My dad is looking for a new car and asked if i would go to see a BMW with him .. he got as far as saying 'Big.." before i cut him short.

One quick google search and favourite son status was restored!

Safe to say we never visited Big Motoring World Group, selling Second hand used BMWs, for sale in Kent, BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X3 M3 Z3 Z4

LMAO reading this thread........

Nearly fell for... Big Motoring World Group, selling Second hand used BMWs, for sale in Kent, BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X3 M3 Z3 Z4... couple of weeks back (before I read this thread)

Was desperate to get my first BMW....was in the market for a 330D... website conviced me... drove down there from London... salesman came across as arrogant... would not let me test drive the car... apparently its only done after a deal has ben agreed upon!!!

Went with that ...as I was desperate (read bonkers) ...had a part exchange ... quoted me something ridiculous for my car ...this is the best part ...they go on to show me retail prices for cars similar to mine on "Autotrader" ...Was quite shocked, swore I had seen significantly higher prices for my car earlier in the week ...real gutted now as the 330D seemed more out my budget ...to top it off there is a "compulsory" 200 charge for HPI/Mileage/Title check!!! So either they dont know if what they are advertising is true or they are trying to recoup their costs and they are tryin to be upfront about this...

Went back home checked on Autotrader again and confirmed I was not in cuckoo land!!! (Not sure how they did this...the guy completed the search fields in front of me)

Googled Big Motoring World Group, selling Second hand used BMWs, for sale in Kent, BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X3 M3 Z3 Z4 and voila this thread came up....

Having said that...they do have a lot of cars...the lot was busy...can see why ppl fall for them...

Needless to say...wont be going anywhere near these crooks nor will any of my friends or family...and looking at this thread nor will anybody from this forum...

Have managed to find a 330D with a dealer since (these guys put me of independent dealer) ...awaiting delivery tommorow ...cant wait...

Keep up the good work guys...

there are plenty of perfectly reputable used car dealerships out there.. you just have to do a bit of work to make sure you are happy with the deal (i.e. HPI checks, AA or RAC inspection etc)

Having said that, I never had either of these done on my current car and it's been totally fine..

We shouldn't let this thread on Big Motoring World Group, selling Second hand used BMWs, for sale in Kent, BMW 1 Series, 3 Series, 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X3 M3 Z3 Z4 slip down the list since we owe it to the world to keep it up the rankings... and reach page sixteen?!

I had the pleasure of dealing with Big Motoring World. Service is terrible - everyone is busy with customers when you call. "Don't call us we will call you." What a bunch of cowboys. Conversation completely turns when challenged. Daft crooks have to resort to silly ideas to lure you to site.

I fell for the deposit scam at Big Motor World. Took 1K deposit. Car not onsite upon arrival. Manager offered to transfer deposit to another car. What a bunch of crooks. Need to go back to school or YTS programme on sales and customer service. Any gibbon can sell a car apart from these guys they have to resort to daft tricks to lure buyers to their site.

BIG MOTORING WORLD..................

If you can't lure customers, by good prices, good service and honesty........... then shut up shop and go do something else.............

An obvious candidate for Mat Allwright from BBC's "Rogue traders" - that guy is the "new" Roger Cook! He is a STAR!
