 650i and he wanted to charge me for looking at it. 1 hour ($95) each car. When I asked did it come off the repair cost, he stated no. Looking for new shop!

"First Time Customer"
This was my first time using their services after a recommendation from a friend. I dropped off at night after closing hours and found the facility to be pretty dark outside. A light in the parking lot would be helpful. I was coming to this facility as my current repair person was inconvenient for me. I was impressed with them telling me a procedure the other repairman had suggested was not necessary, saving me several hundred dollars. They completed the work on time and for a reasonable amount. Very pleasant people and I will definitely return.
